Matt Frevola has forced his way back in the win column.
Both Frevola (9-3-1 MMA, 3-3-1 UFC) and Valdez (10-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) threw the feeling-out process out the window and almost immediately began sprinting to the finish line.
In a chaotic fight, Frevola managed to be the more accurate and effective fighter, as he connected more than Valdez and dropped him multiple times throughout the round. In the last knockdown, Frevola was able to get back mount and ground-and-pounded his way to victory.
The result snapped a two-fight losing steak for Frevola, as he had back-to-back defeats to Arman Tsarukyan and Terrance McKinney. Meanwhile, Valdez saw his undefeated record come to an end.
