Alonzo Menifield vs. Carlos Ulberg preview

Menifield (15-3-1 MMA, 8-3-1 UFC) has been on a roll since 2022, winning four of his past five fights. His lone blemish was a majority draw against Jimmy Crute, which came about because a fence grab caused a one-point deduction. Aside from that, Menifield has wins over Askar Mozharov, Misha Cirkunov, Jimmy Crute, and most recenly Dustin Jacoby last December.

Of those five wins, four in a row have been by stoppage (two knockouts, two submissions).
