Light heavyweight competitor Devin Clark earned his second UFC win when he defeated Jake Collier by decision at UFC On Fox 24.
Clark may have gotten his second win in the UFC, but he isn’t happy with how he got the victory.
“I was happy, but a little disappointed, too,” Clark said after the event. “I didn’t get the finish, and I could have done more. Next time, I’m going to strive to do more.”
It was the wrestling game that proved to be the difference in the fight, but that’s because Clark doesn’t like getting hit.
“I kept moving forward, quite a bit more than I usually do, and I overcame some things,” Clark said. “He also hit me pretty good a few times, and I was able to walk right through them, and they didn’t faze me. First time I’ve ever smiled at punches like that. I don’t like getting hit, so it’s like, ‘Oh crap, I’m taking shots.’ It’s just like you’re in a jet fighter. ‘Oh, we’re taking fire,’ so you have to do something. You better react next time. Especially at 205 (pounds), you get knocked out with one punch, so you don’t want to just take punches all day.”
The lone loss that Clark has suffered under the UFC banner came to Alex Nicholson at UFC Fight Night 91 in the fighter's UFC debut.
UFC President Dana White was the person who first discovered Clark, which was a part of the “Dana White’s Lookin’ For A Fight” reality program.
