Jessica-Rose Clark can sense a shot at Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) gold in the near future.
Clark is coming off a split decision victory over Bec Rawlings at UFC Fight Night 121. The two did battle inside the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia. The match-up took place this past Saturday night (Nov. 18).
After the bout, Clark told the media just how close she thinks she is to a women’s flyweight title shot (via MMAJunkie.com):
“One hundred percent, I’m supposed to be in flyweight. I’ve felt like that for a long time, and it’s just taken me a while to get my weight in check and make sure my preparation is key. It’s wide open. I feel like I’m a couple fights away from being able to fight for the belt anyway after they crown it Dec. 1 (at The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale). I feel I stack up well with anybody they give me.”
