Matt Frevola finally got his first UFC win on Saturday night. Frevola grinded past Jalin Turner at UFC 236 to earn a clean-sweep unanimous decision in the lightweight bout, a victory that felt like a long time coming. Frevola earned his way into the UFC in August 2017 with a victory on Dana White’s Contender Series, but he was knocked out five months later by Marco Polo Reyes in the first minute of his UFC debut. For an encore, Frevola fought to a majority draw with Lando Vannata last November. So finally, in this third attempt, Frevola, 28, has his first official UFC win. Backstage at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena, Frevola talked about the feeling, how tough the 155-pound division is, what he wants next, and the fact that he’ll have to report for Army Reserve duty before getting back into a training camp
