Page “12 Gauge” VanZant 7-3 MMA (4-2 UFC) will face Jessica-Rose “Jessy Jess” Clark 8-4-1 MMA (1-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night St. Louis on January 14, 2018.
VanZant hasn’t fought since her first round submission loss to Michelle Waterson last December at UFC on Fox 22. She came into the UFC strong taking out her first 3 opponents before being stopped in the fifth round main event of UFC Fight Night 80.

Clark will be coming off her short notice UFC debut win over UFC veteran Bec “Rowdy” Rawlings 7-7 MMA (2-4 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 121 on November 18th.
