The FOX Sports 1 prelims come at us with Randa Markos and Cortney Casey. Markos made an impression while in the TUF House, but hasn’t managed to break into the elite group of female fighters we should care about.
The two spend the first minute boxing, and it’s Casey who scores with a combo that forces Markos to shoot. Casey sprawls and batters her, but when Markos steps over and sticks her hip out, she’s able to throw the American, secure kesa-gatame, and pound away. Oh, but Casey ain’t done – as evidenced by her escaping onto Markos’ back and paying her back with fists and elbows. Markos reverses into Casey’s guard in the final minute, and boom! Casey slaps on the armbar, forcing Markos to tap.
Result: Cortney Casey def. Randa Markos via Submission (Armbar) at 4:34, R1
