Both Carmouche (135 lbs) and Davis (134 lbs) made weight for the fight.

Nunes (8-3) was successful in her UFC debut in August with a dominant win over Sheila Gaff. Randamie (4-2) won her UFC debut in July by a close split decision over Julie Kedzie. Both Nunes and Randamie came in at 136 pounds.

Both fights will be televised on Fox Sports 1, with the card starting at 2 p.m. pst/5 p.m. est.
