LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDERS CLASH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., June 25, 2022, with a thrilling Lightweight contenders’ bout featuring No. 11-ranked Arman Tsarukyan taking on No. 12-seeded Mateusz Gamrot. In UFC Vegas 57’s co-main event, No. 10-ranked Welterweight, Neil Magny, will attempt to halt the momentum of undefeated Shakvat Rakhmonov (No. 15).

Mozharov is known for his punishing standup so Menifield smartly shot in for an early takedown. The UFC newcomer was able to regain his footing to land some solid strikes, but Menifield moved in again for another takedown. That’s when he caught Mozharov in a crucifix position and launched heavy elbows until the referee stepped in for the stoppage.

Menifield, 34, was coming off a unanimous decision loss to William Knight in his last outing so this win was just what the doctor ordered. The powerful light heavyweight is now 3-1 in his last four trips to the Octagon and seems to be getting over the cardio issues that plagued him early into his UFC career.
