VanZant, a former “Dancing With The Stars” runner-up, fell to 7-4.

The 23-year-old VanZant held a 68-67 advantage in strikes, but Clark was the aggressor. She successfully took the fight to the ground where she held control for 5 minutes and 5 seconds of the three-round 15-minute affair.

“I knew coming in that I was the better fighter and I worked hard to show that,” Clark said.

The fight was the co-feature on an 11-bout card,

Jeremy Stephens beat Dooho Choi at featherweight n the other featured fight.

Stephens, from Des Moines, Iowa, knocked out Choi at 2:36 of the second round with a right hand to the head. He immediately pounced on Choi and pummeled him with short punches.
