UFC knockout king Lewis (27-12, fighting out of Houston, Texas) plans to add to his impressive record number of 14 knockouts in the promotion with another vintage performance. Among the most popular athletes on the roster, Lewis has entertained fans with highlight-reel finishes of Curtis Blaydes, Alexander Volkov and Marcos Rogerio de Lima. He now intends to add a win over Nascimento to his resume and break back into the Top 10.

Nascimento (11-1, fighting out of Belo Horizonte, Brazil) aims to make the most of the biggest opportunity of his MMA career. A signee from season three of Dana White’s Contender Series, he is currently riding a three-fight win streak, which consists of victories over Tanner Boser, Ilir Latifi and Don’Tale Mayes. Nascimento now seeks to start off his 2024 campaign with a career-defining showcase over Lewis.

Menifield (15-3-1, fighting out of Dallas, Texas) has his sights set on securing another dramatic victory. He is currently on a five-fight unbeaten streak, the longest of his UFC career, which includes wins over Dustin Jacoby, Jimmy Crute and Misha Cirkunov. Menifield now plans to defend his spot in the rankings against Ulberg and turn his attention towards a Top 10 matchup.

Ulberg (10-1, fighting out of Auckland, New Zealand) looks to make a statement in his first UFC co-main event. The record holder for the most strikes landed per minute in UFC light heavyweight history, Ulberg has finished his last four victories in a row, including those over Da-un Jung, Ihor Potieria and Nicolae Negumereanu. The former professional kickboxer now plans on delivering another bonus-earning performance.
