UFC Fight Night: Smith vs Clark Results

Live results, winner interviews, and more from UFC Vegas 15

UFC continues its run of events in Las Vegas when former UFC light heavyweight title challenger and No. 6 ranked Anthony Smith steps in on short notice to take on Devin Clark.
 
Former light heavyweight title challenger Smith (33-16, fighting out of Omaha, Neb.) proves that he will compete against anyone, anywhere, at any time by stepping in on short notice against rising prospect Clark. A longtime middleweight standout with 30 of his 33 wins coming by finish, Smith quickly rose up the light heavyweight ranks with defining stoppages over Rashad Evans, Mauricio Rua and Volkan Oezdemir. He now seeks to secure his first victory of 2020 with a vintage performance.
 
Clark (12-4, fighting out of Sioux Falls, S.D.) looks to make 2020 his most successful year to date by clinching his third victory against the toughest opponent of his career. A product of the first season of Dana White: Looking for a Fight, Clark has found his footing in the UFC with back-to-back wins over Dequan Townsend and Alonzo Menifield. Clark now has his sights set on earning his first promotional finish against Smith and breaking into the rankings.

Two dark horse talents in the welterweight division collide in the co-main event when 9-0 Miguel Baeza takes on Japanese knockout artist Takashi Sato in a bout unlikely to need the full three rounds.

Gina Mazany was impressive in her flyweight debut, as she stopped a gutsy Rachael Ostovich in the third round.

After some striking exchanges to open the bout, Mazany smoothly scored a takedown and quickly took Ostovich’s back. Ostovich (4-6) scrambled out of trouble and back to her feet, and she proceeded to land some hard body kicks as Mazany fired off left hands and then engaged in a clinch. 

Mazany (7-4) scored a pair of takedowns in the first minute of round two, but Ostovich stayed busy from her back, looking to lock in an armbar. Mazany adjusted well and nearly got a north-south choke, but again, Ostovich found daylight and the two rose. The flyweights traded shots on the feet before Mazany got three takedowns in the final two minutes, putting a stamp on the round. 

Mazany was on target with her strikes in the third, and though Ostovich countered well at times, the volume battle was being won by the Alaska native. After another takedown, Mazany opened up with her strikes and briefly had her foe on the verge of a stoppage before she got back to her feet. A body kick staggered the Hawaiian, though, and another barrage followed. Ostovich gamely rose, but after another kick sent her down, referee Mark Smith halted the bout at 4:10 of the third round.

The two traded takedowns to open the second, Dumont winding up in the top position before moving into the mount. The bloodied Evans-Smith tried hard to escape, and she did with 1:40 left, but she had to eat some hard shots to do so.

Content with her lead, Dumont stayed ahead thanks to her sporadic flurries, one of which dropped Evans-Smith in the final minute, but the Californian was able to survive to the final horn.

In featherweight action, Bill Algeo earned his first UFC win by shutting out Spike Carlyle over three rounds.

After a quick start from Carlyle, Algeo (14-5) settled in and controlled range with his kicks until a Carlyle takedown with 2:15 left. Algeo rose quickly but Carlyle remained locked on until the Pennsylvanian scrambled out of trouble. He found himself back in trouble moments later, though, as Carlyle caught him in a bulldog choke. Algeo got loose, and the two battled it out to the horn.

The scrambles continued in the second, Algeo ultimately getting the fight to the mat in the second minute. He quickly took Carlyle’s back and kept that position until the final minute, when the Californian got into his guard.

Carlyle (9-3) never stopped pushing the pace in an effort to get the fight to the mat, but Algeo’s defense was solid, and he caught his foe on the way in several times en route to a 30-27, 30-27, 30-27 victory on the scorecards.

Scores were 30-27, 30-26 and 29-28 for Porter, now 11-6. Parisian falls to 13-4.

Porter landed with a couple hard rights in the first minute of the fight as he aggressively pursued his opponent in order to set up a clinch.

With under two minutes left, Porter rocked Parisian but got nailed with a spinning backfist, and the fast pace continued to the horn.

A series of leg kicks put the tiring Parisian down in the opening minute of round two, and Porter jumped on a guillotine choke before letting it go and firing off strikes. Parisian soon got his second wind, and he landed some solid strikes, but Porter scored a takedown with a little over two minutes to go and he went to work.

The two heavyweights continued to leave it all in the Octagon in the final round, Porter controlling the action with sharp strikes, while Parisian refused to back down as he took the blows and kept firing back in a hard-fought effort from both fighters.

Official Result: Parker Porter def. Josh Parisian by unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 29-28)
