Clark has been suspended a possible six months by the Nevada Athletic Commission pending medical clearance of a left orbital fracture, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
It was reported earlier that Clark was potentially dealing with a facial fracture, but word from the commission makes it official. He took several big shots early in the fight, but was able to persevere and take a decision from Alonzo Menifield. The fact he was dealing with a potentially serious fracture makes the victory all the more impressive, especially considering Clark's grinding, wrestling-based approach.

Clark sustained a fractured orbital bone during Saturday's win over Alonzo Menifield at UFC 250, Aaron Bronsteter of TSN.ca reports.
ANALYSIS
The 30-year-old put in a strong performance as an underdog and defeated Menifield via unanimous decision, but he didn't escape unscathed. Clark doesn't have an official recovery timeline, but he figures to require a multi-week recovery period before potentially returning to the Octagon.
Big win as underdog

Clark defeated Alonzo Menifield via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-29, 29-28) at UFC 250 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was the most impressive effort of Clark's brief UFC run. It also didn't start well. Clark was on the receiving end of plenty of power shots from Menifield in the opening frame. It got a bit dicey at times, but he managed to survive and take control of the final two rounds after Menifield's gas tank quickly hit empty. Clark isn't blessed with any elite physical traits but he's tough and doesn't beat himself inside the Octagon. He can win fights if his opposition doesn't show up ready to go for 15 minutes. Clark improves to 6-4 in his first ten UFC bouts.

Clark will take on ALonzo Menifield in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC 250 on June 6, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
This was a bout originally scheduled for May 2 in Oklahoma City, but that turned out to be one of many events cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. CLark's career has been a mixed bag to date, as he's alternated wins and losses in each of his last six fights. He'll enter as roughly a (+180) betting underdog against Menifield, who is 2-0 under the UFC banner. Menifield has gotten by with his striking so far, collecting two first-round stoppages. Clark is much more dependent on his wrestling game, averaging 3.03 takedowns per 15 minutes of fight time.

Clark will face Alonzo Menifield in a light heavyweight bout at UFC Oklahoma City on May 2, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Clark's last fight came only a few weeks ago at Rio Rancho on Feb. 15, as he defeated Dequan Townsend via unanimous decision. "Brown Bear" hasn't picked up consecutive victories since 2017 and will look to buck that trend in Oklahoma City. Menifield is 9-0 as a professional and 2-0 in UFC, with his last victory coming over Paul Craig via KO (punches) at Fight Night in late June.

Clark defeated Dequan Townsend via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-26, 30-26) at UFC Rio Rancho on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Clark spent the majority of the first round pressing for the takedown in the clinch position, but aside from a few knees, neither fighter was able to register much damage of note. The referee finally separated the two, and once they were back in the center, Clark exploded with another takedown attempt that took Townsend to the mat and allowed him to eventually advanced to full mount. Clark took advantage with a hard elbow and a few body shots before hearing the bell. In the second round, Townsend starting winding up for big shots, but Clark stayed out of dodge and landed another takedown. He stayed in side control for the rest of the frame. Entering the third round ahead on the scorecards, it was more of the same for Clark. Townsend knew he had to be aggressive, but that again left the door open for a Clark takedown, where he continued to rack up ground strikes. Clark won't gain many style points for this, but the wrestling-based approach should continue to bring him success against the middle tier of the division.
