Light heavyweights Carlos Ulberg and Tafon Nchukwi have been added to UFC’s June 25th show, per Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie. The fight is joining a card that is expected to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Ulberg picked up his first UFC victory earlier this year, beating former LFA Light Heavyweight Champion Fabio Cherant on scorecards. He took his sole pro loss in his UFC debut last year, suffering a finish loss against Kennedy Nzechukwu.
Nchukwi’s UFC record is currently an even two wins and two losses since joining the promotion in late 2020. He was finished for the first time in his career two months back, suffering a defeat to undefeated prospect Azamat Murzakanov.
