New mother Alexis Davis is ready to resume her fighting career.

Davis (17-6), who gave birth to a boy earlier this year, is back to full-time training and is hoping to fight again before the end of the year, according to her manager Mike Roberts.

The Canadian-born bantamweight, considered to be one of the best female fighters in the world, hasn't fought since her April 2015 win over Sarah Kaufman. She'll return to the UFC a winner in six of her last seven fights, with her only loss coming to then-bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

According to Roberts, the UFC has yet to book Davis' next fight.
