Alexis Davis (19-8) is a battle-tested veteran of the UFC and Invicta. She is a former UFC bantamweight title challenger and top ten staple. Since moving to flyweight, she is 1-1 with a victory over Liz Carmouche and a loss to Katlyn Chookagian– both split-decisions.
Across the Octagon will be former Invicta FC flyweight champion, Jennifer Maia (15-5-1). Maia entered the UFC as a highly regarded flyweight talent. She had a seven-fight win streak snapped by Liz Carmouche in her UFC debut in July.
Maia recently accepted a six-month suspension from USADA after failing a drug test. Further investigation proved that Maia was innocent and a supplement she took was contaminated. Her six-month probationary period began in August when the test was taken, making her eligible to return in time for this card.
