Heather Jo Clark offers to step in for Paige VanZant against Jessica Eye

TUF 20 alum Heather Jo Clark has taken to Twitter to wish Paige VanZant a speedy recovery– and to let the UFC know that she’s ready and willing to fill in for VanZant on a weeks notice.

“Hurricane” Heather Jo Clark (7-6) may be looking to move to the flyweight division. With the news of Paige VanZant vs Jessica Eye being pulled from UFC 216 due to VanZant injuries, Clark has notified Jessica Eye and the UFC via Twitter that she will fill in “no problem!”

Clark is currently on a two-fight skid, falling to Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Alexa Grasso via decisions. Prior to that, Clark defeated Bec Rawlings in her official UFC debut.

Would you like to see this fight come to fruition?

  1. I think Eye wants to wait for the more attention garnering fight against PVZ . If anything, Eye should fight Kalindra Faria since Andrea Lee can’t fight her and both bouts were scheduled to be on the same card at 125, but PVZ would probably be a lot less challenging as well. If Eye doesn’t take her up on Clark’s offer, how about Clark taking on Faria? Again, Clark probably wants the name factor but I think Faria could be the stronger opponent.
