After weight cut-related issues forced her UFC Milwaukee bout versus Andrea Lee to be cancelled, Jessica-Rose Clark will be headed up to bantamweight for her next fight.
On a video posted to her YouTube channel, Jessy-Jess addressed the situation.
“I felt a little sick, but nothing like the cut for (UFC Fight Night 124) St. Louis. So I was like, I feel better than I have in the past, so I’m good.”
“Went back up to the room, went to the bathroom and apparently passed out. My coach, Walker (Vivian), came and found me and panicked ‘cause he thought he’d killed me and took me straight to ER and they put me on an IV. Then when I met with the UFC doctor, the fight got called off.”
Clark (9-5, 1 NC) has fought the majority of her career at bantamweight, having faced the likes of 135-pound vets like Sarah Kaufman, Pannie Kianzad, and Carina Damm.
She debuted in the UFC as a flyweight in 2017 versus Bec Rawlings. She came in slightly heavy for the bout, but won via decision and earned a spot on a UFC on FOX card versus Paige VanZant. Clark would go on to defeat VanZant by decision as well.
Her win-streak was snapped in June when Jessica Eye won a unanimous decision over her.
Clark joins Sijara Eubanks as a flyweight making the move back up to bantamweight.
We are relieved to hear that Clark is safe and healthy!
