This isn’t an easy fight for Jessica-Rose Clark to come back to, as Joselyne Edwards has proven to be a scrappy fighter. And while the Panamanian was controlled on the ground in her last fight, Clark has preferred to strike rather than wrestle more often than not. Throw in the litany of injuries to her legs, and it remains to be seen what version of Clark we may see. The one thing I do know is that Clark is durable, having never been stopped in her sixteen professional fights.
As for a prediction, I’m going with Clark. While Edwards does have a three inch height and six inch reach advantage, I believe as long as Clark mixes in a takedown, the threat alone will have Edwards fighter lower and smaller. The main concern I have in this fight for Clark is if her mobility isn’t the same due to the injuries. Watching Thiago Santos fight, it’s clear he’s lacking the same explosiveness that saw him reach a title shot. Regardless, I believe Clark is the better fighter and wins this fight via decision.
