Alexis Davis: ‘I definitely think I am going to be able to stop the armbar’

UFC women’s bantamweight title challenger Alexis Davis believes she will be able to stop champ Ronda Rousey’s signature armbar come UFC 175.

Alexis Davis is confident she will be the first woman to withstand UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey's signature armbar.

The Ontario-native stopped by InsideMMA, where she discussed her upcoming title fight at UFC 175 and confidently stated that she will be able to stop Rousey's armbar attempts.

"I definitely think I am going to be able to stop the armbar. This is something I train constantly everyday. Obviously she has been training it in Judo for so long but I have been training Mixed Martial Arts for a long time. I train with world champion blackbelts. It is not a problem for me. Blackbelts armbar me everyday. I am not afraid to say that, but I defend them more often than I get them."

When asked about Rousey's pre-fight antics and how they may impact her during the opening frames of the contest, Davis stated that she is not afraid of any sort of pre-fight aggressiveness from the champ.

"Having someone mean-mug me across the octagon doesn't scare me. I had Jessica Eye doing it in my last fight. She [Rousey] is a great fighter and I totally respect her. I don't know her personally."

UFC 175 takes place July 5, at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
