Alonzo Menifield has no interest in ever seeing the scorecards.

The recent Contender Series signee improved to 2-0 inside the Octagon with another first-round finish, needing a little more than three minutes to dust Paul Craig in the main card opener of UFC Minneapolis on Saturday.

Overall, it was the fourth straight first-round finish for Menifield. He improved to 9-0 with all of his wins coming by way of knockout or submission.

Craig (11-4), who has developed a reputation for comebacks, was given no chance to work another miracle as Menifield made him pay for a stray spinning kick. The attack was blocked and Menifield pushed Craig down before hammering away with ground-and-pound to end the fight 3:19 into round one.
