MMA Junkie Writes:
Cummings, a 33-year-old wrestler based out of Missouri, looks for the first three-fight winning streak of his UFC career following recent submissions wins over Alexander Yakovlev and Nathan Coy. He meets former title challenger Alves, a 34-year-old Brazilian who recently halted a two-fight skid with a decision victory over Patrick Cote in April. A subsequent booking with Mike Perry was scrapped in September after a hurricane forced Alves to pull out of the fight.
Reyes, a 33-year-old Mexican fighter, was on a four-fight winning streak before a recent TKO loss to James Vick. He now meets Frevola, a 27-year-old promotional newcomer who submitted Jose Flores at DWCS 8 in August.
Krause, 31, recently moved from lightweight to welterweight to score a decision victory over Tom Gallicchio for his third straight win. He takes on White, a 29-year-old Missouri native who recently score a TKO victory over Mitch Clarke for his second victory in three fights.
