Devin Clark will look to bounce another rising contender from the ranks of the unbeaten.
Clark (13-6 MMA, 7-6 UFC) is set to take on Azamat Murzakanov (11-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in a light heavyweight bout Aug. 13 at UFC Fight Night, which doesn’t yet have a publicly known venue or location.
Two people with knowledge of the booking confirmed the matchup to MMA Junkie on Tuesday but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. Hosheh MMA was the first to report the news.
Winner of three of his past five, Clark was able to snap a two-fight losing skid when he finished William Knight in a heavyweight bout last month at UFC on ESPN 34.
Unbeaten Murzakanov punched his ticket to the UFC with a finish on Dana White’s Contender Series in August 2021. He followed that up with an impressive flying-knee knockout of Tafon Nchukwi in his promotional debut in March at UFC Fight Night 203.
With the addition, the Aug. 13 lineup includes:
Bruno Silva vs. Gerald Meerschaert
Devin Clark vs. Azamat Murzakanov
