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.

Clark damaged ligaments in her right foot, which will require surgery, forcing her to pull out of her bout against Talita Bernardo at UFC 237 on May 11, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Clark suffered the injury while sparring in preparation for her upcoming fight. She is currently in a boot now, and is set to undergo surgery in the coming weeks. It's unclear how long the injury will keep her out for, however it seems to be a fairly significant injury as she requires surgery to repair ligaments in her right foot. More information should come following her surgery, as a timetable will likely be much clearer at that time.
Finds first fight at new weight class

Clark is scheduled to face Talita Bernardo in Brazil during UFC 237 on May 11.
ANALYSIS
Clark is returning to the ring for the first time since she was deemed "medically unfit" to fight at the 125 weight group and was moved up to 135. While that may put her at a size advantage, she should be more fresh when she enters the ring against Bernardo in Rio. Before the move, Clark was 2-1 over her three career fights with UFC, while Bernardo is 1-2 in her young UFC career.
Moving back to 135

December 16, 2018
Clark has announced that she will return to the bantamweight division, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Clark was removed from her scheduled fight at UFC Milwaukee against Andrea Lee after doctors deemed her unfit to fight due to weight cut complications, but that should no longer be an issue after the move up to 135. She had made the 125-pound limit on several occasions since missing the mark for her short-notice UFC debut, but detailed the difficulty of several of those cuts in a social media post. Clark stands at 5-foot-5 with a 64-inch reach, and while she'll lose a bit of a power advantage with the move up, look for her to be much fresher on fight night.
