Alexis Davis


Falls to 1-4 in past five fights
June 12, 2021
Davis lost to Pannie Kianzad via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 28-29) at UFC 263 on Saturday in Glendale, Arizona.
Davis picked up her first win in more than three years in her most recent bout against Sabina Mazo this past February, but went right back to her losing ways on Saturday. Davis tried to remain busy on the feet and overwhelm Kianzad with volume, but her complete inability to get out of the way of return fire was her ultimate downfall. Davis has been a professional for more than 14 years and somehow has a knockout win over Amanda Nunes (September 2011) on her resume, but the Canadian is now 36 years old and is 1-4 in her past five fights dating back to July 2018. She is nothing more than roster depth at this point.

First win in three-plus years
February 27, 2021
Davis defeated Sabina Mazo via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-26) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It was a victory that almost certainly saved Davis' job. Entering on a three-fight losing streak, without a win since December 2017 and on the sidelines for the past 19 months, Davis leaned on her wrestling and fight IQ to emerge victorious. The Canadian landed one successful takedown in each round and was credited with 8:50 worth of control time over the course of the 15-minute bout. It wasn't particularly entertaining to watch, but that's a secondary concern for Davis at this point. Davis, now 36 years of age and best known for being knocked out in 16 seconds by Ronda Rousey in a championship fight back in 2014, will be back following this result.

Looks overmatched on feet
July 27, 2019
Davis lost to Viviane Araujo via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC 240 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Saturday.
Davis just looked a step slow throughout this contest, getting tagged hard on the feet and missing with counters. She clearly won the second round after getting a reversal and landing some decent ground-and-pound, but Round 3 began on the feet, where Araujo immediately reestablished control. Davis is a physical presence at this weight class, but is a stiff striker and doesn't have a great wrestling game to compliment her BJJ, which will make it tough for her to consistently win fights against skilled opponents. She falls to 19-10 in professional MMA and is currently riding a three-fight losing streak.
Finds opponent for UFC 240

Davis will fight against Viviane Araujo at UFC 240 in Edmonton on July 27th, Nolan King of Flocombat reports.
Davis is coming off a tough loss at the heads of Jennifer Maia via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 148, but will get a chance go get back in the win column against a relatively new fighter in Araujo. The weight at which the fight will take place wasn't announced, but it will be interesting to see, considering Davis is known as a flyweight, while Araujo is known as a strawweight. Davis will be 19-9 in her MMA career heading into the fight while Araujo is just 1-0.
