Fabio Cherant will be making his UFC debut on short notice against Alonzo Menifield after Alonzo’s original opponent, William Knight, had to be removed from the card due to COVID-19 protocols.

Cherant is very young in his professional MMA career, having made his debut in just 2018. But the ‘Water Buffalo” has a great submission game, with 4 of his 5 submission victories coming in the very first round. Cherant has an anaconda choke on his record as well as a couple guillotines and rear naked chokes.

Cherant is a veteran of both the LFA and CES promotions and his lone loss came on the 2019 season of the Contender Series against Aleksa Camur. It is also worth noting that Cherant has fought some very inexperienced, arguably low level opponents thus far in his career so it will be a big step up in competition for his debut at UFC 260.
