UFC lightweights Frank Camacho and Matt Frevola are set to throw down on June 20.
As first reported by MMA Junkie, Frank Camacho and Matt Frevola are expected to square off on the UFC’s upcoming card on June 20. The news comes shortly after Camacho announced he would have fight news coming. While no location (or event name) has officially been announced, the card is expected to be held at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Pending approval from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which meets later this week.
The lightweight fight sees Frevola (8-1-1) on the best run of his UFC career. After going 0-1-1 in his first two trips to the octagon, the “Steamrolla” has won two straight fights. Last time out, he took home the W against the highly touted Luis Pena.
Previously, Matt Frevola was booked opposite Roosevelt Roberts, at UFC Lincoln in April. That card was scuttled by the coronavirus pandemic, however.
Frevola will now look to make it three in a row against the always gritty Frank Camacho. Camacho, who won three consecutive Fight of the Night bonuses upon entering the UFC in 2017, is just 1-3 in his last four. He’s coming off a loss to Beneil Dariush, but represents a danger to anyone he throws down with. And a bonus opportunity.
The UFC’s June 20 date currently consists of the following bouts:
Marc-André Barriault vs. Oskar Piechota
Roxanne Modafferi vs. Lauren Murphy
Josh Emmett vs. Shane Burgos
Lyman Good vs. Belal Muhammad
Raquel Pennington vs. Marion Reneau
Gillian Robertson vs. Cortney Casey
Tecia Torres vs. Brianna Van Buren
Frank Camacho vs. Matt Frevola
