Out with foot injury
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, reports.
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
March 8, 2019
Clark is scheduled to face Talita Bernardo in Brazil during UFC 237 on May 11.
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, reports.
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.
Deemed medically unfit
December 14, 2018
Clark was deemed medically unfit to compete by UFC physicians Friday and will not fight Andrea Lee at UFC Milwaukee on Saturday.
The nature of Clark's medical issue is not yet clear. With the decision coming so close to the date of the fight, Lee will not be able to find a replacement, so the card drop from 13 fights to 12.
Booked for UFC Milwaukee
September 4, 2018
Clark will fight Andrea Lee at UFC Milwaukee on Dec. 15.
Clark started off her time under the UFC banner with back-to-back wins over Bec Rawlings and Paige VanZant, but came back down to earth in June with a unanimous decision loss to Jessica Eye. As a result, she'll be looking for a bounce-back effort in December and will do so against Lee, who won her debut fight with the UFC in May against Veronica Macedo. Clark will come in at a disadvantage in both the height and reach department at 5-foot-5 with a 64-inch reach, as Lee stands 5-foot-6 and owns a 69-inch reach.
Comes up short on the main card of UFC Singapore
June 23, 2018
Clark lost to Jessica Eye via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night in Singapore.
Clark appeared to be on the way to becoming a contender in the flyweight division.l He won his first two fights at the weight against Bec Rawlings and Paige VanZant. However, her momentum came to a stop with this loss. Clark allowed Eye to take the lead in this fight, and she outlanded her in each round. Clark will need to go back to the drawing board to get to the title picture.
