A women’s bantamweight clash between Alexis Davis and Julija Stoliarenko has been added to the lineup for UFC Fight Night on Feb. 5.
Promotion officials announced the pairing Wednesday. UFC Fight Night takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a middleweight showdown between Sean Strickland and Jack Hermansson.
A former title challenger, Davis is 1-4 in her last five Octagon appearances. In 2021, the 37-year-old Canadian took a unanimous decision over Sabina Mazo at UFC Fight Nigh 186 before dropping a three-round verdict against Pannie Kianzad at UFC 263.
After winning the Invicta bantamweight title with a victory over Lisa Verzosa in March 2020, Stoliarenko has fallen to Yana Kunitskaya and Julia Avila in her first two UFC outings. The 28-year-old Lithuania native is 9-5-2 as a pro, with eight victories coming via submission.
