Alexis Davis vs Liz Carmouche to rematch at #UFCFresno in flyweight bout

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.

  1. I knew that Carmouche was dropping but not Davis. Someone had mentioned that the latter tried out for TUF 26 and didn’t make it. I found that hard to believe. Tough fight to call, but Davis has not impressed since her lay-off from giving birth. Even though she beat Cindy Dandois, she did not look good doing it. I think I might give Liz the edge.

    1. In Davis’ last fight against Dandois, she told Stann she felt undersized as a bantamweight and felt 125 is the perfect weight class for her. It will be really interesting seeing them fight 10 pounds lighter! I always thought Carmouche was a natural flyweight but I never really thought of Davis as one for some reason. Katlyn Chookagian will be making her flyweight re-debut as well soon!
