Tresean Gore captured his first Octagon victory earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 29, 2022) at UFC Vegas 63 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the former Ultimate Fighter standout stunned middleweight Josh Fremd with a second-round submission (guillotine coke).

EXCITING WELTERWEIGHT TILT! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Amway Center in Orlando, Fla., for the first time in more than four years with an intriguing Welterweight scrap that will see No. 7-ranked contender, Stephen Thompson, battle Kevin Holland. In UFC Orlando’s co-main event, Heavyweight knockout artists collide when No. 4-seeded contender, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with No. 5-ranked Sergei Pavlovich.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Fremd was able to use his long stature in the early going to keep Gore on his back foot. It allowed Fremd to get an early jump on the scorecards with solid strikes. The second round saw Fremd work inside and try to score a takedown along the cage, but as he changed levels Gore was able to sneak his arm underneath the chin and lock up the choke. Fremd tried to fight the squeeze, but nearly had his head popped off before he went to sleep.

Gore, 28, is now 1-2 as a member of the UFC roster after turning in a few impressive outings on TUF. The middleweight prospect hasn’t had much in-cage experience to fall back on so this is a big feather in his cap, especially since he’s a striker first.
