Alexis Davis may have lasted only 16 seconds against UFC champ Ronda Rousey, but she’s now in for the long haul in her toughest fight to date: motherhood. That’s right, the Canadian is pregnant, which will put her on the sidelines for a while as a tiny human grows inside of her and then wreaks havoc as it makes its exit.
As per her Instagram:
Big news to announce today a slight delay in my return to the octagon! I planned on spending as much time back home as possible to help with my niece anyways. But we are over joyed by this news and should be expecting our new arrival early 2016!! And planned to back in the Octagon by the end of the year! @flaviomeierbjj
Davis last saw action in the cage at UFC 186, where she took on – and submitted – Sarah Kaufman. Prior to the Rousey loss, she had pretty much earned her title shot by defeating the likes of Liz Carmouche and Jessica Eye.
Now she has to face waking up at 3am and dealing with horrifically dirty diapers.
