Both women came out whirling heavy combinations. Davis looked to clinch up and neutralize the big punches from Nunes, and they exchanged knees and punches against the fence. Nunes secured a takedown and put Davis on her back for a brief while, then landed a sharp right hook when they returned to their feet.
Davis closed the distance better to start the second, wrapping Nunes up to contain her striking. Nunes hit a beautiful hip throw in the center of the cage, but Davis quickly reversed position and blitzed with ground and pound. Nunes gave her back and the punishment continued, inspiring a referee stoppage shortly after.
