Jessica Rose Clark set to face Talita Bernardo at UFC 237

Australia’s own “Jessy Jess” is making her return to the octagon for her fourth fight in the UFC.

Clark (9-5) will take on Brazil’s Talita Bernardo (6-3) in her home town of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Clark is moving back up to Bantamweight after having to cancel her recent scheduled flyweight bout against Andrea Lee due to weight cutting issues.

The Aussie is coming off a loss to Jessica Eye but prior to that had a win over UFC favorite Paige Van Zant at flyweight.
