Brandon Royval is an American Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter, currently fighting in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is a two-time LFA flyweight champion and has made his UFC debut in 2020.

Royval was born on April 25, 1991 in Aurora, Colorado. He started training MMA while he was still in high school and went on to become a collegiate wrestler at Western State Colorado University. After college he moved back to Denver, Colorado where he started training at Factory X for professional MMA fights. His first pro fight came about when he fought former LFA championship challenger Kyle Estrada on February 11th 2014; this bout ended with Royval winning via unanimous decision.

From thereon Royval continued to build up his record as a professional fighter by competing in various promotions such as RFA and LFA before eventually signing with the UFC in January 2020. At the time of his signing, Brandon had amassed an impressive 12-4 record that included wins over fellow UFC competitors Tim Elliott and Matt Schnell who both held titles at one point or another before they faced off with him; not to mention Chad Curry whom Royval defeated via TKO just weeks prior to joining the promotion’s roster. This solidified him as one of the top contenders for flyweight gold upon entering into the UFC fold.

Since then Royval has gone on to compete against some of the best fighters within that division including Demetrious Johnson whom many consider being one of if not themost dominant champion ever produced by any organization regardless of weight classes or genders involved; needless to say their fight did not end favorably for Brandon but it gave fans everywhere proof that despite taking such a huge loss he wasn’t afraid take risks allowing himself more opportunities down the line especially within an already tough division like Flyweight which can be hard enough due its having fewer number active fighters compared other divisions throughout all combat sports out there these days making competition between members much harder than expected from time -to-time .

Aside from competing inside octagon however Brandon also teaches grappling classes for kids along side doing free seminars outside martial arts schools around Denver ,Colorado whenever possible so others can learn more about proper techniques techniques used during mixed martial arts functions plus even help out individuals wanting better themselves through learning self defense strategies along with increasing overall fitness habits just name few ;which ultimately allows person gain something beneficial once their done depending what they decide work towards ,this only makes thing pretty exciting seeing how talented experienced fighter like himself use spare moments continue aid those who want growth without compromising anything career wise whatsoever which speaks volumes regarding character someone possesses leaving no reason doubt why should stay tuned when comes seeing what else can accomplish next down road before hitting retirement like most people thought would happen sooner rather later especially after loss against Demetrious Johnson recent past .
