Randa Markos vs Alexa Grasso added to Aug. 5 UFC show

UFC Mexico announced on Twitter this afternoon that Randa Markos vs Alexa Grasso has been added to UFC Fight Night 114 Aug. 5 at Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City. This show will air on Fox Sports 1 in the US and TSN in Canada. Alexa is from Mexico. Last time out, she suffered her first loss to Felice Herrig. You may recall the shocked look on her face when the decision was announced. That means her corner told her she was winning. She's a young kid with potential and she's Mexican. But I think she needs to be more aggressive and take some risks in the cage. Right now she's a dreaded points fighter and that caught up to her against Felice. Alexa didn't do enough to win that fight and she was favoured going into it. Randa doesn't have the greatest record. She's 7-4. But I like her aggression. She takes chances and sometimes that is going to bite her. But sometimes it pays off. Her last fight was a split decision win over the favoured Carla Esparza. I called it a draw as the ref missed Carla's illegal knee. That fight was a chess game between two wrestlers and I think it said a lot about Carla's decline. Randa is from Windsor, ON and she trains at Michigan Top Team in Dearborn. I think this fight depends a lot on Alexa's aggression level. She has to try to avoid Randa's takedowns while scoring herself. I'm not sure if the Alexa we saw in her last fight can do that.
