A light heavyweight bout between Misha Cirkunov and Alonzo Menifield kicks off tonight’s UFC Vegas 62 main card lineup.
Cirkunov (15-9 MMA) will enter the bout with hopes of snapping a three-fight losing skid. The Canadian suffered a submission loss to Wellington Turman in his most recent effort this past February.
Meanwhile, Alonzo Menifield (13-3 MMA) was last seen in action at June’s UFC Vegas 56 event, where he scored a TKO victory over Askar Mozharov.
Round one begins and Menifield comes out quickly with a flurry. Misha Cirkunov circles to this right and then leaps into the pocket with a jab. Alonzo loads up on the right hand. Another jab from the Canadian. He shoots for a takedown but Menifield defends. Cirkunov misses with a front kick. Alonzo Menifield connects with two huge punches and Misha is down and out. WOW!
