A bantamweight pairing of Australian native, Jessica-Rose Clark, and recent Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contenders Series victor, Sarah ‘Too Sweet’ Alpar is targeted for a UFC event on September 26th. – with Las Vegas currently planned to host the card.
Skidding contender, Clark made her return to 135-pounds in her most recent Octagon walk – a unanimous decision defeat to TUF finalist, Pannie Kianzad at UFC Fight Night Moscow in November. Hoping to make her first Octagon appearance, former LFA mainstay, Alpar will look to improve on a three-fight winning run. News of the bantamweight bout was initially penned by MMA Fighting reporters, Mike Heck and Damon Martin.
Cairns all-rounder, Clark is expected to make her fifth walk under the organization’s scrutiny, following an earlier defeat to one-time flyweight title challenger, Jessica ‘Evil’ Eye – before wins over the popular, Paige VanZant, and now Bellator prospect, Bec Rawlings. November’s loss to Kianzad marked the second time Clark has dropped a loss to the Swede – following an earlier career defeat under the Invicta FC banner back in 2015.
Finding her first promotional walk proved a strenuous journey for Alpar, who had pairings with Duda Santana, and then Brazil’s, Vanessa Melo shelved due to injury, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, respectively. The Texas-based prospect is the owner of a 9-4 professional record, with a victory over Octagon alumnus, Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger.
