Frevola was due to take on Frank Camacho on the preliminary card of the event in Las Vegas on Saturday night, but UFC officials took the decision to pull him from the fight card after his cornerman and UFC featherweight Billy Quarantillo had tested positive from one of the regular COVID-19 tests instituted during fight week.

Frevola had previously missed out on a fight with Roosevelt Roberts in Lincoln, Nebraska in April when the event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Both Roberts and Frevola were due to compete in separate matchups this weekend, but while Roberts' bout with Jim Miller looks set to go ahead, as planned, Frevola's bout with Camacho has been ruled out.
