Jessica-Rose Clark on Paige VanZant: “She is at this level for a reason, and that is something not to be taken lightly”

Jessica-Rose Clark returns to action at Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 124 event when she battles Paige VanZant.

Jessica-Rose Clark is looking to eventually work her way up to a UFC flyweight title shot.

Clark (8-4) made her UFC debut this past November, picking up the split decision over Bec Rawlings. The 30-year-old now looks to build on the victory and eventually make a case for a shot at the UFC flyweight title. She discussed her upcoming opponent during a recent chat with MMASucka.

I see this fight going the same way my last one did, with me being better in all areas. I don’t feel much about her as an opponent, as I don’t know a whole lot about her. However, she is at this level for a reason, and that is something not to be taken lightly.” Clark said.

Each fight is the same [for me], whether it’s for a national title, it’s international or it’s for the UFC. I believe that I have done this often enough that I am prepared naturally. Each experience is a fight, and my approach to each one is exactly the same, no matter who or where it is. The division is wide open right now, and there are some killers. I believe it will be the strongest and toughest division in the UFC.” she continued.
