The UFC’s February 5, 2022 Fight Night event will have a strong Canadian contingent in action.

On Wednesday, UFC officials announced four bouts for the card. Among them, a previously unreported showdown between former bantamweight title challenger Alexis Davis (20-11) and Julija Stoliarenko (9-5-2).

After a drop to flyweight that saw her post a 1-4 record, Davis returned to the bantamweight division earlier this year, and has gone 1-1 thus far. In her return fight, the Port Colborne, Ontario native defeated rising prospect Sabina Mazo. Her second fight back didn’t have the same happy outcome; Davis wound up losing a unanimous decision against Pannie Kianzad.

Julija Stoliarenko has lost back-to-back bouts against Julia Avila and Yana Kunitskaya. The former Invicta FC fighter is in dire need of a win with that 0-2 record inside the octagon in mind.

Also confirmed for the UFC’s February 5 Fight Night event are a middleweight bout between Quebec’s Marc-Andre Barriault and Chidi Njokuani, a flyweight scrap between Denys Bondar and Calgary’s Malcolm Gordon, and fellow Calgary native Hakeem Dawodu facing Mike Trizano in a featherweight fight.

Gordon’s manager Daniel Rubenstein had previously confirmed the date with Bondar following an initial report by MMA Junkie. Barriault vs. Njokuani was first reported back in September, during a Dana White’s Contender Series broadcast. Dawodu vs. Trizano was originally reported by MMA DNA.
