After an opponent fallout this past weekend at UFC St. Petersburg, the promotion wasted no time re-booking light heavyweight Devin Clark (9-3). "Brown Bear" will square off with Serbia's Darko Stosic (13-1) June1 at UFC Fight Night 152 in Stockholm, sources tell FloCombat.
Clark was originally scheduled to face off against top Russian light heavyweight Ivan Shtyrkov. Shortly after both fights weighed in, Shytrkov withdrew from the bout, citing health issues that landed him in the hospital.
Going 3-2 over his last five fights, Clark will look to get back in the win column following a knockout loss to Aleksandar Rakic at UFC 231 in December.
His opponent, top up-and-comer Darko Stosic, will attempt to ride the momentum from his UFC debut victory in July.
Prior to signing with the UFC last year, Stosic was highly regarded by MMA experts as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the Europe Balkans region. His debut was nothing short of impressive, as he dismantled Jeremy Kimball in the first round, winning by TKO.
