BLOCKBUSTER BANTAMWEIGHT BATTLE! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Newark, N.J., for the first time in more than three years on Sat., May 6, 2023, with a blockbuster Bantamweight collision inside Prudential Center that will see Aljamain Sterling attempt another successful title defense against returning two-division titleholder and former gold medal-winning Olympic wrestler, Henry Cejudo. In UFC 288’s last-minute pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, former Welterweight title challenger, Gilbert Burns, locks horns with No. 4-seeded contender, Belal Muhammad, in a five-round, 170-pound No. 1 contender eliminator match.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Both lightweights came out firing, but it was Frevola who landed the more meaningful shots. His movement gave him angles to attack and bloody Dober’s face in the early going. Dober stayed dangerous, though, until a head kick from “Steamrolla” left him on weak legs. Moments later, Frevola landed a left hand followed by a massive right that sent Dober crashing to the canvas. Frevola followed up with vicious ground-and-pound until referee Herb Dean had seen enough.

After the fight, the 32-year-old Frevola decided to issue a callout to rising lightweight star Paddy Pimblett. The English fighter is currently rehabbing after his controversial win over Jared Gordon this past December, but when he’s healthy this makes for a great matchup.
