Falls as big favorite
Light HeavyweightUFC
February 10, 2024
Clark lost to Marcin Prachnio via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Not great. Entering as a -225 favorite and facing an opponent that has certainly had his fair share of struggles, Clark could get absolutely nothing going offensively. Widely expected to have a wrestling advantage, Devin attempted two takedowns, both of which failed. That allowed Prachnio to pull way ahead in the striking exchanges between the two, effectively eliminating any chance Clark may have had of winning a decision. Now 33 years of age, the North Dakota native is sporting a woeful 2-5 record in his past seven bouts, it's certainly possible the UFC could decide to move on.

Fades following quick start

Clark lost to Kennedy Nzechukwu via technical submission (guillotine choke) at 2:28 of Round 2 at UFC 288 on Saturday in Newark, New Jersey.
ANALYSIS
Clark is going to be kicking himself for coming up short in a fight in which he appeared to have a legitimate chance to win. He pinned Nzechukwu to the fence midway through Round 1 and unloaded with everything but the kitchen sink, but was unable to get Kennedy out of there. As a result, Clark was exhausted and was never able to recover. He was lucky to survive an onslaught from his opponent late in the frame before eventually being choked out midway through Round 2. Now 33 years old and sporting a .500 record over the course of 16 UFC bouts, Clark is the very definition of roster depth.

Strong effort as underdog
Light HeavyweightUFC
February 5, 2023
Clark defeated Da Un Jung via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Long on potential and short on consistent performance, Clark put forth a complete effort in this one. Entering as a surprising +230 underdog, Clark leaned heavily on his wrestling game, connecting on 3-of-11 takedown attempts. He also landed more than twice as many total strikes as Jung, finishing with a 96-43 edge. Clark's power is limited, but he's an underrated athlete and has been in the octagon with a bunch of high-level opponents (Jan Blachowicz, Anthony Smith, Ryan Spann, Aleksandar Rakic). That said, even with this win, Clark is just 2-3 in his past five fights dating back to November 2020, so he needs to keep winning.
Booked against Da Un Jung
Light HeavyweightUFC
October 20, 2022
Clark will take on Da Un Jung in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC Seoul on Feb. 4, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Clark has hit a rough patch of late, dropping three of his last four fights and getting finished in two of them. He'll now take on a fighter in Jung who is coming off a KO loss but is 4-1-1 with the company overall. Clark is most successful when he executes a wrestling-based game plan, but that may be difficult against Jung considering he sports a highly-commendable takedown defense of 88 percent. Jung also has the edge in striking volume, plus will take four-inch height and three-inch reach advantages into the Octagon.
Not competitive in San Diego

August 13, 2022
Clark lost to Azamat Murzakanov via TKO (punches) at 1:18 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 41 on Saturday in San Diego.
ANALYSIS
Clark earned his first stoppage win with the UFC with a knockout win over William Knight this past April, but he was right back to his inconsistent ways in this one, showing nothing in a loss to the underrated Murzakanov. Clark was sub-par in Round 1 and dreadful in Round 2 before a Murzaknov body shot dropped him and led to the stoppage in Round 3. Clark has seemingly always had potential, but it has simply never translated. Now 32 years of age and sporting a 1-3 record in his past four fights dating back to November 2020, there's a non-zero chance the UFC could decide to cut bait here.
