In the co-main event of UFC Fight Night, Smith vs Spann, Ion Cutelaba takes on Devin Clark in an exciting light heavyweight bout.
Every time Ion Cutelaba enters the octagon he puts on a show for the fans. However, Cutelaba has been on the decline as he has lost three of his last five fights.
Ion Cutelaba lost to Glover Teixeira by submission, which is not a bad loss considering the fact that Teixeira is one step closer to becoming the UFC light heavyweight champion now. His first loss to Magomed Ankalaev was controversial. But, Cutelaba got KOed in the rematch against Ankalaev.
However, his performance in the last fight against David Jacoby was certainly impressive. Even though that fight ended in a draw there are a lot of positives for Cuetlaba coming out of that fight.
On the other hand, this will be a tough matchup for Devin Calrk who is coming off a submission loss against Anthony Smith. Clark has looked promising in his UFC journey so far but he has lost to the ranked opponents such as Anthony Smith, Jan Blachowicz, and Ryan Spann.
So will it be an easy night for The Hulk at UFC Vegas 37? Or Will Devin Clark will bounce back from the submission loss in his last fight?
