UFC Singapore witnessed a flyweight clash between two “Jessica’s” of the sport for a place in the higher ranks of the women’s flyweight division. It was Jessica Evil Eye who would have her hands raised at the end of the fight. Eye’s diverse striking proved too much to handle for Rose as she edged her opponent for a unanimous decision victory.
The final scorecards were 30-27 and 29-28 twice for Eye, who made her second octagon appearance at flyweight after a disastrous run as a bantamweight.
And as far as Rose is concerned she was nothing but class in her defeat. She even posted a picture with her Singapore foe with an optimistic message.
And now with the fight in the books, Clark has started attempting to find out what exactly went wrong in the fight. In an Instagram post she said that her weight cut and preparation were perfect but during the fight, her body and mind refused to cooperate. It was such a unique experience that she has decided to release a YouTube video regarding the same in a few days.

Striking is such a beautiful thing. It’s my favourite part of what I do. Putting on a good song and letting my body move through my flow, along with the beat, is when I am most at peace. I fucked up this weekend. Out the back I felt 🔥 better than ever before. My prep was perfect. Weight cut was perfect. Then a switch clicked and my mind wasn’t catching up with my body. I’m releasing a YouTube video in the next couple of days, talking about exactly what I mean. I’ve never felt anything like it and it was such a unique experience for me. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you all ❤️ #UFCSingapore
The defeat may have stopped Clark’s rise in the rankings but she looks determined to regain her winning ways.
