So instal Ubuntu first, then install FreeBsd. Then edit the /etc/grub.d/40_custom
file as per that thread. Then be sure to run:
to update your /boot/grub/grub.cfg
NOTE: You should not have to reinstall grub2 to the MBR with
sudo grub-install /dev/sda
as it says there, unless installing FreeBsd would alter the MBR in some way that I am not aware of. I would think that FreeBsd would give you the option not to install a boot loader during the installation so you can use the boot loader that you are currently using (i.e., grub2) as it says in post #4 in that thread.
