Anthony Smith vs. Devin Clark

UFC Light Heavyweight Bout

Saturday, November 28th, 2020 - live from the UFC Apex Centre in Las Vegas

Anthony Smith

  • Age: 32
  • Nationality: USA
  • Record: 33-16-0
  • Height: 6ft 4"
  • Reach: 76"
  • Gym: Factory X
  • Notable Gym Members: Cody Stamann, Devonte Smith & James Krause
  • Current Streak: 2 losses
  • Wins by KO/TKO: 17
  • Wins by Submission: 14
  • Decision wins: 2

Anthony 'Lionheart' Smith is suffering from a two-fight winless streak, but it's hard to discredit him with the high-level opposition he's faced.

Since his previous winning streak back in 2018, Smith has gone 1-3. However, those losses were against Jon Jones, Glover Teixeira, and Aleksandar Rakic. To put this in perspective, one fight was a title opportunity, and both Glover and Rakic are title contenders.

With that said, we shouldn't neglect his sole-win because a submission win over Alexander Gustafsson is pretty darn impressive.

Devin Clark

  • Age: 32
  • Nationality: USA
  • Record: 12-4-0
  • Height: 6ft."
  • Reach: 75"
  • Gym: Jackson Wink MMA
  • Notable Gym Members: Jon Jones, Holly Holm & Garry Tonon
  • Current Streak: 2 wins
  • Wins by KO/TKO: 3
  • Wins by Submission: 1
  • Decision wins: 8

With a trajectory opposite to his opponent, Devin Clark is living the high-life on a two-fight win streak. The difference is - decision victories over Alonzo Menifield & Dequan Townsend do not warrant a shot at the former title challenger – in my opinion. But here we are, and the chips are stacked against Clark in terms of technical ability.

Clark does some stuff, and he does it well. Holding his opponents against the cage and imposing his strength has been a go-to. However, the level of competition is taking a step up, as the last encounter Clark had with a top-ten fighter saw him knocked out in the first round.

Fight Prediction

If you had not already guessed, I'll be siding with Anthony Smith this weekend. I believe he's a complete martial artist on a losing streak against the world's elite. Devin Clark does not fall into that category.

Josh Parisian vs. Parker Porter

UFC Heavyweight Bout

Saturday, November 28th, 2020 - live from the UFC Apex Centre in Las Vegas

Josh Parisian

  • Age: 31
  • Nationality: USA
  • Record: 13-3-1
  • Height: 6ft 4"
  • Reach: 79"
  • Gym: Team Scorpion Fight System
  • Notable Gym Members: Michael Chiesa, Austin Arnett & Daniel Spitz
  • Current Streak: 6 wins
  • Wins by KO/TKO: 10
  • Wins by Submission: 2
  • Decision wins: 1

Holding a six-fight win streak – all by knockout, Josh Parisian will officially make his long-awaited UFC debut, after two knockout successes on Dana White's Contender Series. Unable to secure a contract in the first attempt, Parisian returned with a first-round technical knockout, securing his place on the UFC roster.

The heavyweight contender basks a variety of offensive strikes, and for a 6ft' 4inch athlete he has been nimble on his feet.

Parker Porter

  • Age: 35
  • Nationality: USA
  • Record: 9-6-0
  • Height: 6ft.
  • Reach: 75"
  • Gym: Fighting Arts Academy MMA
  • Notable Gym Members: Nick Newell
  • Current Streak: 1 loss
  • Wins by KO/TKO: 4
  • Wins by Submission: 4
  • Decision wins: 2

Parker Porter will return to the UFC octagon after suffering a knockout loss just two months ago. At UFC 252, a large Chris Daukaus landed a beautiful knee inside the clinch, eventually resulting in a stoppage. Before the ending blow, Porter did show some positive signs, and in reality, he just got caught.

The quick turnaround is a worry for Porter, especially with 250 plus pounds being thrown around.

Fight Prediction

I would not be astonished if Porter was able to overcome the challenge this weekend, but you have to side with Parisian and his abilities.

Rather than taking that risk, it would be a complete shock to see this fight enter the later rounds. Both fighters rarely visit the judge's scorecard, and it is not difficult to anticipate a similar outcome in this contest.
