After knocking out Alita Bernardo just shy of a minute into the third round of her UFC debut, Araujo will get ready for just her second UFC fight on just two months rest. It's unclear what weight the fighters will participate at, but as a natural Strawweight, Araujo had no trouble moving up weight in her last match to win. Alexis Davis usually fights at the flyweight division, so it will be interesting to see where the two sides agree to fight at.
