Mozharov got big attention on himself for an odd reason coming into UFC Fight Night 207. There were multiple changes to his record before stepping into the octagon for his debut, and Menifield said he was fired up by the fact he couldn’t get a good read on his opponent.
“The dude has three records,” Menifield said in his post-fight interview with Paul Felder. “It pissed me off and it just made me furious.”
