CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLE DIP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Phoenix, Ariz., on Sat., May 7, 2022, with a blockbuster championship doubleheader. Headlining the pay-per-view (PPV) event will be Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, seeking to defend his title against No. 1-ranked contender, Justin Gaethje. In UFC 274’s co-main event, women’s Strawweight champion, Rose Namajunas, looks to avenge her loss against No. 2-seeded, Carla Esparza. And top-ranked Lightweight contenders collide when Michael Chandler (No. 5) locks horns with Tony Ferguson (No. 7) in a fan-friendly 155-pound clash for the ages.

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.
