Nzechukwu vs Clark Prediction

Kennedy Nzechukwu has seemingly returned to form after a minor rough patch. The "African Savage" has tallied back-to-back victories over Karl Roberson and Ion Cutelaba, defeating both men by TKO. Nzechukwu has now knocked out four of his last six opponents.

Devin Clark, on the other hand, hasn't found much consistency lately. He's lost three of his last five fights, including a TKO loss to Azamat Murzakanov in his return to the light heavyweight division. Clark did follow up that loss with a unanimous decision win over Da Un Jung, leaving time to tell if he can build on that momentum.

I like Nzechukwu a lot in this fight. For starters, he has the physical advantages, standing five inches taller with a reach that's eight inches longer than Clark. Nzechukwu has also displayed impressive finishing abilities during his UFC run and now gets to face Clark, who has been finished six times — including thrice by KO/TKO.

With Clark being as inconsistent as he is, I feel more comfortable backing Nzechukwu this weekend.

Winner: Kennedy Nzechukwu
