Taps to Ryan Spann
Light HeavyweightUFC
October 12, 2019
Clark lost to Ryan Spann via submission (Guillotine Choke) at 2:01 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Tampa.
ANALYSIS
It's a disappointing result for Clark after he had a fairly strong Round 1. Neither man did a whole lot in the striking department, but Clark scored on both of his takedown attempts. He was less successful in the second frame. Clark ate a few more punches and was out-muscled in an exchange in tight that led to the guillotine that ended the bout. Clark has now alternated wins and losses in his past six bouts dating back to April 2017.

Next fight in October
Light HeavyweightUFC
August 6, 2019
Clark will take on Ryan Spann in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC on ESPN+ 19 on Oct. 12, Nolan King and Mike Bohn of MMAJunkie.com report.
ANALYSIS
Clark sports a 4-3 record with the UFC with wins in two of his last three fights. He'll enter with height and reach disadvantages against Spann, which he'll presumably look to negate by using his wrestling. Clark averages 2.92 takedowns per 15 minutes of fight time, and while Spann's takedown defense mark doesn't mean much over a two-fight sample size, it's worth noting that Luis Henrique did get him to the mat four times in his UFC debut last September. Clark is a respectable striker -- as shown by his positive striking differential in his first seven fights -- but it may be difficult to get the hands going when facing such a significant size disadvantage.
Picks up hard-fought win
Light HeavyweightUFC
June 1, 2019
Clark defeated Darko Stosic via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night 153 in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Clark opened round one by wobbling his opponent with a stiff jab but chose to go back to his wrestling base even when it was clear he was having more success on the feet. This led to a lot of stalemate positions with the stronger Stosic, who showed dangerous power throughout the fight. Clark has failed to impress after looking like a quality prospect coming into the organization, but has enough power, athleticism and wrestling ability to surprise us yet. He moves to 10-4 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.
Booked in Stockholm
Light HeavyweightUFC
May 19, 2019
Clark will take on Darko Stosic in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC Stockholm on June 1, Nolan King of Flocombat reports.
ANALYSIS
Clark is an even 3-3 in the UFC, but missed out on a chance to bring his record over the .500 mark when a bout scheduled against Ivan Shtrykov at UFC St. Petersburg was called off. UFC brass wasted little time in getting "Brown Bear" a new opponent, now scheduling him for a 27-year-old Serbian prospect that won his promotional debut against Jeremy Kimball via first-round TKO. Stosic has earned eight of his 13 wins by way of knockout, so Clark will need to control this fight with his wrestling if he hopes to have success. He's been knocked out twice in three UFC losses, recording just one total takedown over the course of those fights.

Stopped by Rakic at UFC 231
Light HeavyweightUFC
December 8, 2018
Clark lost to Aleksandar Rakic via TKO (strikes) at 4:05 of Round 1 at UFC 231 on Saturday in Toronto.
ANALYSIS
Clark was all but handed a free victory from incompetent referee Brian Beauchamp, but he was unable to take advantage. During an exchange along the fence, Clark blasted Rakic with at least a half dozen illegal knees to the face. Rakic's hands were clearly on the mat (that's a foul under the old or new rules), but Beauchamp said nothing and Clark continued to smash him. He was unable to earn the stoppage and found himself getting pummeled just seconds later after Rakic landed a back fist. Clark entered as the biggest underdog on the card (+435), but the result was disappointing for the 30-year-old given the circumstances prior to the stoppage.
