Report: Alexis Davis and Danilo Marques Depart UFC Roster

Bantamweight veteran Alexis Davis and light heavyweight Danilo Marques are no longer on the UFC roster, per a report from Damon Martin of MMA Fighting.

Davis is exiting the UFC after a 14-fight run that lasted nearly eight years in total. She first joined the promotion in 2013 after previously appearing in Strikeforce and Invicta FC.

Davis challenged for a championship early in her promotional run, losing a fight to Ronda Rousey in 2014.

Despite leaving the UFC, Davis is actually coming off a win. Her last appearance was a decision victory over Julija Stoliarenko a few weeks back. Her run with the promotion is coming to an end after attaining eight wins and six losses.

Marques had a much shorter run in the UFC, appearing four times from 2020 to 2022. He took his second consecutive loss just earlier this month, getting stopped within a round by Jailton Almeida.
