Q: Who is Zion Clark?

"I was born with Caudal Regression syndrome a very rare disorder. I spent the first 17 years in the foster care system where I bounced around 9 families in the system where I was severely mistreated. At 17 years old I was adopted before aging out of the system, my now mom changed my life by providing me a family of my own and support system.

Wrestling has been a big part of my life since 7 years old, I used it as an escape from my poor home life where I could spend hours working on my skills which gave me relief and a sense of purpose being around my wrestling family. I became a professional track athlete right after high school placing top in the state of OH and now 4th in the country for 100m track. I’m also a talented self-taught musician playing 4 instruments, author, motivational speaker, actor, and advocate for the foster care system."

Q: What are you fighting for right now?

"I’m fighting to get a contract with a major fighting organization like Bellator. I’ve been working daily on my striking game, grappling, and wrestling so I stay ready. I’m also a fighter of life with everything I’ve gone through so fighting to me means more than just a sport, it’s a message I carry with me through life.”

Q: What drives you to get better every day?

"I think my biggest driving force is becoming the best version of myself and seeing how far I can push myself physically and mentally. Seeing progress also continues to push me to continue getting better each day"
