Can't defend takedown in loss
Light HeavyweightUFC
September 18, 2021
Clark lost to Ion Cutelaba via unanimous decision (26-30, 26-29, 27-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Clark's takedown defense had always been strong throughout his UFC run, but all that went out the window on Saturday and he was routed as a result. He allowed Cutelaba to connect on 8-of-12 attempts. For comparison's sake, Clark was taken down just three times in his first 11 fights with the company. You're almost certain to come up short if you find yourself on the mat that often, and that's exactly the situation Clark found himself in here. A dozen fights into Clark's UFC run, it's safe to say this is what he is. His record with the company is .500 (6-6) and there is no real reason to expect him to go on any sort of run moving forward.

Clark's scheduled opponent for the UFC's May 1 event, Ion Cutelaba, announced Tuesday via social media that Clark withdrew from their upcoming light heavyweight bout due to an undisclosed reason, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Cutelaba noted that he'll still be included on the May 1 card, as the UFC intends to find a short-notice replacement for Clark. Provided Clark isn't withdrawing due to a major injury, he should return to the Octagon at some point within the next few months.
Slated to fight in May

February 17, 2021
Clark will take on Ion Cutelaba in a light heavyweight matchup at a UFC event scheduled for May 1, reports.
Clark will attempt to return to the win column in May after losing to Anthony Smith via submission (triangle choke) at UFC on ESPN 18 in late November. He had won back-to-back fights prior to his loss to Smith but was unable to compete after going to the ground in November. He'll take on Cutelaba, who most recently lost to Magomed Ankalaev via KO (punches) at UFC 254 in October to extend his losing streak to three. The two fighters are even in reach, but Cutelaba has a slim height advantage.
Grappling deficiencies exposed

November 28, 2020
Clark lost to Anthony Smith via submission (triangle choke) at 2:34 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 18 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Clark rushed in early and landed with a right, but the recklessness allowed Smith to get the takedown. Clark was able to reverse position, however, but Smith went to work from his back. He threw up the triangle to the surprise of Clark, and he was tapping shortly thereafter. Clark had recorded back-to-back wins entering this fight, but fell short against arguably his best test to date. While he can be successful with his wrestling, that won't do him much good when he goes to the ground with a far superior grappler. On the bright side, there's still plenty of room for the 30-year-old to work out these kinks at Jackson-Wink MMA.
