MASSIVE MIDDLEWEIGHT MATCH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Sydney, Australia, for the first time in five years on Sat., Sept. 9, 2023, with a 185-pound world title fight inside Qudos Bank Arena.

In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

Both men came out firing like the fight was only booked for five minutes. They each landed, but Frevola had the clear power advantage. During two minutes of absolute chaos Frevola scored four massive knockdowns. Valdez proved to be tough as nails and kept returning to his feet to swing on “Steamrolla,” but Frevola kept his composure and eventually finished the fight with a TKO from back control.
