Demopoulos (7-4) will look to follow-up her breakthrough performance in January where she rallied back to submit Silvana Gomez and have a viral post-fight interview in which she leapt into the arms of Joe Rogan. A former LFA champion, “Lil Monster” will be making her third UFC appearance after previously making her promotional debut on short notice at flyweight last year.
Frey (11-6) enters the fight on a two fight win-streak and will be competing for the first time in 2022. A former Invicta atomweight champion, Frey enters the bout with extensive experience that has seen her face opponents such as Seo Hee Ham, Ayaka Hamasaki, and Kay Hansen. She enters the bout with UFC victories over Gloria de Paula and Ashley Yoder and last fought in July of 2021.
No main event or venue for the card has been announced at this time.
