Randa Markos vs Cortney Casey added to Aug. 20 UFC show

The UFC announced that Randa Markos vs Cortney Casey has been added to UFC 202 Aug. 20 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. I expect this fight to air on the prelims. This is a late addition but I noticed there was an injury affecting one of the other fights so it might be replacing that fight. Both fighters are coming of a quick turnaround. Randa won over Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger a couple of months ago. She expressed interest in appearing on the upcoming Vancouver show. For her last fight, Randa returned to Michigan Top Team in Dearborn, MI and trainer Daron Cruikshank. She seems to be back on track. Randa lives in Windsor, ON. It was less than a month ago when Cortney got her first UFC win over Cristina Stanciu after two losses. She said after the fight that she would like to fight Carla Esparza. I think it's too soon for that. Cortney is from Hawaii and has fought a lot in Guam. Now that both fighters have wins over low level competition, let's see who wants to move up the ladder. Randa is a wrestler and Cortney is a striker.
