Alexis Davis Announces Pregnancy

It seems congratulations are in order for UFC bantamweight contender Alexis Davis as she announced on Tuesday via her Instagram (above) that she is pregnant and will not return to the Octagon until late 2016.

Davis (17-6) last fought in one of her biggest wins to date, scoring a second-round submission over Sarah Kaufman back in April at UFC 186 and has won 6 of her 7 previous fights. That loss coming against Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

Davis earns the distinction of becoming the first female UFC fighter to delay her career due to pregnancy since the promotion added women in 2013.
