Clark, who said she her house was robbed back in Australia while she was in St. Louis preparing for the fight on Thursday, improved to 8-4-1 in her MMA career.

The 30-year-old Clark picked up her first unanimous decision win since July 26th, 2014. In that fight, she defeated Rhiannon Thompson at Roshambo MMA 3 – In the Cage.

She only has two unanimous decision wins in her career.

VanZant, who was making her return after more than a year away from the sport, dropped her second straight fight. She also lost to Michelle Waterson at UFC on FOX 22 on December 17th, 2016 by technical submission (rear-naked choke).

VanZant fell to 7-4 in her MMA career. This was her second unanimous decision loss in her career, as she also lost via unanimous decision to Tecia Torres at Invicta FC 4 – Esparza vs. Hyatt on January 5th, 2013.

The 23-year-old VanZant told her corner that she broke her hand in the second round, as she was leaving the corner. She was very limited in the third round, as she did not even throw a single punch and attempted to kick her way out of the round.
