Menifield hopes that everyone who watches him recognizes that they have what it takes to fight whatever they are facing.

“I think fighting speaks in all languages,” Menifield said. “I think people can relate to what we are doing in the Octagon because, like everyone else, I’m struggling and dealing with misfortune in my life, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to give up fighting. I will not be denied, and people have to have that attitude and keep going, no matter what.”

What’s directly in front of Menifield is a chance to break into the UFC’s light heavyweight rankings. Menifield believes that UFC 250 is the perfect opportunity to make a statement and earn the respect he deserves.

“Given the COVID situation, I think there will be more eyes on UFC 250. This is my shot to display just how hungry I am, the talent I possess and why I’m going to take the division by storm,” Menifield said. “I want to be known as a top 205er and I think that this fight with Devin Clark is going to be an eye opener for everyone.”

“Whoever doubts me will see what I’m made of.”

You’re not going to want to miss Menifield battle Clark on the UFC 250 Early Prelims, which start at 6:30pm ET/3:30pm PT on ESPN, ESPN+ and UFC Fight Pass.
