Jessica-Rose Clark looks to stay unbeaten in the Octagon at UFC Fight Night Singapore, where she takes on Jessica Eye.
The Aussie looks to keep her winning streak going by defeating Eye, whom Clark refers to as a very entertaining fighter.
“Really well, she’s an entertaining fighter. She’s very well rounded, I believe that I’m a lot stronger and better everywhere. She has the experience and the skill set to make this an entertaining and good battle, so I’m excited for that. At the end of the day, everybody obviously wants to win…but if I win or lose, as long as the fans still want to see me fighting, that’s the biggest thing. If people think I’m a boring fighter and don’t want to see me keep going and telling me that, then I won’t keep getting paid. I think Jessica presents a very entertaining style that works really well with mine, I’m excited for it…I really am. As soon as they mentioned her name, I was like ‘f*ck yeah, that’s the one I want,’” says Clark in an exclusive interview with Fightful’s James Lynch.
Clark has already fought some big name talent before in the UFC, including Paige VanZant at UFC Fight Night St. Louis.
While Clark plans on getting the win this coming Saturday, one thing the fighter doesn’t do is plan on how that victory will happen.
“Who knows, I’m not a planner. I see so many people who try and plan everything down with meticulous detail, then if it doesn’t go that way…they falter. My style is very fluid and my style is very adaptive, I see it being very similar to the Paige fight. I see myself dominating it, but Ill be preparing to grapple a lot. I know she likes to grapples, I’m just honestly…I’m excited. It just depends on what style Jessica shows up with on that night, I could adopt either way,” says Clark.
UFC Fight Night Singapore takes place on Saturday, June 23 from the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore with Donald Cerrone and Leron Edwards headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
