(Mon, April 17, 2017)– On April 15, 2017 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri Devin ‘Brown Bear’ Clark gained a convincing win over Missouri native Jake Collier. The victory was another demonstration as to why Clark is considered a promising top light heavyweight in the UFC. The match was part of the preliminary card of the UFC on FOX 24.

Clark dominated the fight with aggressiveness, landing nearly twice as many strikes during the contest than Collier (68 – 35). Clark dictated the action with four takedowns, controlling the top and subjecting Collier to a mauling ground assault.

Jake Collier began running out of steam during the final round of the scheduled three rounder. Collier brought a decent 10 – 4 professional MMA record into the cage but was simply unable to find an answer for Clark’s constant pressure.

Shortly after the fight Clark displayed confidence in his performance, but felt he did not push for a finish. Clark absorbed a few heavy standup strikes from Collier, but showed a solid chin by pushing through them with a smile on his face.

The ‘Brown Bear’ seemed pleased with the win but explained to reporters that next time he would strive to do more.

The judges scored what clearly appeared to be a one sided fight with a unanimous decision of 30-27, 30-27, and 30 26.

Clark plans to continue his journey towards the top of the light heavyweight division. He is willing to take on anyone along the way. With a victory over Collier the ‘Brown Bear’ is one step closer to becoming a UFC light heavyweight top ten contender.
