Tara LaRosa makes successful return to action at Extreme Challenge: War at the Shore on Jan. 23 in Atlantic City, NJ (full results)

The world’s number one ranked female MMA fighter, Tara LaRosa made a successful return to action tonight at Extreme Challenge: War at the Shore in Atlantic City, New Jersey following a fourteen month layoff. LaRosa (16-1) battled Alexis Davis (6-2) in a very competitive match that saw the fight dead even going into the third round.

Davis was clearly not intimidated by LaRosa’s ranking or status and came out strong in every round. Both ladies are four-stripe purple belts and very highly skilled on the ground. LaRosa dropped Davis in round one with a big right but Davis was able to recover and attempted an omoplata and an armbar.
