It's the greatest story line in competition history. Put the someone or a team from the USA against Russia, and you have guaranteed viewership.

Wither on the ice in a hockey match, a basketball game, and especially the fight game. We can probably thank Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago for some of this fight hype that gets fans excited.

South Dakota native and UFC fighter Devin 'Brown Bear' Clark's next bout will be in Russia.

I'm a fan of Clark's because he's from my home state and you always get that obvious home town fandom. It's what Clark spends his time doing outside the ring for other that make me root for the guy as a human being and not just a professional athlete.

Sioux Falls UFC Fighter Devin Clark has time and time again used his platform to raise awareness for Down Syndrome.

Ever since Devin connected with his social media man's son Camden, he has been 'Fighting for my Homies with Extra Chromies'!

Devin, Camden Kroger, and Camden's dad Kevin flew to Nashville this past summer to be a part of the music video "In Your Corner".

You will see from the opening scene of the video that "In Your Corner" is a song about Down Syndrome and No Bullying Awareness.
