Alexis Davis, a one-time contender to the UFC female bantamweight title, is now in another fight.
But this time, she has her entire family fighting alongside her.
Davis posted on social media Wednesday night that her niece, Hayden, has been diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma cancer.
“I’m not the only fighter in my family, she’s strong willed, stubbon,” Davis wrote. “We are confident that she will make it through.”
