Alexis Davis admits 'it sucks' not getting UFC title shot against Ronda Rousey

According to a Dec. 30 tweet from Alexis Davis, the 29-year-old brawler admits she feels a bit hurt by the UFC's decision to pass her up for a title shot against 135-pound champ Ronda Rousey.

At the UFC 168 post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White informed media members that 33-year-old wrestling ace, Sara McMann, would be getting a crack at Rousey (8-0) on Feb. 22 in the main event of UFC 170.

White also noted that Cat Zingano will be back training in March and that she would likely face the winner of Rousey vs McMann.

He didn't make any mention of Davis at the UFC 168 post-fight press conference, and that left some fight fans feeling like the Canadian got snubbed.

Even Davis herself was upset by the announcement, but she plans to keep working hard until her time comes.

"Of coarse [sic] it sucks. But there is no sense crying over it. I'm just going to do what I do and continue to fight hard, till I get my shot!" Davis tweeted.

Davis, who holds a 15-5 record, is ranked by several media outlets as the No. 2 bantamweight in the world, ahead of Zingano, Miesha Tate, Liz Carmouche and Sarah Kaufman.

She holds notable victories over Carmouche, Julie Kedzie, Shayna Baszler and several others.

McMann, on the other hand, has defeated less than a handful of notable names. The former Olympian is undefeated, but she hasn't beaten any of the top 10 contenders in the women's bantamweight division.

Davis may have gotten passed up this time around, but another win over a top five contender will surely push her into a title fight.
