VanZant To Face Rose-Clark
Three days after defeating Bec Rawlings in her Octagon debut, Jessica-Rose Clark is already set to get back in action as she meets Paige VanZant at UFC St. Louis on January 14th.
Clark replaced Joanne Calderwood against Rawlings at UFC Sydney, and walks into the Gateway city on a two-fight winning streak. The Australian fighter signed with the UFC after defeating Carina Damm in August.
VanZant decided to move up to flyweight after losing to Michelle Waterson last December. “12 Gauge”, who holds a 4-2 UFC record, was expected to make her 125-pound debut in October, but was forced out of a fight with Jessica Eye due to a back injury.
The UFC has yet to announce the main event for UFC Fight Night 124, which takes place at St. Louis’ Scottrade Center.
