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.

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.

Out with foot injury
BantamweightUFC
April 3, 2019
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.
