After a fight in Russia fell through at the last minute, UFC light heavyweight Devin Clark has quickly been given a new assignment: facing Darko Stosic at UFC Stockholm in June.
Devin Clark saw his scheduled scrap at UFC St. Petersburg fall through at the 11th hour. That came after weigh-ins, when scheduled opponent Ivan Shtyrkov took ill. Now, Clark has been rebooked at June’s UFC Stokhom, taking on Darko Stosic. Flo Combat was first to report the news. Stosic also confirmed he was on the card, though he did not name his opponent.

Stosic made his promotional debut last year with a TKO victory over Jeremy Kimball. His coming out party came at UFC Fight Night 134. He’ll have been on the sidelines almost a year by the time he makes his sophomore trip to the octagon, in Stockholm (the event, which is Stosic labeled UFC Fight Night 152, is actually Fight Night 153, due to the upcoming UFC Fort Lauderdale being shifted to ESPN+).
Clark (9-2) has been trading wins and losses of late, and will look to bounce back from a loss against Aleksandar Rakić in December at UFC 231 in Toronto.
UFC Stockholm is headlined by another light heavyweight clash, as former title challengers Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Smith throw down. The card goes down June 1 from the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.
