Sarah Kaufman Draws Alexis Davis for UFC 186; Third Time’s a Charm?

Sarah Kaufman will face Alexis Davis for the third time when the two meet on April 25 at UFC 186 in Montreal. UFC officials announced the bout on Tuesday.

There’ll be no home turf advantage, as both Kaufman and Davis are Canadian, but Kaufman will still hold a distinct advantage in the fight. She already holds two victories over Davis on her resume.

17-Alexis-Davis-UFC-170-w-0513-478x270Kaumfan (17-2, 1 NC) had been angling for a fight with Miesha Tate, who recently defeated Sara McMann, but the UFC instead saw fit to match her up with Davis again. Kaufman stopped Davis via TKO on a small show in Manitoba, Canada, in 2007, and then won a majority decision against her at a Strikeforce show in 2012 in Columbus, Ohio.

Kaufman has got to be tiring of fighting the same women, as she most recently defeated Leslie Smith at The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale last spring, marking the second time in her last three fights she has defeated Smith. The previous victory was under the Invicta FC banner.

Davis (16-6) had a five-fight winning streak stopped by UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 175 last July in a 16-second drubbing. So she’ll not only be trying to exact revenge on Kaufman, Davis will also be trying to get back on track towards title contention.

    Sounds as exciting as the announcement of a mighty mouse fight.

      I have to disagree. This isn’t exciting at all. Kaufman already beat her twice.

        I think you confused the sarcasm in my post with me thinking this match-up was any good.

    Way to legitimize WMMA UFC, you guys really do care about the women and building the division.

    Way better fight than putting Tate in there. Their last meeting was aweeeeeeeeeeeeesome 😀 Can’t wait for it!

    whew hard to stomach Sara. Come on Sara plain jane milk white Kaufman is hard to look at. Sara even makes Chris Cyborg look like a model. Imagine Sara dull Kaufman as a champ or a contender no one would tune in to watch. Sara’s fights are a good time for a bath room break and to get more snacks. Sara is so hard to look at it turns fans off and away from the UFC.
