UFC Mexico Results: Alexa Grasso Outpoints Tough Randa Markos to Decision Win”

August 5, 2017) a couple of strawweight contenders went head-to-head in Alexa Grasso and Randa Markos. She was previously on a nine fight win streak before she was stopped by Felice Herrig this past February via unanimous decision. It was a big shift, especially with Grasso battling a UTI that caused her to miss weight coming into the bout. With a win over Grasso, Markos could earn her first win streak in MMA competition since 2013. Markos lands one of her own. The bell rang to end what was an eventful first round.

They take the center of the cage and Markos lands a body kick. Markos began raining heavy ground and pound on Grasso, but the gritty 23 year-old survived long enough to get to side control, as the round came to an end. That strategy almost fell short after a well-timed double-leg from Markos, but a creative move from Grasso allowed her to threaten with a guillotine choke just long enough to plant her feet back on the mat, at which point she again hammered Markos with a stiff combination. Markos ducks under a punch, and this time is successful with a takedown, attractive timing. Markos took her down again two minutes into the round, which was huge for the Canadian-Iraqi fighter. Grasso lands a right hand, but Markos catches a kick and dumps Grasso to the mat. Marko gets another takedown, but Grasso reverses it and has a headlock on Markos, but "Quiet Storm" ends up in full mount, landing elbows.

The third round started and both females exchanged similarly to the start of Round 1. Grasson throws a left, followed by a leg kick. After a scramble Markos gets to her feet and has Markos against the cage. For nearly two minutes, Markos was able to hold Grasso in her guard before, finally, Grasso mustered up enough strength to get to her feet.

In the second round, the pair clinched shortly after the action got underway, and Markos briefly managed to spend some time on top. With a minute to go Markos looked to have a takedown all but secured, picking up Grasso, but the Mexican fighter threatened with a choke and broke free. Markos nearly catches another kick, as she turns Grasso around and pours on some heavy strikes. Going to the judges' scorecards, it was going to be another close one.
