Paige VanZant Ready To Make Stand In UFC's Flyweight Division

Jessica Rose Clark DM Paige VanZant Ready To Make Stand In UFC's Flyweight Division
Shannon Reynolds | 15 January, 2018, 09:28

When VanZant looked to take the fight to the ground again in the second round, Rose-Clark made the most of it one more time when she almost secured a fight-ending triangle choke. "On the flip, the loss marks back-to-back defeats for VanZant, and setbacks in three of her last four showings will only serve to further tarnish the once bright future so many had projected for the former dancer turned fighter".

VanZant was making her flyweight debut on Sunday, looking to bounce back after having lost 2 of her last 3 bouts at strawweight.

Australian fighter Jessica-Rose Clark's ground game proved decisive as she ended a tough week with a UFC flyweight unanimous points win over high-profile American Paige VanZant in St Louis.

VanZant looked to secure a takedown in the first round, but Rose-Clark stuffed it and controlled the action from there. As VanZant worked from inside Clark's guard, Clark locked up a triangle choke from the bottom, coming close to finishing it before running out of time in the round.

VanZant opened the third frame again attacking from distance, but this time it quickly became clear that something was wrong with her right arm, as she was only launching kicks and left hands, being careful to keep her right arm out of Clark's grasp. That resulted in her throwing nearly no strikes with her right hand in the final frame, but still managing to do solid work with her kicks.

The Saints had the ball back moments later when Keenum made a bad throw under pressure that was picked off by Marcus Williams . Everyone at that game chose to stop watching hockey for a few minutes so they could catch the end of the Vikings game.

"Watching Bec and Jessica fight I saw a lot of similarities in their styles", VanZant said.

'I guess I didn't feel as energised as what I was hoping to be and what I have in the past.

"I've been wanting to show that I can grapple as well, everyone knows me as a striker".

"I'm moving up to flyweight and I'm going to be stronger than I've ever been", she said.

Clark made her UFC debut with a victory over Rawlings past year, taking that fight on short notice.
