July 30, 2021
Clark (knee) will fight against Joselyne Edwards on Oct. 23 at UFC Fight Night, Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Clark will see action for the first time since Sept. 19 when she tore her ACL fighting against Sarah Alpar. The 32-year-old will take on Edwards who was supposed to fight with Zarah Fairn on Aug. 28. That fight has been scrapped. Both Clark and Edwards are coming off injuries so it should be close to an even playing field.

October 1, 2020
Clark revealed that she has a torn ACL, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS

Easily dispatches Sarah Alpar
BantamweightUFC
September 19, 2020
Clark defeated Sarah Alpar via TKO (strikes) at 4:21 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
When you think about it, Clark really knocked Alpar out twice. The first came early in Round 3, when Alpar attempted to drop to her butt during an exchange along the fence. Clark greeted her with a knee to the face that caused her nose to explode just before she sat down. Referee Chris Tognoni believed it to be an illegal strike and stopped the action. Upon conferring with replay, he deemed the strike a legal one and somehow allowed the fight to continue. Clearly damaged beyond repair, Alpar served as a punching bag for Clark before Tognoni finally waived it off for good with 39 seconds remaining. Clark was winning throughout the course of the bout but wasn't truly dominating until the knee landed. Clark is tough as nails but has a very limited offensive arsenal despite what we saw in this one. Saturday was her first stoppage victory in well over six years.
Nearing fight against Alpar
BantamweightUFC
July 11, 2020
Clark is expected to face Sarah Alpar at a UFC event scheduled for Sept. 19, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Clark is looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses. Prior to that she had accumulated a three-fight winning streak, which included victories over Bec Rawlings and Paige VanZant. The 32-year-old's opponent, Alpar, will be making her UFC debut and holds a 9-4 record in professional fights.
Handed medical suspension

November 19, 2019
Clark was given a medical suspension following her loss to Pannie Klanzad via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night in Moscow, Nolan King of MMAJunkie.USAToday.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The bout was was a rematch from a July 2015 Invicta fight between the two fighters, but the result was the same. Clark was dealing with a foot injury heading into the match, and will now have to wait six months to draw another fight unless she is able to get cleared by an ENT physician.
Struggles continue in Moscow
BantamweightUFC
November 9, 2019
Clark lost to Pannie Kianzad via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Moscow, Russia.
ANALYSIS
This was a rematch of a July 2015 Invicta fight, and the result -- a unanimous win for Kianzad -- was exactly the same as the first time around. Clark's return from foot surgery was not a good one. Facing an opponent who entered without a victory in the UFC, Clark was swept on the judge's scorecards. Clark has virtually no power in her hands, isn't a great wrestler, and has just two career submissions in 16 fights. It's a bad combination. Clark began her UFC career with back-to-back decision wins over Bec Rawlings (split) and Paige VanZant (unanimous) but has lost both her fights since. There isn't much to see here.
