Devin Clark vs. William Knight Prediction and Odds for UFC on ESPN 34

The new UFC from exciting pay-per-view, UFC 273, is now returning to the APEX facility for a Fight Night pass which features a battle between two rookie weightlifters in the main event.

I’m focusing on the heavyweight fight that is the premiere card fight for this bet preview. Two typical light heavyweights move to heavyweights to fight on ESPN with William Knight squared off with Devin Clark.

Before we break down where the bet value lies, let’s check out the odds for this match from WynnBET Sportsbook:

2022 UFC record: 15-15 (+2.61 units)

money line:

Total: 2.5 (above -165 / below +140)

Weight class is very important to bet here. Knight missed his 12-pound light heavyweight last time, a UFC record, coming in at 218 pounds. While his fight went on as planned (he lost), Knight proved difficult for him to get down to 205. Knight mentioned after dropping the weight exactly that and given that he fought that fight in such a short time, it was very difficult for him to make it onto the scales.

Now, he’s fighting in the weight class he’s fought in before and closer to walking about weight. Meanwhile, Clark usually fights in Light Heavyweight and has experience under Middleweight weight class. Now, he is making the jump to heavyweight for this match.

I see an advantage here to support Knight as an underdog in a better weight class for him. Clarke may have more UFC fights on his ledger, but this is the first time he’s been at heavyweight. Knight has been able to push fights against the cage before and control the grappling exchanges, if he was able to deliver this to the ground I would expect the “Knightmare” to perform rounds easily.

Slightly compact, Knight stands at 5’10” but boasts a 73″ reach, and this rivalry suits him well considering Clark is 6’0″ and has a reach of 75″. For example, Knight’s last game against Maxim Grishin, who is 6’3″ with a reach of 78.” I think this is the perfect storm to beat the underdog rider at a weight that might be more comfortable in the long run.

Lynn: Knight +145
