Alexis Davis: Karma is coming for Ronda Rousey at UFC 175, and she brought it on herself

Because of "all this shit talking."

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey is going to lose her 135-pound strap to 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).

Blame karma.

That's according to the 16-5 "Ally-Gator," who told FOX Sports that "Rowdy" will get her comeuppance over Fourth of July Weekend for all the "shit talking" the champ has done in wars with Miesha Tate, as well as with her comments toward Cristiane Justino.

Said Davis:

"It's all karma. Karma is going to come right back at you ... That's why I'm going to win the belt. Karma is going to come back to her. There's some boundaries you have to have. But I can only imagine the pressure she feels in this situation. She's brought it on herself, all this shit talking, calling people out. She's not a huge Cyborg fan. I think she has to push it every single time. That's not my personality. I keep trying, it just sounds stupid when it comes out ... I believe if I were a little more vocal I would have gotten the title shot already."

Even karma will have its work cut out for it.

Rousey (9-0) has finished every single one of her opponents since making her professional mixed martial arts (MMA) debut in early 2011. She also has three straight submision wins in amateur competition. But as Sara McMann learned at UFC 170, she's more than just an armbar.

Anyone picking upset?
