It didn’t take long for UFC light heavyweight Carlos Ulberg to find his range on the feet and blitz Tafon Nchukwi for the finish.
Ulberg faced Nchukwi in the featured preliminary bout on the UFC Vegas 57 card. He was looking to earn a second-straight victory following a unanimous decision win over Fabio Cherant back at UFC 271.
Ulberg quickly pushed the pace on the feet and hit Nchukwi with a stiff jab that badly wobbled him. He followed it up with a series of hooks that put a quick stop to the fight in the first round.

Ulberg earned a shot in the UFC following a first-round knockout on Dana White‘s Contender Series in 2020. He lost his debut at UFC 259 against Kennedy Nzechukwu but has looked like a brand new fighter ever since.
UFC Vegas 57 is headlined by a lightweight matchup between rising contenders Arman Tsarukyan and Mateusz Gamrot.
