In the co-headliner of UFC Fight Night 114 in Mexico City, Mexican prospect Alexa Grasso met Canadian contender Randa Markos in one of the night’s most exciting bouts. After three hard rounds, the judges declared Grasso the victor via split-decision. While fight fan’s opinions differed on who the fight should have been scored for, no one was more distraught over the decision than Randa Markos herself.¬†So much so, that Markos is considering appealing the official decision.

Markos admits that the fight was tough and very close, but she remains adamant that her hand should have been raised. In post-fight media, Markos told MMA Junkie, “I felt that I did enough to win. I think that you need to win at least two rounds to have a victory and I think I won two rounds and was close with the first one. So I think I won that fight.” She added, “I think the first round was very, very close, but I definitely won the last two rounds.”

“I’ve heard a lot about that, I’ve heard a lot of people here in the stadiums feel that I won that fight. I think I’m definitely gonna try and fight that. Hopefully get the victory,” a discouraged Markos said to reporters.

Markos took to Twitter after the fight to express her thoughts.
