SAN DIEGO – Azamat Murzakanov doesn’t feel too threatened by Devin Clark.
Murzakanov (11-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) meets Clark (13-6 MMA, 7-6 UFC) on Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 41 main card at Pechanga Arena in San Diego. The card airs on ESPN and streams on ESPN+.
Clark has fought tough competition throughout his UFC tenure, picking up solid wins over the likes of Alonzo Menifield and William Knight in his most recent outing at heavyweight. But Murzakanov’s opinion of Clark isn’t a strong one.
“To be honest with you, I watched a couple of his fights and I didn’t see anything impressive,” Murzakanov said Wednesday at UFC on ESPN 41 media day. “Nothing impressed me from his performance.”
The undefeated light heavyweight has finished his past three opponents, including a flying knee knockout of Tafon Nchukwi in his UFC debut. He expects another stoppage win against Clark.
“I think the fight is not going to go to a decision,” Murzakanov said. “This is what I think.
“I don’t think about my record as much as I think more about not disappointing my fanbase, my team and my coaches.”
