RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Menifield was signed by the UFC following a knockout victory over Dashawn Boatwright at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series, MMAFighting.com reports.
Menifield has most recently been battling in the Legacy Fighting Alliance, boasting an undefeated record. However, Tuesday's event allowed the light heavyweight to perform in front of UFC president Dana White and he took advantage of the opportunity. Menifield made quick work of his opponent, Dashawn Boatwright, knocking out the fellow fighter within eight seconds after the start of round one. That earned him a contract with the UFC, though it's unclear when Menifield will take to the Octagon for his debut.
