Says this is a huge opportunity…
- Alexis Davis recently spoke about her UFC Fight Night 31 bout with Liz Carmouche. Here are the highlights…
On Fighting Liz Carmouche: "This is a really big fight for me. She is one of the top fighters, had her title shot, and this is a huge opportunity. It's almost as if this is my title fight. This right now is my title fight. I think this is a huge fight for me," Davis said. "Liz is one of the top-ranked fighters not just for the UFC, but for the rankings for my entire division. So I'm really excited."
On Being In The UFC: "I've fought in Strikeforce before, but it was nothing like being in the UFC," she said. "I've been there before, kind of experienced it. Big stage, big crowd, and now I feel more prepared. I feel a lot more comfortable now as close as I am to the fight as I was before."
On Not Being The Favorite: "I definitely don't think I'm the crowd favorite like I was before," Davis said. "But I kind of like it. It takes the pressure off."
On Working For a Title Shot: "Whether or not [a win] leads to a future title shot, I'm not really sure," Davis said. "But it's definitely going to jump me up the rankings and toward that position."
