Paul Craig, Alonzo Menifield to Clash at UFC on ESPN 3 in Minneapolis

By Tristen Critchfield Apr 29, 2019

A light heavyweight bout pitting Paul Craig against Alonzo Menifield has been added to the UFC on ESPN 3 lineup.

Promotion officials recently announced the booking. UFC on ESPN 3 takes place at the Target Center in Minneapolis on June 29 and is headlined by a rematch between Tyron Woodley and Robbie Lawler. The card will air on ESPN following prelims on ESPN+.

Craig has won two of his last three Octagon appearances and is coming off a third-round submission of Kennedy Nzechukwu at UFC on ESPN 2 on Marc 30. “Bearjew” finished 10 of his 11 professional victories via tapout overall.

Menifield received a UFC contract after earning a pair of victories on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. The 31-year-old Dallas resident had a successful Octagon debut, as he knocked out Vinicius Moreira in the opening stanza at UFC Brooklyn on Jan. 19 to improve his career mark to 8-0. All of Menifield’s victories have come inside of two rounds.
