UFC middleweight veteran Jorge “El Conquistador” Rivera has been having somewhat of a career resurgence inside the Octagon. Currently on a three fight win streak, he has positioned himself to possibly make a run at the title. He’s also emerged as one of the least likely candidates for the next season of American Idol, and many industry insiders are already predicting him to be among the finalists. Could you imagine if he were to win the UFC middleweight title and become the next American Idol winner at the same time? It would be a truly historical moment for the sport and open up MMA’s fan base to a whole new prospective audience. Good luck “El Conquistador”!!
