Two former bantamweight title challengers will face each other for the second time when Alexis Davis and Liz Carmouche collide at 125-pounds at UFC Fight Night 123 in Fresno, California, on December 9th.
First reported by The MMA Kings (@mma_kings) and later confirmed by the UFC, Alexis Davis (18-7) and Liz Carmouche (11-5) will make their flyweight debuts against each other in December.
The pair first fought in 2013 at 135 pounds. After three hard rounds, Davis defeated Carmouche via unanimous decision.
Davis last fought in April of this year, defeating Cindy Dandois by unanimous decision. Before ousting Dandois, Davis was submitted by Sara McMann in December after returning from more than a year off (pregnancy). Davis is a well-rounded martial artist with Muay Thai skills and a strong BJJ ground game.
Carmouche last fought at UFC 205 in New York, defeating Katlyn Chookagian via split decision. The win over Chookagian followed Carmouche’s decision win over Lauren Murphy. “Girl-Rilla” has faced a whos-who in WMMA and has been in wars with the likes of Marloes Coenen, Miesha Tate, Sara Kaufman, Jessica Andrade, and more.
