Carlos Ulberg padded his bank account at Alonzo Menifield’s expense.

The City Kickboxing standout earned a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus for a 12-second technical knockout victory in a featured light heavyweight pairing at UFC on ESPN 56 at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis on Saturday. Ulberg took advantage of his opponent’s reckless approach, ultimately sealing his victory with a clean left hand during a furious exchange.

Elsewhere, Diego Ferreira garnered the card’s other $50,000 “Performance of the Night” award for his come-from-behind triumph against Mateusz Rebecki at lightweight. After getting dropped in the opening stanza, Ferreira gradually took control, ultimately finishing his Polish adversary with ground-and-pound at the 4:51 mark of Round 3.

Finally, Trey Waters and Billy Goff received “Fight of the Night” honors and $50,000 apiece for their welterweight slugfest on the preliminary card. While both combatants traded willingly throughout the bout, Waters’ proved to be the more impactful striker, ultimately earning a unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards.
