Jonny Parsons will take on Yusaku Kinoshita at UFC Vegas 95 at the APEX in Las Vegas. The three round welterweight scrap will go down on August 10, 2024.

News of the bout was first reported by Nolan King of MMA Junkie (via X, formerly known as Twitter) Friday.

Jonny Parsons (9-3) made his debut in the UFC last July when he finished UFC vet, Danny Roberts, with punches in the final seconds of the second round. Parsons and Roberts won fight of the night honors, for what was an extremely exciting fight, while it lasted. Jonny put together a win streak mostly in iKon Fighting Federation (based out of Las Vegas, Nevada) and had a successful appearance on the 2021 season of the Contender Series to birth his UFC signing.

Yusaku Kinoshita (6-2) is a product of the 2022 season of Contender Series where he stopped his undefeated opponent, Jose Henrique Souza, in the third round.  Unfortunately, the Japanese fighter has not fared well with the UFC since he was signed. ‘Wonderboy’ is 0-2 with the promotion, losing his debut to Adam Fugitt in February of last year and falling to Billy Goff in August. Yusaku was finished in the first round of both bouts and is now looking to get back on the right track.

UFC Vegas 95, which goes down on Saturday, August 10th, now has six scheduled bouts and the following line up:

  • Jarno Errens vs. Youssef Zalal
  • Marcin Tybrua vs. Serghei Spivac II
  • Karl Williams vs. Jhonata Diniz
  • Allan Nascimento vs. Jafel Filho
  • Danny Barlow vs. Uros Medic
  • Jonny Parsons vs. Yusaku Kinoshita
