"We knew he was going to come forward," Ulberg said, via MMA Fighting. "So I just had to do what I had to do. He did catch me, that woke up and when you wake a lion up, he comes up. Anybody in that top 10, I’ll destroy anybody in my way."

Ulberg wasn’t listed in the light heavyweight rankings going into the fight. He and everyone else are looking up to champion Alex Pereira. Jiri Prochazka is the top contender for Pereira’s belt.

He earned an extra $50,000 for his quick finish, according to Sherdog.
