The 31-year-old from Russia has only lost twice in his professional career. The loss in his last bout against Tim Elliot this past March was his second professional loss and his first loss in the UFC, having debuted in 2020. Ulanbekov is a former FNG and Gorilla promotions Flyweight champion. He is also a World champion, Eurasian champion, and European cup winner in combat sambo. His unanimous decision loss to Tim Elliot was greeted with mild controversy as 12 out of 17 media scorers gave it to Ulanbekov.

Nate is a very tough opponent, he’s very strong, but we already have a blueprint on how to beat him. My teammate Umar, we have a tape on him how to do it exactly. We have a gameplan. I’m just going to do what my teammate did and get my hand raised.

Nate ‘Mayhem’ Maness has won two Performance of the Night awards since joining UFC in 2020. In his fight against Tony Gravely in April 2021, Mayhem rose from a first-round knockdown to win the bout via TKO in round two for his second Performance of the Night award. Maness has won 3 titles in different weight classes, including at Featherweight and Lightweight in his professional career. In his bout last June, he lost via unanimous decision to Umar Nurmagomedov. He is 4-1 in his last five bouts. Maness will be fighting at Flyweight for the first time in his career. His last fights have been at Bantamweight.

If this is the first time he’s making flyweight, and I’m not sure if he is, this is a different division. First of all, his first fight is going to be a weight cut. If he gets through that fight and recovers well, good for him. The second fight is going to be me standing across the octagon looking him right in the face, in his eyes.
