This Saturday’s UFC on Fox 27 prelims will feature a high-level women’s strawweight matchup between Randa Markos and Juliana Lima.
Markos (7-5-0) will be looking to rebound from a split decision loss to Mexico’s Alexa Grasso at the UFC Fight Night 114 event this past August. The 32-year-old owns UFC wins over Aisling Daly, Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger, Carla Esparza, as well as exhibition victories over Tecia Torres and Felice Herrig during The Ultimate Fighter 20.
Lima (9-4-0) has lost two of her last three, with the losses coming to top-ranked contenders in Carla Esparza and Tecia Torres. The Brazilian owns UFC victories over Nina Ansaroff, Ericka Almeida and JJ Aldrich and looks to add another to the list on Saturday.
UFC on Fox 27 takes place this Saturday January 27 from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States. The preliminary card featuring Markos vs. Lima will be aired live on Fox Sports 1 from 5pm EST.
