UFC Fight Night 124 takes place on Sunday Jan. 14 at the Scottrade Center. This event is a highly anticipated one and the fight card is looking tempting to say the least. While the men’s fights are creating a lot of noise, you can rest assured that the female fighters have a show to put up of their own. Paige Van Zant will take on Jessica Rose – Clark in what is set to be a highly competitive, ruthless bout.
Van Zant goes into this fight with a decent record of 7 wins and 3 losses. Nearly half of her victories have come courtesy of unanimous decisions. Her recent form has been confidence inspiring as she has won the 5 of her last 7 competitive fights in the UFC. However, her most recent fight did not quite go as well as she would have hoped and she was beaten by Michelle Waterson back in 2016. Therein lies her next issue – she has not fought since December of 2016. She was scheduled to come up against Jessica Eye, but that fight was cancelled due back injury and some other unexplained reasons. This is VanZant’s first competitive fight in the state of Missouri.
Her opponent on UFC fight night 124 is going to be Jessy Rose-Clark who currently has 8 wins and 4 losses to her name. Clark is an excellent athlete and very good at takedowns. Her 7 victories have included couple of knockouts and couple of submissions.
For our prediction, we cannot see VanZant being beaten here, she should get the victory by decision.Author : Rory McGregor
