During the course of career mode you probably be given a rematch (I say probably because you don't pick your opponents and I've done entire careers never getting a rematch.) In order to get a rivalry fight you have to LOSE any non-title rematch. The next fight should be a rivalry fight against the fighter you just lost to.
NOTE: This must be done before attaining a title. Losing a rematch for a title will NOT get you a rivalry fight. You have three leagues to do this in, so if you still dont have it after you win the Strikeforce or Mystic belt than you can just lose a couple fights to rank down then start winning again and hope you get a rematch. The career mode is always 40 fights long.

I think there may need to be a slight adjustment to the solution. I don't think losing a rematch will always give you the potential for a rivalry fight. Rather, the score has to be tied after a rematch. In other words, if you beat someone and they challenge you to a rematch, then you have to lose. However, if you lost at first, then you should win the rematch to have a shot at the rivalry fight. The phone messages between each fight kind of hint at this.
Also, jsigversion1 has posted something similar at X360a with this--"ok, i figured it out... when you get a rematch fight, do the opposite of what you did [at first] so you are tied after it at 1 win a piece, down the line you'll get him again [for the rivalry], win that one."

One other thing--after I tied things up with three different fighters via rematch in the last leg of my career, I still couldn't land a rivalry. I was running out of chances before the career ended. So, I started dashboarding before I accepted the contract on one of my last fights. I didn't want it to save and lock in the wrong fighter. Every time I reloaded my career, it would give me a different guy to fight next. Other words, it's pretty random. After about the fourth dasboard, it finally gave me a rivalry.

Also, rivalries don't need to be directly after the rematch. They can pretty much spring up any time within the league you're a part of. To reiterate, they just need to be set up properly as tied after the rematch. If you do this, you'll probably just be given a rivalry if you stay in the league you're in. If you start nearing the end of the career, try the dashboard trick. Worked for me.

Also, important note: As has been said here before, it can't be contender or championship fights. They won't unlock the achievement.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: So it looks like contender fights can still count as part of this process. See comments. Championship do not, though.
