ANALYSIS

Azamat Murzakanov vs Devin Clark Prediction: Can Murzakanov Make a Statement at UFC Fight Night?

In what should very well be the featured bout on the main card, Russia's own Azamat Murzakanov looks to make it a perfect 2-0 into his Octagon start, taking on perennial UFC journeyman Devin "Brown Bear" Clark. Let's dive into my prediction, pick, and odds for Murzakanov vs Clark.

Azamat Murzakanov vs Devin Clark Prediction

Let's start with the pros and cons of both competitors. Azamat is at the not-so-ripe age of 33, but what he lacks in youthful vitality he more than makes up for with his experience form factor and insane athletic endeavors, already possessing multiple combat Sambo world championships and a perfect 11-0 record heading into the fray. 

Out of all 11 of his victories, nine have ended inside the distance of Azmat. His cardio seems to be his biggest hindrance, visibly slowing down in some fights where he cannot finish his opponent early in the first round, although his power is known to stay with him regardless as evidenced by his third-round stoppage over Tafon Nchuwki his last time around. On the other side of the coin, we have  Devin Clark, a blue-collar marauding wrestling behemoth, a man that has been with the promotion since 2016 and beyond. 

While his entries into his takedowns are ferocious, he is messy and sloppy when it comes to successfully holding his opponent down and subsequently pays for it down the stretch more often than not. Although I would rate his pain tolerance as very high, his overall durability is not, being finished in a multitude of contests throughout his UFC career. Now when it's all said and done who prevails and who gets relegated back to the prelims? While history shows that the man with engrained UFC experience tends to outperform the newcoming agent, I think the tenured Devin Clark is going to be in for a long night against Azamat Murzakanov. 

The fact of the matter is Azmat is a stylistic nightmare for Clark in every conceivable way imaginable. From the anti-wrestling due to his Sambo background to his more invaluable power-punching combinations expect Murzakanov to stuff the early onslaught of Devin Clark quite easily before ultimately putting him away sometime in the very first round.
