Menifield is coming off an 0-2 campaign in 2020 in which he dropped
a unanimous decision to Devin Clark
at UFC 250 and suffered a second-round KO defeat to Ovince St.
Preux at UFC Fight Night 176 on Sept. 5. The Contender Series
alum was unbeaten in his first nine professional outings, including
KO/TKO victories over Vinicius
Moreira Castro and Paul Craig
in the Octagon.
After a pair of triumphs on the Contender Series, Knight was
successful in his promotional debut, as he earned a unanimous
decision over Aleksa
Camur at UFC 253 on Sept. 26. The 32-year-old Thornton Martial
Arts member has lost just once in 10 pro appearances — a
first-round TKO defeat to fellow UFC talent Tafon
Nchukwi at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 80 in November
