ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. — UFC bantamweight standout Jimmie Rivera of Elmwood park outpointed Thomast Almeida (21-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) this weekend.

The Ramsey native  (21-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) says he'll be resting his body, but isn't losing sight of what the future could hold: a championship title.

He's hoping to fight former bantamweight champ T.J. Dillashaw for an interim belt — if current champ Cody Garbrandt is still nursing a back injury that forced him to withdraw earlier this year — or go up against former title holder Dominick Cruz, multiple sources report.
