Welcome to CagedInsider’s coverage of UFC Fight Night 124, a FOX Sports 1-broadcast event that came to us from St. Louis, Missouri and featured “The Korean Superboy” versus Jeremy Stephens in the main event. Much of the rest of the card was marred by last-minute dropouts, so we lost Uriah Hall, Vitor Belfort and Thiago Alves, but hey, what can you do?
I’ll tell you what the UFC does: They put together some guys who are going to throw down like rabid animals, which is pretty awesome to watch.
Rabid animal number one is Marco Polo Reyes, a TUF Latam 2 vet who’s been scoring knockouts (and getting knocked out himself) in the Octagon for a while now. Rabid animal number two is Matt Frevola, who won a slot on the UFC roster after an impressive performance on “Dana White’s Looking for a Fight”.
Apparently eager to make a good first impression in the UFC proper, Frevola comes out swinging, and Reyes obliges him, with the duo literally standing about two feet away from each other pitching fastballs. Frevola’s mouthpiece goes flying, there’s a brief pause to retrieve it, and then finally BOOM! Reyes puts him away. It was about 15 minutes of fighting crammed into one minute, and really, Frevola deserves a ton of credit for going for it.
Results: Marco Polo Reyes def. Matt Frevola via KO (Punch) at 1:00, R1
