Just a few days removed from a big win in her UFC debut, Jessica-Rose Clark has been re-booked in a fight with a high-profile opponent. Clark will meet likely meet Paige VanZant in a flyweight bout in St. Louis, according to MMA Fighting.
Clark (8-4, 1 NC, 1-0 UFC) entered the promotion as a late replacement for Joanne Calderwood to take on Bec Rawlings at UFC Sydney last weekend, where she won a decision. She is on a two-fight winning streak overall.
VanZant (7-3, 4-2 UFC) stated a desire to move up to flyweight after a loss to Michelle Waterson last December. She was supposed to fight Jessica Eye in her 125-pound debut, but pulled out with an injury. She then claimed she was going to get a flyweight title shot right away, but UFC officials shot that down immediately.
