The city of New Jersey will be a world fighting epicenter once again as the UFC makes its return to the Prudential Center for the eight-time and first since UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Bader back in 2016. The event will be held this Saturday, August 3, and MMAIMPORTS is more than ready to deliver you live UFC results from both preliminary and main cards!
Matt Schnell is making his return to the flyweight division this Saturday, carrying his three-fight win streak with him. He firmly believes that is time for him to make a statement and immediate impact in the division. However, this is easier said than done. Jordan Espinosa (14-5-0-1) is on the five-fight win streak and is more than happy to welcome Schnell into the division and lunch himself through the rankings with a win.

Rd 1 – Both fighters are immediately throwing a lot of faints. Espinosa steps in and connects with a hard overhand right! That was fast! Another one lands for Espinosa! Schnell resets and scores a couple of leg kicks. Espinosa dives for a single leg takedown but Schnell shoots for a guillotine choke and transfers to the triangle! It looks tight!!! Espinosa taps out!!!
