Drops close decision in Nashville
FlyweightUFC
March 23, 2019
Davis lost to Jennifer Maia via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night 148 in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Davis likes to fill the space with volume until she can work her clinch game but that style played right into the hands of Maia, who used her sharp boxing to tag the opponent with combinations. Davis was able to take Maia to the ground after catching a kick in Round 2 but was unable to find a finish before Round 3 took us back to where we came in. While we have seen Davis' slick grappling in previous UFC bouts, she needs to find a way to get fights to the ground consistently, as her volume and pressure game simply isn't enough in a division of technical strikers. Davis falls to 19-9 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.
Scheduled to face Maia at Nashville

Davis will face off with Jennifer Maia at UFC Nashville on Mar. 23, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The Canadian will get a chance at redemption following her third loss in the UFC promotion back in July. However, Davis faces a tough task in fighting Maia, as although Maia has little experience in UFC, she had won six consecutive fights prior to her UFC debut in July.
Dominated on feet by Katlyn Chookagian Saturday
FlyweightUFC
July 28, 2018
Davis lost to Katlyn Chookagian via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 27-30) at UFC on FOX 30 on Saturday in Calgary.
ANALYSIS
Davis had no answers for her younger, longer opponent. Eight of Davis's 19 career victories are via submission and she continues to struggle in anything other than a ground battle. Due to turn 34 years old in October, Davis gets hit way too much in striking exchanges these days and she has fought relatively little over the past few years due to the birth of her child. The UFC's introduction of a women's flyweight division looked as if it might have given Davis's career a second wind, but she was unable to take advantage of the opportunity on Saturday in her home country.

April 27, 2018
Davis is booked to take on Katlyn Chookagian in a flyweight bout at UFC Calgary on July 28.
ANALYSIS
Davis is coming off a victory over Liz Carmouche via split decision at UFC Fight Night in Fresno back in December, and she now enters UFC Calgary boasting a two-fight win streak. The veteran fighter has been very impressive since joining the UFC back in 2013, boasting a 6-2 record at 33 years old, but she'll be out to the test against Chookagian, who has lost just once in her MMA career.
