Jorge Luis Rivera (born February 28, 1972) is a mixed martial arts fighter who was featured on The Ultimate Fighter 4. His first fight in the UFC was a unanimous decision victory over David Loiseau at UFC 44. He then followed up with back-to-back submission losses to Lee Murray at UFC 46 and Rich Franklin at UFC 50 before rebounding with a unanimous decision win over Dennis Hallman at UFC 55.

Rivera was defeated by Chris Leben by technical knockout before appearing on The Ultimate Fighter 4 as a middleweight contestant. Although Rivera was not successful in achieving a slot in the middleweight finals, he appeared on the live card of The Ultimate Fighter 4 Finale, defeating Edwin DeWees by technical knockout in the first round. Jorge then was defeated by Terry Martin by an uppercut at UFC 67 by KO fourteen seconds into round one. Jorge broke his jaw from the knockout punch and did not compete until UFC 80, where he knocked out heavy favorite Kendall Grove in the first round. He has gone 2-1 since his upset, with wins over Nissen Osterneck and submission artist Rob Kimmons, with his only loss since coming from Martin Kampmann.

He is now rumoured to be taking on former UFC middleweight title challenger Nate Quarry at UFC Fight Night 21.

Personal lifeEdit

Rivera has four children, a son and three daughters.The oldest daughter passed away on August 5, 2008.[1]
