Flyweight UFC vets Matt Schnell and Brandon Royval will face off at UFC 274.
Royval’s management firm, Iridium Sports, announced the booking on Thursday, and a person with knowledge of the matchup confirmed the news to MMA Fighting.
UFC 274 will take place in May 7, at an unknown location. It airs on ESPN+ pay per view.
Schnell takes the booking less than a month after losing his fourth scheduled date with one-time title challenger Alex Perez; medical issues forced Schnell to be removed from the card. The flyweight vet most recently appeared at UFC 262 and lost a decision to Rogerio Bontorin, leaving his record at 5-4 in the promotion.
Royval most recently appeared at UFC Vegas 46 and outpointed Bontorin by split decision to return to the win column after a pair of losses including one to current champ Brandon Moreno.
UFC 274 is expected to be headlined by a pair of title fights: light heavyweight champ Glover Teixeira defends against Jiri Prochazka while lightweight titleholder Charles Oliveira defends against Justin Gaethje.
