Aussie Jessica-Rose Clark suffered a dislocated arm in her submission loss to Julija Stoliarenko in the UFC 276 card opener.

To open the UFC 276 card in Las Vegas, Aussie Jessica-Rose Clark (11-8, 1NC) lost in a gruesome fashion when her arm was dislocated in a submission loss to Julija Stoliarenko (10-6-2).

The loss marks Clark’s second stoppage loss in a row after being submitted by Stephanie Egger (7-2) earlier this year.

‘Jessy Jess’ got off to a very quick start, however. After pressing forward, she managed to drop her Lithuanian opponent to her knees with a right cross coming off a leg kick.

As Stoliarenko quickly rose to her feet, she started to tag a retreating Clark, before using her pressure to level change and take the fight to the ground.

While on top, Stoliarenko very easily passed to side control, before locking in the armbar. To defend, Clark tried to spin into her opponent, but with her arm hyper-extended she had no choice but to tap out after 42 seconds of action.

In her post-fight interview with UFC Commentator Joe Rogan, Stoliarenko stated that she was happy to finally show her Ju-Jitsu skills in the UFC.

“That’s Jiu-Jitsu” Stoliarenko said.

“I’m doing Jiu-Jitsu under my coach who is a black belt under Roger Gracie. I’m a black belt under Roger Gracie also.

“This is the work we did through eleven levels together and I’m just happy that I finally was able to show those skills in the UFC arena.”

Stoliarenko also stated that she likes to go hard on her submissions, which caused the dislocation.

“I already had troubles in Jiu-Jitsu fights and MMA fights when I did it too lightly,” she added.

“Through that time I just snap it through all movement.

“This is our game, we should do that.”

The quick victory for Julija Stoliarenko marked her first in the UFC and was also recorded as the second quickest submission victory in the history of the Women’s Bantamweight division, only trailing UFC Pioneer Ronda Rousey’s win over Cat Zingano at UFC 184.
