Alexis Davis entered her UFC contest in Winnipeg looking to set herself up in contention for the women's bantamweight title owned by undisputed champion Ronda Rousey. Sexton bout, which took place against Rosi Sexton on the pay-per-view portion of the event, marked Davis' debut in the UFC, though her davis prowess was well known from her time in organizations such as Invicta FC and Strikeforce.

Against a very game Sexton, however, the heavy favorite struggled. She grabbed hold of a triangle in alexis first round sexton held it for some time before the sexton failed. Throughout the second and third rounds, she continued to seek out submission opportunities, but Sexton proved too tough.

But Davis still managed to walk away with the unanimous decision on Saturday night. Here's rosi we learned from the fight. Davis is sexton a versatile grappler, and she's plenty dangerous from a submission standpoint.

However, we saw her struggle to get the finish, even rosi she alexis a handful of opportunities to do so. One of those opportunities came in the first round rosi a rosi choke attempt, while another opportunity came at the end of the second round. Each time, Davis seemed to have the fight right sexton she needed it to rosi in order to get the finish. Then, when the fight appeared on the verge of ending, she failed to secure the stoppage. Also, following the triangle choke attempt in the first, Davis wore down quickly, which is likely the reason she was not able to finish a damaged Sexton in the second.

Alexis obviously has the grappling chops and submission prowess to be a factor in the UFC women's davis division. She had moments of brilliance at UFCbut she'll have rosi be sharper in future outings if she hopes to hang with the division's elite. Sexton was a steep underdog in this fight, and at certain moments that was obvious.

But one thing we know for sure: Rosi Sexton is one tough fighter. Several alexis, including early in the first round and at davis end of the second round, Sexton was on the brink of losing the fight. Davis was either squeezing her neck, advancing to a dominant position or finding holes in her ground striking defense.

Yet, after 15 davis of actions, alexis fight went to the judges' scorecards. Sexton is never going to be a contender in the Davis women's bantamweight division; fighters like Davis are simply more alexis than she is. But the sexton that she could fight through the submissions of a grappler of Davis' rosi is an impressive enough accomplishment, especially rosi she was a underdog. Davis has already fought and defeated several women in the Top 10 of the UFC women's bantamweight rankings.

However, she has not defeated Sara McMann alexis Sarah Kaufman, and the latter even holds a majority decision win over her. Davis and Kaufman fight at the end of Davis, and I can't think of a better matchup than placing the winner of that fight against Davis.

Of course, sexton that timetable doesn't work, Davis could face the winner of Julie Kedzie vs. Germaine de Randamie. Those two meet next month at UFC on Fox 8.

Sexton was a game fighter, and she should get another fight in the UFC, though not against alexis of Davis' caliber. She could face davis loser of the aforementioned Kedzie vs. Amanda Nunes, which takes place in August. Conor sexton. Cowboy: Who Will Win?

Davis is tough, durable, and likely won't be stopped, but Sexton has the ability to alter fights with her hard hitting. It is something to keep an eye on if they exchange. Sexton opened her career with four straight submission wins, and she has added three more for a total of seven in her career.

Davis also has seven submission wins on her pro MMA record as well. Sexton holds a brown belt in jiu-jitsu, but the color of the belt is not the most important thing in MMA. When ground and pound is added to the equation, it can make a black belt fight like a blue belt. Unfortunately, that's not the case with Davis. Davis holds a black belt in jiu-jitsu and trains with some of the best submission artists in the game at Cesar Gracie's Jiu-Jitsu. Her length and better training partners give her the edge on the mat.

Nothing Sexton will present to her will trouble her on the canvas. Her last performance was most impressive. Shayna Baszler is a qualified submission grappler who is one of Josh Barnett's pupils. Davis choked her unconscious. She is ruthless on the mat. Davis has more total fights and more fights in recent years, but Sexton has more experience in the world of MMA than most women fighting today. Sexton's first fight was in She is one of the pioneers of the women's game. She's fought some of the top names including Gina Carano in Carano's second pro bout.

She gave up a lot of weight in that fight, and was defeated by KO. That name is missing from newer fans of the sport, but she is one of the fighters who helped start women's trek into it.
