Randa Markos vs Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger added to June 18 UFC show

Randa Markos, Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger
The UFC announced this afternoon that Randa Markos vs Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger has been added to UFC Fight Night 89 June 18 at TD Place in Ottawa, ON. This show will air on Fox Sports 1 in the US and TSN in Canada. Randa is from Windsor, ON but she is currently training at Tri Star in Montreal. You might not recognize her because she just dyed her hair red. Randa is a very good wrestler but she needs to work on her kickboxing skills. In her last fight, I thought she got jobbed a bit losing to Karolina Kowalkiewicz. But Karolina certainly took advantage of Randa's weakness on her feet. I expect Jocelyn will try to do that too but she's not as quick as Karolina and she has no ground game. Jocelyn was a late replacement when she lost to Tecia Torres in December. She needs to prove she belongs in the UFC. I have my doubts. She was a champ in the RFA but this ain't the RFA and she has to raise her game.
