PIVOTAL FLYWEIGHT FRACAS! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Arena CDMX in Mexico City, Mexico, on Feb. 24, 2024, with a pivotal Flyweight fracas between former 125-pound kingpin, Brandon Moreno, and most recent title challenger, Brandon Royval, who replaces the red-hot (and injured) Iraqi “Prince,” Amir Albazi. In UFC Mexico City’s ESPN+-streamed co-main event, top-ranked Featherweight contenders, Yair Rodriguez (No. 3) and Brian Ortega (No. 4), will run it back after their initial encounter ended prematurely via gross injury.

Both flyweights came out firing to the cheers of an amped Long Island crowd. Mudaerji was able to do the most damage early on with heavy strikes and elbows inside. Schnell was in trouble multiple times, but somehow he stood his ground and kept plodding forward. Out of nowhere Schnell was able to hurt Mudaerji and ended up gaining full mount. Schnell launched heavy elbows from the top that bloodied Mudaerji pretty bad. Mudaerji reversed position to gain top control, but that’s when Schnell locked in the fight-ending submission.

Schnell, 32, was coming off a submission loss to Brandon Royval so this was a much-needed win in a growing flyweight division. “Danger” was the betting underdog, but somehow survived Mudaerji’s attacks to earn the biggest win of his UFC career.
