FiveOuncesOfPain.com (www.FiveOuncesOfPain.com) has learned through several sources close to Dante Rivera that the New Jersey middleweight is involved with the current taping in Las Vegas for the seventh season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
The 33-year old has a pro record of 10-3 and a documented amateur record of 1-1.
The Team Renzo Gracie representative broke onto the national scene in 2007, competing twice for the International Fight League. He lost his IFL debut last February in Atlanta when he submitted in the second round to strikes from Tim Kennedy.
Rivera rebounded with a victory for Felix Martinez’s Cage Fury Fighting Championships in June when submitted Alex Aquino with a heel hook at 2:41 of round 2. He then recorded his first-ever victory in the IFL this past August in East Rutherford, N.J. during the undercard of the promotion’s team semifinals. Rivera notched the win when he TKO’d Nissim Levy of Team Tiger Schulman at 1:15 of round 3.
Rivera is the third fighter confirmed by FiveOuncesOfPain.com and ProElite.com as having been selected for the seventh season of “The Ultimate Fighter.” Aaron Meisner of Philadelphia and Mike Marrello of Chicago have been reported as being on the show as well.
