UFC St. Louis: Carlos Ulberg Delivers Stunning 12-Second KO!

"Ulberg ends the fight in just 12 seconds!"

At this weekend’s UFC event in St. Louis, Carlos Ulberg needed a mere 12 seconds to finish Alonzo Menifield, adding a sensational knockout to his growing list of achievements in the light heavyweight division.

The Lightning-Fast Knockout

The match started with Menifield charging aggressively towards Ulberg, attempting to overwhelm him from the get-go. Although Menifield managed to land a hit, the New Zealander adeptly avoided significant damage and quickly retaliated with a flurry of his own punches.

After dodging Menifield’s assault, Ulberg connected with a series of decisive blows. Menifield stumbled briefly but managed to stand up, only to be swiftly knocked down again by a powerful left hook followed by a right from Ulberg, prompting the referee to intervene and stop the fight.

Historical Context

With this victory, Ulberg’s 12-second knockout becomes the third-fastest finish in the history of UFC’s light heavyweight category. In his post-fight interview, Ulberg’s confidence was palpable. “We knew he was going to charge at me,” Ulberg said. “He hit me, woke the lion, and when you wake the lion, he strikes. Everyone in the top 10, I’m ready to smash through.”

Ulberg’s Rising Star

Now boasting six consecutive wins, with only one going to a decision, Ulberg’s track record in the UFC is impressive, especially considering that his only loss came during his debut against Kennedy Nzechukwu. This dominant performance in St. Louis makes a compelling case for Ulberg facing a ranked opponent in his next bout.
