The heavy-hitting duo immediately took to the center of the Octagon early and lone behold, one fighter went down and it was "Cisco." "Hands of Stone" immediately pounced on the downed Mexican-American, landing a plethora of punches.
After exchanging for a brief period on the feet, in what was a true testament to each fighter's tenacity and chin, the former Flyweight Lineker capitalized on a lazy takedown attempt from Rivera, cinching up the fight-ending guillotine choke.
Here's hoping for a long and fruitful stay for the Brazilian at 125 pounds and an even more awesome night of fights!
