Alexis Davis Not Letting Critics Get To Her


Alexis Davis earned her first win in the UFC since giving birth to her first child at UFC Fight Night 108, defeating Cindy Dandois by decision.

Critics have been taking aim at Davis’s performance in the fight, but the victorious fighter isn’t letting that affect her.

“Everybody puts their two cents in,” said Davis after the event. “You get criticized for winning. You get criticized for losing. And you get criticized for just being in the sport. It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter who it is. Everybody puts their two cents in.”

One of the biggest criticisms of Davis’s performance was that she seemingly couldn’t overcome the amateur striking that Dandois possessed inside the Octagon.

Davis also admits that it was hard for her to find a rhythm in the three round bout against Dandois.

“It was kind of difficult to find my rhythm,” said Davis. “She was a little bit … yeah, unorthodox than I thought she was going to be, so that kind of threw me off a little bit.”

The fighter now has a 1-1-0 record since returning from her pregnancy, the other fight was a submission loss to Sara McMann at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 24 Finale.
