Not a problem! Alexis Davis will 'definitely' stop Ronda Rousey's armbar at UFC 175 (Video)

But what about the liver shot?

"This is gonna be a tough fight. I definitely think I am going to be able to stop the armbar. This is something I train constantly everyday. Obviously she has been doing it in Judo for so long but I have been training mixed martial arts for a long time, a lot of years. I train with world champion black belts. It's not a problem for me. Black belts armbar me everyday. I am not afraid to say that, but you know what? I defend them more often than I get them."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey will defend her 135-pound strap against Alexis Davis at the upcoming UFC 175 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 5, 2014 (more on that here). Since "Rowdy" has won eight of nine fights by way of armbar, the natural question is, how will "Ally-Gator" stop the champion's signature move? While Davis (16-5) sounds confident that defending the submission will "not be a problem," we discovered at UFC 170 that Rousey (9-0) has a Plan B, with the "B" standing for BODYBLOW (just ask Sara McMann). Any chance the Canadian grappler -- 3-0 inside the Octagon -- can pull off a massive upset?
