ST. LOUIS — Jessica-Rose Clark ended a difficult week with a unanimous decision over Paige VanZant on Sunday in the UFC Fight Night card.

The 30-year-old Australian improved to 9-4, receiving winning scores of 30-27, 29-28, 29-28 from the judges.

Clark’s Las Vegas home was broken into Thursday while she was in St. Louis for the flyweight battle. Thieves stole $30,000 worth of jewelry and video games. Her 1-year-old cat, Dwight, was kicked repeatedly, suffered broken ribs and had to be euthanized.

"I had a stressful week and I did let the stress get to me a bit," Clark said. "I just want to get home and I will figure out the rest later."

Hundreds remember bright, ambitious B.C. teen killed by stray bullet .
COQUITLAM, B.C. — Samson Wong wept Saturday as he apologized to his teenage son, saying he wishes he could have protected the young man from the stray bullet that took his life. Alfred Wong was heading home to Coquitlam with his parents on Jan. 13 when a bullet pierced their vehicle on a Vancouver street, striking the 15-year-old. He died in hospital two days later. Vancouver police have said they believe the shooting was gang related. “Alfred, forgive Mom and Dad. We tried to protect you,’’ Samson Wong said at his son’s memorial service on Saturday. “Mom and Dad have been talking. We wish the bullet went for our heart, not yours.’’ Sobs could be heard throughout the Coquitlam Alliance Church as Wong spoke to the crowd of about 700 mourners, saying he still can’t accept or believe what has happened. “Every morning when we wake up, we tell ourselves it was a dream, a bad dream,’’ he said. His son’s body lay a short distance away, dressed in a red plaid shirt and grey toque, in an open casket. Wilfred Wong told the crowd that his younger brother was his “closest companion and an irreplaceable pillar’’ in his life. “Fifteen years was far too short a time on Earth,’’ Wong said. “But for 15 years, he lived a life full of happiness and joy. Thank you, Alfred, for being in our lives, reminding us to always be true to who we are and to always cherish the people we love and care about.
