UFC Adds William Knight vs. Alonzo Menifield To December 4th Event

Light heavyweights William Knight and Alonzo Menifield will make one last appearance this year, being paired up for UFC’s December 4th card. The new matchup was first reported by Nolan King of MMA Junkie.

The fight is expected to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

The booking gives Menifield a chance to score his third victory of the year. He defeated Ed Herman in his last appearance, defeating him via unanimous decision in August.

Before then, he scored a first-round submission win over short-notice opponent Fabio Cherant.

Knight also defeated Cherant recently, stopping him in the first round with punches three months back. That performance put him back into the win column after taking a loss to Jung Da-un in April.

A booking between Knight and Menifield was attempted twice by the UFC early this year, although COVID-19 protocols made the fight fall apart in both instances.

Bantamweights Rob Font and Jose Aldo are expected to headline UFC’s December 4th show. Here is how the card looks now:
