01 Jan Video: What the Heck, Episode 11: Devin Clark, Roxanne Modafferi, Ian Heinisch and more
On this week’s episode of What the Heck, UFC flyweight Alex Perez (7:28) recaps his first-round TKO win over Jussier Formiga at UFC 250, being ready to face Brandon Moreno, or step-in for Joseph Benavidez or Deiveson Figuredo for the flyweight title if needed, and who he believes will win the rematch next month.
UFC light heavyweight Devin Clark (25:50) discusses dropping to a knee and raising a fist during his UFC 250 introduction ahead of his unanimous decision win over Alonzo Menifield, raising it again with his team after the win and the story it became, protesting and de-escalating vandalism with Jon Jones in Albuquerque, and the relationship with his father.
UFC middleweight Ian Heinisch (47:27) talks his big first-round TKO win over Gerald Meerschaert, the crazy fight week that left his participation in limbo, booking his next fight right away against Brendan Allen on June 27, and how much training in Thailand reinvigorated his passion for the sport.
Women’s bantamweight Gina Mazany (1:09:48) discusses her short notice return to the UFC after a one-fight hiatus to take on Julia Avila at UFC on ESPN 10, how it took her seven months to find out she had been released from the promotion, being the biggest underdog on the card, and her excitement to potentially play spoiler against a surging prospect.
Finally, UFC women’s flyweight Roxanne Modafferi (1:27:00) previews her fight with Lauren Murphy at the UFC APEX on June 20, talks the impact of her recent win over Maycee Barber, fighting in an empty arena during her two stints on The Ultimate Fighter, not approaching the fight as a title eliminator bout, and prospects to watch on her team.
