Carlos Ulberg is for real.

The New Zealander opened UFC 281 with a stunning first-round knockout of Nicolae Negumereanu (13-2), clipping him behind the ear with a left hand to send Negumereanu crashing to the mat. Ulberg (6-1) followed up with two more hard punches to force the stoppage.

Ulberg looked like he was on his way to winning Round 1 before the finish as he controlled the distance and landed clean jabs on the aggressive Negumereanu. Ulberg countered Negumereanu’s strike and followed it up with another powerful jab that ended the sequence.

With the win, Ulberg has now won three straight fights since losing in his UFC debut in March 2021. On Saturday’s card, Ulberg will be one of four City Kickboxing fights. This roster also includes Israel Adesanya (UFC middleweight champion) and the event headliner.

Negumereanu sees a four-fight win streak snapped, a streak that was second-longest in the UFC light heavyweight division behind Magomed Ankalaev (9). His UFC record falls to 4-2.
