DEVIN CLARK VS MARCIN PRACHNIO LOWDOWN
Devin Clark (14-8) is desperate to get a streak going. He has failed to string more than two wins together since joining the UFC in 2016. He has only won twice in his last six. The first of these was a brilliant knockout over William Knight (2022). He then got TKO’d himself by Azamat Murzakanov (2022) and bounced back with an impressive unanimous decision over Da Un Jung. However, he was stopped in his tracks again, this time getting submitted by Kennedy Nzechukwu (2023) at UFC 288.
Marcin Prachnio (16-7) has found it even tougher in the light heavyweight division. He got knocked out in his first three UFC fights and then somehow pulled off a unanimous decision win over Khalil Rountree Jr. He has gone 2-2 since and also has a win over William Knight (2023). He was then handed Vitor Petrino (2023) at UFC 290 after that unanimous decision but got submitted for fall to 3-5 in the UFC.
DEVIN CLARK VS MARCIN PRACHNIO PREDICTION
There are a queue of killers waiting for the light heavyweight title. These two are not in line and are more focused on impressing the UFC brass enough to stay on the roster.
Clark is a very powerful wrestler, but we can see him calling upon his striking here as Prachnio has been knocked out four times. His striking has improved, so we can certainly see him hunt the knockout.
Prachnio will welcome that strategy as he is a striker by trade and will back his technique and power to get the better of the exchanges. We have seen him pull off the upset, just ask Rountree, but Clark has the power to crack the damaged chin and the wrestling to call upon if required
Prediction: Clark via KO/TKO
Value Bet: Prachnio to win
