UFC vet Jorge Rivera says age, new generation of fighters prompted retirement

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Veteran fighter Jorge Rivera's mind was made up a long time ago - well before he finally clued in UFC officials.

At Thursday's UFC on FX 1 weigh-ins, he finally told his longtime employers what he had decided nearly three months earlier: Friday's fight with middleweight Eric Schafer would be the last of his career.

Following an impressive second-round TKO victory, 39-year-old "El Conquistador" told there'd be no changing his mind.
