Roosevelt Roberts vs. Matt Frevola on tap for UFC event on Sept. 12

    Roosevelt Roberts and Matt Frevola are scheduled to compete once again.

    Multiple people with knowledge of the promotion’s plans confirmed to MMA Fighting that the lightweight matchup will take place at the UFC’s event on Sept. 12 following Frevola’s announcement of the bout on his Instagram page. The card is expected to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

    Roberts hopes to get back on track after having his two-fight winning streak snapped by Jim Miller at UFC on ESPN 11 in June via first-round submission. Prior to that, “The Predator” picked up a unanimous decision win over Alexander Yakovlev in November, along with a second-round submission victory over Brok Weaver at May’s UFC on ESPN 9 event.

    Frevola was scheduled to meet his upcoming opponent in April at UFC Lincoln before the event was scrapped due to COVID-19 concerns. “Steamrolla” is unbeaten in his last three appearances, including decision wins over Jalin Turner and Luis Pena. Frevola was set to face Frank Camacho at UFC on ESPN 11 but was forced to withdraw after cornerman Billy Quarantillo tested positive for the coronavirus.

    The UFC’s Sept. 12 event will be headlined by a pivotal light heavyweight bout between Glover Teixeira and Thiago Santos.
