UFC strawweight and TUF 20 cast member Randa Markos is looking to take her career to the next level. Markos made the headlines a little while back when she called out rising star Paige VanZant. Back at the start of September Markos took offense to VanZant moving up, past her in the rankings.
“I’ve fought some pretty good girls. I fought Tecia, I fought Aisling Daly and she was ranked pretty high before the show. We just need to see how she does against the top girls. I really think me moving down in rankings and her moving ahead of me, that only made me want to fight her even more.”
Well, Markos won’t be fighting VanZant anytime soon, as the Team Alpha Male fighter already has a headlining fight scheduled against Joanne Calderwood, set for Dec. 10, in Las Vegas.
However, Markos has decided to take a major step in advancing her skills and career and has dropped everything to make it happen. She recently quit her job, packed her bags and traveled to Tristar gym, where she will now train full-time.
‘Quit my job packed my stuff heading to Montreal. You only have one chance we only have one chance time to make the most of it’
