UFC lightweight Matt Frevola will return at UFC 270 on Jan.22 against Genaro Valdez.

“Steamrolla” spoke to The AllStar’s John Hyon Ko about:

  • The Valdez Matchup
  • Honeymoon in Italy
  • Training at Serra-Longo

Thoughts on Valdez (5:36)

“He’s a good undefeated fighter with a lot of finishes. I saw him on the Contender Series and he’s tough. He comes out throwing but I saw he’s a Mexican fighter. I’m thinking he’s a boxer but then you go and look at all of his fights he looks to grapple every fight. So I wanna say he’s almost like a new-age Mexican MMA fighter which I’m excited for. I’m very well-rounded so I’m prepared for it.

“I love to strike. I love to wrestle. I love jiu-jitsu. So that’s why I love mixed martial arts. Being able to use every aspect of fighting and putting it all together in the cage is what always comes most natural to me.”

Prediction for the Fight(11:15)

“This guy Valdez. He’s a good, undefeated fighter making his UFC debut. I remember when I was undefeated making my UFC debut thinking that my shit don’t stink and I had a little wake-up call. That’s what I plan on doing to this guy. Welcoming him to the UFC and welcome him to the talent level that’s in the UFC.”
