Alexis Davis Submits Tonya Evinger At Raging Wolf 7In the first defence of her Raging Wolf Women’s Flyweight (135-Pound) Championship, Port Colborne, Ontario’s Alexis Davis submitted tough challenger Tonya Evinger in the third round of their main event bout at Raging Wolf 7. Davis battled back after a strong first round from Evinger.

The win got Davis back on the winning track after a razor-thin decision loss to Shayna Baszler at Freestyle Cage Fighting 40 in March. Many observers felt that Davis deserved the win against Baszler, but the rising Canadian star was undeterred and has now won four times by submission.

Evinger (7-4-0), competing for the first time in nearly two years, came out aggressively in the opening round and took Davis (8-3-0) down. She scored with hard right hands from the top and did damage on the feet as well to win the round in convincing fashion. In round two, the fighters exchanged punches before Evinger scored another takedown. Davis defended well and attempted submissions off of her back, then swept and took control as Evinger, who took the fight on very short notice, began to fatigue.

In the final round, the fight returned to the mat and Evinger appeared to have very little left in the gas tank. Davis capitalised and took Evinger’s back, then locked on a fight-ending rear-naked choke. Despite a bloodied and badly swollen face and eye, Davis successfully defended her Raging Wolf title for the first time and solidified her place among the top female stars at 135 pounds.

Result: Alexis Davis defeats Tonya Evinger by Submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 1:47 of round three. She improves to 8-3-0 and remains the Raging Wolf Women’s Flyweight Champion.


Raging Wolf plans to hold their eighth event in July and Davis may be part of the card, but no decisions have been made at this time. Davis holds the promotion in high regard, particularly due to the fact that the New York-based organisation is willing to showcase women’s bouts in main event slots. Raging Wolf has heavily promoted Davis and plans to hold additional women’s fights throughout the year.
