A flyweight bout between Alexis Davis (19-9 in MMA, 6-4 in the UFC) and Viviane Araujo (7-1, 1-0) highlights the UFC 240 preliminary card.
Araujo, 32, fought at strawweight for her entire career before her UFC debut in May, when she jumped up two weight classes to knock out bantamweight Talita Bernardo with an overhand right in the third round of their UFC 237 tilt.
“I don’t think I was nervous,” she said, according to UFC.com. “I felt very happy; it was the opportunity that me and my team had been waiting for since my Pancrase-Japan belt conquest last August, so when the opportunity came I was ready.”
She expects to fight between her two previous weight limits, at 125 pounds, for the foreseeable future.
“My physical structure is perfect for the flyweight category,” Araujo told UFC.com. “In order for me to stay on bantamweight, I would need to increase my weight a lot so it would be difficult to maintain one of my best features, which is my speed. So our plan is to stay in the flyweight division now. It’s a weight division in which I feel very good and strong. I don’t suffer from a drastic weight cut and this is a plus for an athlete’s best performance during the fight.”
Davis, 34, is a six-year veteran of the UFC who once challenged for the bantamweight title, succumbing to Ronda Rousey in 16 seconds at UFC 175.
“She is a very experienced athlete in the UFC, has fought against great athletes, and she’s a well-rounded and aggressive fighter,” Araujo noted, per UFC.com. “It will be a great challenge and I am going to be prepared.”
Davis bested Liz Carmouche via split decision in her flyweight debut, but she’s since dropped consecutive fights to Katlyn Chookagian and Jennifer Maia.
“I am not really focusing on that as much. Obviously, I need to get back into the win column. I just want to fight like my old self and show to the fans I still am a top fighter,” Davis said, according to Sherdog. “Everyone focuses on your wins and losses, instead of just relaxing. It just adds pressure to the fight that is not needed.”
