“I’m ok,” Clark wrote. “Really upset, but happy to be here. This camp has been a roller coaster but I thought it would all be ok when I got to fight. Weight cut was more on track than any before. Body gave up on me though. Lesson learned. I’ll post a video later tonight. Thanks for all the love.”

Sorry guys my fight was scratched, it’s kinda funny actually, considering how crappy 2018 has been. I’ve made no excuses though, I came prepared, I trained hard, camp was AMAZING, I water loaded, I ate my meals, I started my cut as soon as I stepped off the plane, actually before I got on the plane, I cut all day yesterday and was at 128 when I went to bed and woke up at 127, I’m always ready. I know Jess wanted to fight as badly as I did and it’s just unfortunate how these things turn out, I hope she is well and healthy. It sucks for the both of us. Please don’t talk shit, it’s over and we are focused on the next. Auction for the hat starts now and will end dec 18, bidding starts 150$. DM me or message me below. #ufc #ufcfightnight #ufcmilwaukee #shithappens #auction #andreakgblee #kgblee ***Bid in the comments
