Newark, NJ – UFC lightweight Matt Frevola has a new feather in his cap becoming the first man to knock Drew Dober out in 12 years at UFC 288 on Saturday night.
“On my best day there’s nobody in the world that I can’t beat. I believe in my skills, I believe in my power, and if I hit anybody clean they can get knocked out,” Frevola told Cageside Press among other reporters at his post-fight scrum.
“I’ve been doing this for a while now. I know I’m good. I know that I’m capable and I just need the opportunity.”
An opportunity he took advantage of taking out one of the tougher fighters in the lightweight division. Dober has been known to get into brawl and rely on his iron chin to get him through tough wars.
“We got the opportunity against a high rank guy, and I landed, and I finished. I know that I’m human as well. He could have easily landed on me and finished me. I was in there and I did what I needed to do,” he said.
“I landed and I finished.”
Following the finish Frevola shot his shot and called out fellow lightweight Paddy Pimblett who is currently recovering from surgery on his ankle.
“I think the fight makes sense. He’s 4-0 in the UFC. He has to fight somebody, why not me?,” said Frevola.
“I’ve been saying it’s only a matter of time. He’s been ignoring my calls for a minute, but I guarantee you he’ll hear that one.”
With Pimblett dealing with recovery at the moment it’s to be seen when he will be available. Frevola didn’t mind shooting his shot and calling out a date and place for the fight.
“We’ll see. I like MSG in November. Sounds pretty good to me,” he said.
