Baby on Board: UFC Contender Alexis Davis Announces Pregnancy

August 25, 2015

Alexis Davis, the UFC’s No. 3 ranked women’s bantamweight, hasn’t fought since April, but has a good excuse. She revealed on Tuesday that she is pregnant.

Davis last fought against Sarah Kaufman, avenging a 2012 majority decision loss by submitting Kaufman via armbar.

Despite amassing a 4-1 UFC record with her lone loss being to champion Ronda Rousey, Davis hasn’t fought since defeating Kaufman and won’t be fighting again for the near future. She is currently aiming for a return to the Octagon by the end of 2016.

Alexas Davis vs Jessica Eye“Big news to announce today a slight delay in my return to the octagon! I planned on spending as much time back home as possible to help with my niece anyways. But we are over joyed by this news and should be expecting our new arrival early 2016!!” Davis wrote on Instagram. :And planned to back in the Octagon by the end of the year!”

With the win over Kaufman, Davis rebounded nicely from the loss to Rousey, but it’s going to take at least a couple more impressive victories to get back into title contention. Taking time off to have a baby, however, she’ll now be focusing on a much different challenge.
