UFC on ESPN+ 7 Handicapping

Before I get started with the write-up for UFC on ESPN+ 7, I want to make mention that I am not a fan of this card.  For starters, there are not a lot of fights on this card that hold any value.  Many of the fights, the favorite is between -250 and -300, and that just isn't very smart betting.  That being said, we did find one that we do like.

The fight that we are looking at as our feature fight for UFC on ESPN+ 7 is between Devin Clark and Ivan Shtyrkov.  The fight will take place in the UFC's Light-Heavyweight Division and will consist of three-five minute rounds. 

Devin Clark enters this fight with a record of 9-3 overall and is 3-3 in the UFC.  Clark is a Junior College National Wrestling Champion, who was found on Dana White's YouTube special, Looking For A Fight.  There are a few things that drive me nuts about Clark. 

First and foremost, his cardio is absolutely terrible!  The guys a one round fighter and it's all downhill from there. Second, he is very small for the Light-Heavyweight Division.  He is undersized and that isn't good when you are fighting some guys that could legitimately fight in the Heavyweight Division.  Third and probably most important, he gets hit a lot!  Clark puts himself in bad spots and sort of fights with his hands at his sides. 

Ivan Shtyrkov will be making his UFC debut on Saturday and fighting in front of his home crowd in Russia. He is undefeated at 16-0-1 and has some major household names on his resume including Thiago Santos, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Ricco Rodriguez, Fabio Maldonado, Rodney Wallace and Phil De Fries.  He is the real deal and to make matters look even better, he is only 30-years old!

Very rarely do you ever see me give out someone who is making their UFC debut but in this spot, its hard to not like Shtyrkov.  He is making the debut in his mother country, he is very experienced and has beaten the who's who of names that have competed in the UFC.  I think he will put his big bear claws on Clark and end up getting the finish in this fight.
