After reportedly fainting during her weight cut, Jessica-Rose Clark has been pulled from Saturday’s UFC Milwaukee (UFC on FOX 31) card.
The lone women’s bout on Saturday’s UFC Milwaukee card has been cancelled. Andrea Lee had been set to make her hotly anticipated return against another bright prospect in the flyweight division, Jessica-Rose Clark. However, on Friday, it was reported that Clark suffered difficulties cutting weight, and was taken to hospital. Though later released, the fight was removed from the card.
Eric Kowal of MyMMANews was first to report the cancellation.

Clark (9–5 (1)) was looking to bounce back from a loss to Jessica Eye at UFC Singapore in June. An Australian who has trained stateside, Clark missed weight in her return to the flyweight division against Bec Rawlings in 2017. However, the fight went forward, with Clark winning both that, and a subsequent high-profile scrap against Paige VanZant.
Andrea Lee (9–2), popularly known as KGB Lee, was looking to make her second appearance in the UFC. The former LFA flyweight champion came into the promotion with a ton of hype, but has fought just once so far. She was forced to delay her debut due to USADA testing regulations, then found herself dealing with a domestic violence incident earlier this year.
The UFC has yet to issue an official statement on the cancellation.
