Lasts seven seconds at UFC 263

Frevola lost to Terrance McKinney via KO (punch) at 0:07 of Round 1 at UFC 263 on Saturday in Glendale, Arizona.
ANALYSIS
Sometimes it's just not your night. Frevola was upset with referee Jason Herzog's stoppage, but he was done. It was absolutely the correct call, although that won't make Frevola feel any better about being knocked out in seven seconds in a fight in which he entered as a -165 favorite. "The Steamrolla" has now lost back-to-back fights on the heels of a three-fight unbeaten streak (2-0-1).

Gets short notice fighter
LightweightUFC
June 8, 2021
Frevola will now take on Terrance McKinney in a lightweight bout at UFC 263 on Saturday, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Frevola was supposed to take on Frank Camacho, but he was forced to withdraw due to injuries suffered in a recent car accident. Frevola will now get McKinney, who just fought last Friday and is on very short notice. McKinney will be making his UFC debut and has a 10-3 career MMA record.
In search of new opponent
LightweightUFC
June 8, 2021
Frevola is in need of a new opponent at UFC 263 on Saturday following the withdrawal of Frank Camacho due to undisclosed reasons, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
This is a matchup that previously had to be rescheduled due to a positive COVID-19 test in Frevola's corner, but this time the issues are on Camacho's side. Since that cancellation, Frevola has been forced to pull out of a fight with Roosevelt Roberts before losing a matchup against a heavy Arman Tsarukyan in January. It appears the UFC will attempt to keep Frevola on the card, however, and is currently in search of a replacement opponent.
Fighting Camacho in June
LightweightUFC
April 17, 2021
Frevola will fight Frank Camacho in a lightweight matchup at UFC 263 on June 12, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Frevola will look to bounce back from January's loss to Arman Tsarukyan in which he was outmatched and lost in a unanimous decision. He'll take on Camacho, who will be making his first appearance since losing to Justin Jaynes last June.
Can't handle opponent change
LightweightUFC
January 23, 2021
Frevola lost to Arman Tsarukyan via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 26-30) at UFC 257 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
On the surface, this seems like a disastrous performance for Frevola. While he wasn't the least bit competitive for nearly the entirety of the bout, Frevola's toughness was on full display, as was his willingness to accept this fight following the shenanigans and release of his originally scheduled opponent, Ottman Azaitar, just a couple days earlier. A product of Dana White's Contender Series, Frevola has extremely limited power (one career knockout win), and instead relies on his wrestling to be successful. The issue Saturday was that he was facing an opponent in Tsarukyan who was clearly superior in that particular area. We should see Frevola again in the near future.
Facing new, heavy opponent
LightweightUFC
January 22, 2021
Frevola will fight a heavy Arman Tsarukyan in a lightweight bout at UFC 257 on Saturday, Aaron Bronsteter of TSN.ca reports.
ANALYSIS
Frevola's previous opponent Ottman Azaitar (undisclosed) was forced to withdraw, but Tsarukyan also lost his opponent for UFC 257 since Nasrat Haqparast is out with an illness, leading to the quick matchup change. Tsarukryan missed the lightweight limit in both weigh-in attempts Friday, so he'll forfeit 20 percent of the purse versus Frevola.
