UFC’s Jimmie Rivera Issues Threat To Aljamain Sterling: ‘Watch out for my wife!’

Top UFC bantamweights Jimmie Rivera and Aljamain Sterling want to fight each other. However, each man is already booked against very formidable foes.

That isn’t stopping either fighter though, from talking smack about the other. Not only through the media, but also on Twitter, and apparently even when they see each other.

In a new interview with MMAJunkie.com, Sterling broke it down:

“There’s nobody in the top 10 for me to fight. So what I plan on doing, I’m gonna try to take a dump on Rani Yahya, then I want to fight that f*cking (expletive) Jimmie Rivera.”

“Who has their girlfriend defending them on Twitter if they’re a fighter. We’re going to fight – not me and your girlfriend, your wife, whatever. That shit doesn’t make sense to me.”

“I saw him before I came out here. And I’m a very nice guy in person. I just said, ‘What’s up, Jimmie?’ And he looks at me, giving me this weird face like he doesn’t want to say anything, kind of rolls his eyes, walks away, turns back around, and says, ‘It’s not me you should be worried about; it’s my wife.’

“And I’m just like, ‘Oh my God, you’re such a (expletive).’ Who says that?”
