“Whether I win or lose, two or three days later, I’m back in the gym. I feel determined and I want to get better.”
Frey (8-4) will headline Invicta FC 39 opposite No. 1 contender Ashley “Smashley” Cummins (7-4). The event takes place from Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan., and streams live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. CT.
