Ion Cutelaba vs. Devin Clark Among Two Bouts Booked For September 18th UFC Card

A light heavyweight bout between Ion Cutelaba and Devin Clark is among two new matchups that have recently been added to UFC’s September 18th card.

The fight, which was first reported by MMA DNA, joins a card that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.

Cutelaba will be looking for his first win since 2019. The light heavyweight vet took two losses last year, facing Magomed Ankalaev twice in the same year.

His most recent fight produced an unsatisfying result for both him as his opponent Dustin Jacoby in May, as they fought to a split draw.

Clark lost his first UFC main event appearance in his last appearance, getting submitted via triangle choke within a round by veteran Anthony Smith. Clark walked into the fight on a two-fight win streak that he developed earlier in the year.

Nchukwi Returns Following First Loss Against Rodriguez

Another pair of light heavyweights will appear on the card, as Tafon Nchukwi will return to face Mike Rodriguez. The fight was first confirmed last week by Nolan King of MMA Junkie.

Nchukwi is returning after taking his first pro loss last month to Jun Yong Park. The loss came after scoring five wins as a pro, including his UFC debut victory over Jamie Pickett.

Rodriguez enters the bout with the goal of avoiding falling into a three-fight losing streak. He has been submitted in his past two bouts, being stopped by Ed Herman and Danilo Marques recently.
