CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLE-DIP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to “The Fight Mecca,” Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y., on Sat., Nov. 12, 2022, featuring two highly-anticipated championship showdowns. In UFC 281’s pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, will look to settle the score with former kickboxing foe and No. 5-seeded contender, Alex Pereira. In the ESPN+-streamed PPV co-main event, women’s Strawweight champion, Carla Esparza, intends to defend her newly-won title for the first time against former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Zhang Weili.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Schnell, who lost his mother during this training camp, came out like man on fire. He caught Royval with solid punches before threatening with multiple submissions. Royval is as savvy as they come so he was able to wiggle free and lock up a powerful guillotine choke. It was extremely tight which prompted Schnell to double tap on the side of Royval’s legs as the referee moved in.

Royval, who is currently ranked No. 6 in the UFC’s flyweight division, was coming off a split-decision win over Rogerio Bontorin so this performance was well-needed. The highlight-reel finisher now has three submission stoppages in just six Octagon appearances and should land a massive divisional matchup his next time out.
