CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLE-DIP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to “The Fight Mecca,” Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y., on Sat., Nov. 12, 2022, featuring two highly-anticipated championship showdowns. In UFC 281’s pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, will look to settle the score with former kickboxing foe and No. 5-seeded contender, Alex Pereira. In the ESPN+-streamed PPV co-main event, women’s Strawweight champion, Carla Esparza, intends to defend her newly-won title for the first time against former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Zhang Weili.

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

McKinney was filling in on a few days notice but he did compete little more than one week ago at LFA 109. It didn’t take McKinney long to find his range and land a beautiful combination that sent Frevola crashing to the canvas. McKinney followed up with a few insurance shots before the referee stepped in for the stoppage.

This is one of the best ways to make a UFC debut and McKinney did it against one of the tougher guys at 155 pounds. The young prospect did injure his knee in celebration after the quick stoppage so hopefully it’s not too serious and McKinney can book another Octagon appearance in 2021.
