She may have been the underdog heading into Strikeforce on Saturday night, but Canadian Alexis Davis surely believed in her ability to beat Amanda Nunes.

Weathering an early storm from the Brazilian, Davis used her clinch work and ground game to tire Nunes out and finish her in the 2nd round.

Following the fight, Nunes spoke to MMAWeekly.com about the fight, how the victory came about, and her thoughts on getting the winner of Sarah Kaufman and Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate.

Check out this exclusive one-on-one with Alexis Davis.
