Ulberg is coming into this bout on a three-fight winning streak and is seeking to add another knockout win to his record. The Kiwi secured a first-round KO victory at UFC 281 against Nicolae Negumereanu, which marked his 5th knockout finish inside the octagon. The New Zealand native holds a professional record of 7 wins and 1 loss.
Potieria is coming off an impressive TKO victory against Mauricio Rua, the former light heavyweight champion at UFC 283. However, the Ukranian had a rocky start to his UFC career after being signed on for his dominant win on Dana White’s Contender Series. But Potieria fell short at UFC 277 during his promotional debut against Nicolae Negumereanu via TKO and is ready to prove he can handle the tougher competition.
