January 24, 2024
Alonzo Menifield will step in for Dominick Reyes and square off against Carlos Ulberg at UFC on ESPN 54.

The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the new light heavyweight booking on Tuesday. A reason for Reyes’ withdrawal was not given. UFC on ESPN 54 takes place on March 30 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and is headlined by a welterweight duel pitting Sean Brady against Vicente Luque.

Menifield is 4-0-1 in his last five Octagon appearances dating back to June 2022. Most recently, the 36-year-old Dana White's Contender Series alum scored a unanimous verdict against Dustin Jacoby at UFC 296 on Dec. 16.

Ulberg, meanwhile, has won five straight contests since dropping his promotional debut to Kennedy Nzechukwu at UFC 259. In his last outing, the City Kickboxing representative submitted Da Woon Jung in the third round of their clash at UFC 293.

Reyes has not competed since November 2022. The two-time light heavyweight title challenger has lost four straight UFC bouts.
