UFC 260 Prelims — Menifield vs. Cherant Preview

The UFC 260 Prelims is headlined by a feature fight between two UFC Men’s Light Heavyweight fighters, as Alonzo Menifield and Fabio Cherant square off.

Alonzo Menifield (9-2) is looking to get back on track in a big way after a serious stumble. He started his promising MMA career 9-0, which included wins in his first two fights in the UFC. Then in 2020, Menifield suffered back-to-back losses that have him at a crossroads. His first loss came when he went the distance for the first time in his career, losing a unanimous decision to Devin Clarke last summer. Then in September, Menifield was stopped for the first time in his fight with Ovince Saint Preux. While his career is far from over, he needs a win Saturday night badly before this slide puts him in a hole where he can’t climb out.

Fabio “Water Buffalo” Cherant (7-1) is making his UFC debut in this fight, but he should look familiar to fans of Dana White’s Contender Series. In 2019, he was a part of the Contender Series but he lost his bout against Aleksa Camur. Camur jumped immediately into a UFC deal, while Cherant went on to notch three wins in smaller promotions including Legacy Fighting Alliance. Cherant has submissions in five of his seven wins, so expect him to try to get Menifield to the ground if he can to start his UFC career with a bang!
