Schnell Jumps to 135, Replaces Perez
Matt Schnell will not be fighting "Mighty Mouse" for the 125lb belt at the TUF 24 Finale, but he will be entering the octagon at bantamweight as a late replacement against Rob Font. Schnell will be replacing an injured Alejandro Perez due to an injury to his collar bone. MMA Junkie was first to report the switch that will be taking place at TUF 24 Finale.
Font who will be standing opposite late replacement Matt Schnell, is coming off of a loss to Jon Lineker at UFC 198 and sees this as an opportunity to jump back into the win column.
The TUF 24 Finale takes place on on Dec. 3 at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nev. "Mighty Mouse" Johnson will fight TUF 24 Finals that take place this Wednesday November 30, between Tim Elliott and Hiromasa Ogikubo.
