The troops at Fort Cambell, KY will have a great WMMA match to watch.
Several websites reported Friday #4 Unified ranked Alexis Davis will take on #7 ranked Liz Carmouche at UFC Fight Night 31: Fight for the Troops 3 November 6. Both Davis and Carmouche (9-3) are coming off wins in the UFC; to Rosi Sexton and Jessica Andrade respectfully.
Davis (14-5) is on a three fight win streak, becoming the first fighter to submit Shayna Baszler in her career. Davis got the decision win over veteran fighter Sexton in June. She is currently ranked #6 in the UFC rankings.
Marine vet Carmouche (9-3) had won two in a row before losing her UFC debut to champion Ronda Rousey. She had a dominant performance over Andrade, getting a TKO win in the second round back in July. She is currently ranked #5 in the UFC rankings.
A win could see either in prime placement behind Cat Zingano on getting a title shot.
No word on where the match will be placed on the card, but the match will air on Fox Sports 1 November 6.
