Ulberg comes from way of New Zealand and is a part of City Kickboxing – along with Israel Adesanya and Kai Cara France.
Ulberg was booked to meet another heavy hitter in Tafon Nchukwi.
The two traded low kicks early in round 1. Following the exchange Ulberg jabbed Nchukwi and noticed him start to lose consciousness. Upon this, he unleashed a flurry of lefts and rights that ultimately rendered Nchukwi passed out on the floor.

This victory makes Ulberg 2-1 inside the UFC. Nchukwi drops to 2-3 in the UFC and his future is unsafe in the promotion.
