On Friday, June 1, the UFC will host UFC Fight Night 131: Rivera vs. Moraes from the Adirondack Bank Center in Utica, N.Y.

In the night’s main event, surging bantamweight contender Jimmie Rivera clashes with former World Series of Fighting titleholder Marlon Moraes. Rivera has tasted defeat just once in his 22-fight career, a split decision loss in his second bout, and has won five straight bouts inside the Octagon. Brazil’s Moraes, meanwhile, stumbled in his UFC debut, a split decision loss to Raphael Assuncao, but has since rebounded with wins over John Dodson and Aljamain Sterling.

The action kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET with three bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card taking place at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
