Tyson Nam-Matt Schnell Flyweight Bout Rescheduled for Dec. 19 UFC Card

By Tristen Critchfield Oct 26, 2020

A flyweight showdown between Tyson Nam and Matt Schnell that was originally scheduled for September has been rebooked for UFC Fight Night on Dec. 19.

MMAjunkie.com was first to report the bout. UFC Fight Night takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a welterweight clash between Leon Edwards and Khamzat Chimaev. Nam vs. Schnell was slated for UFC Fight Night 177 on Sept. 12 but was scratched due to “weight management issues” for Schnell.

Nam would get a chance to compete one week later at UFC Fight Night 178, where he earned a second-round TKO win over Jerome Rivera. Prior to that, Nam scored a 32-second KO of Zarrukh Adashev at UFC on ESPN 10.

Schnell, meanwhile, saw a four-bout Octagon winning streak come to an end at UFC Fight Night 165, where he suffered a first-round knockout defeat at the hands of Alexandre Pantoja last December.
