Devin Clark

Devin Clark (13-6) returns to the light heavyweight division almost four months after his heavyweight debut against William Knight. Despite winning against Knight via technical knockout in the third round, Clark needed to win another fight to remain in the UFC. The American knows how to last the distance, as evidenced by his nine fights that ended via decision. He will have his hands full against the heavy-handed Murzakanov, who has won eight of his 11 bouts via stoppage. The Brown Bear needs to outwit and outlast the Russian-born fighter to stand a chance in the bout and possibly pull the rug against his formidable yet untested foe.

Azamat Murzakanov

Heavy-handed Azamat Murzakanov (11-0) seeks to keep his unbeaten streak intact when he takes on Devin Clark. Despite his lack of height, Murzakanov compensates for this with his power. He can hurt you in many ways, whether he punches his way to his opponent’s chin or knocks someone out using his knee. In 11 fights, the Russian-born powerhouse has recorded eight stoppages, and both of his fights in the octagon were highlight reels. In his last bout against Tafon Nchukwi, Murzakanov landed a picture-perfect flying knee to his foe’s chin, who fell flat on the ground immediately after getting hit. His victory handed Murzakanov a USD50,000 bonus for one of the best performances of the UFC Fight Night 203. His striking will be in full showcase again as he tries to push his way into the light heavyweight rankings.
