Matt Frevola (8-2-1) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Arman Tsarukyan back in January, but we are confident that loss will not look bad at all down the line as Tsarukyan has the makings of a future title contender. The loss snapped a two-fight win streak including a unanimous decision over Jalin Turner and a split decision over Luis Pena. Those wins were not as convincing as he would have liked but they were a relief after going without a win in his first two UFC fights. He got starched by Polo Reyes and then fought to a draw with Lando Vannata.

Frank Camacho (22-9) is 2-5 in the UFC, but he has been fed to the lions. His losses were to Li Jingliang (debut), Drew Dober, Geoff Neal and Beneil Dariush. He broke those wins up with a split decision over Damien Brown and a knockout over Nick Hein, but he is now coming off the fifth knockout loss of his career after Justin Jaynes clapped him in the first round a year ago.


This is a kinder match-up for Camacho than some of his previous opponents, but Frevola is another beast and this is destined to be a violent battle. They are both aggressive with Camacho relying on his punching power and Frevola relying on his wrestling.

Camacho needs to forget about his previous losses and stick to his strengths by forcing the pressure on the feet and set up a knockout blow early. He needs to put Frevola on the back foot and if he lands a few clean shots, expect Frevola to look for the takedown.

Camacho has great takedown defence, but he still needs to hunt the knockout early as Frevola has better cardio and he has the ability to wrestle away the rounds. A Frevola decision or Camacho knockout is your best bet here.
