Matt Schnell vs. Jordan Espinosa set for UFC on ESPN 5

The UFC isn’t done with the men’s flyweight division, and here’s more proof.

A freshly inked 125-pound bout between Matt Schnell and Jordan Espinosa is set for August 3 at UFC on ESPN 5, two people with knowledge of the situation told MMA Junkie. They asked to remain anonymous since the UFC has yet to make an announcement.

The location of UFC on ESPN 5 has not been finalized.

Schnell (13-4, 3-2 UFC) split his first four UFC appearances, with wins over Naoki Inoue and Marco Beltran. Moving up to bantamweight for his most recent fight in March at UFC Wichita, Schnell defeated Louis Smolka via first-round triangle choke.

Dropping back down to 125 pounds, Schnell will collide with the two-time Dana White’s Contender Series veteran Espinosa (14-5, 1-0 UFC).

Espinosa earned a UFC contract following his dominant appearance on the sophomore season of DWCS. The Jackson Wink MMA product impressed the UFC brass by picking up a third-round buzzer beater TKO win over Riley Dutro.

In his promotional debut at UFC Nashville, the Espinosa extended his winning streak to five, defeating Eric Shelton by unanimous decision.
