Without any further ado, let's jump into it.
#4 Matt Frevola vs. Lando Vannata:
Matt Frevola is finally ready to take part on a UFC pay-per-view again. After having a 6-0 undefeated run in his professional career, a win in the final of the Contender Series saw him get a fight against Marco Polo Reyes at UFC Fight Night.
That did not go well for him, as he found himself knocked out. Things can change now, finally as he has another fight, this time against Lando Vannata.
Vannata comes into this fight on the back of a bad run. After going 8 fights without a single loss in his UFC career, his last 5 fights have seen him lose three and draw one.
Both fighters will look to outdo the other and make their way up the rankings.
