The Women’s Strawweight division plays host to a pair of fighters needing a win, as Livinha ‘The Brazilian Gangsta’ Souza takes on Randa ‘Quiet Storm’ Markos. The former Invicta FC Strawweight Champion Souza entered the UFC with high expectations. However, the Brazilian hasn’t quite lived up to them, going 3-2 inside the octagon. With two losses in her last three fights, Souza will need to rebound. Meanwhile, Markos enters this fight on what could be implied as her last stand. With four consecutive losses and a losing professional record, Markos’ job and perhaps career hangs in the balance.



This should be an interesting scrap, as we have two fighters in difficult spots. Livinha Souza was once regarded as the best Strawweight in the world. Since joining the UFC, the Brazilian has been far from that. With a fairly well rounded skill set, Souza has struggled to implement her abilities inside the octagon. Perhaps this will be the fight that Souza taps into the potential we saw when she fought in Invicta FC. For Randa Markos, this is a must win. The former Ultimate Fighter 20 competitor has never truly found her footing within the promotion. While Markos has had some solid wins over Carla Esparza and Angela Hill, in her seventeen UFC fights, she has never won two consecutive fights. 

As for a prediction, I’m going with Markos. Despite the struggles and clear lack of fight IQ, Markos brings a scrappiness that I believe will help her win this fight. Souza has the skills and grappling to neutralize Markos, however the Brazilian has yet to dominate an opponent since submitting Alex Chambers in her UFC debut. If Markos can keep this fight upright, I’m confident she will outpoint Souza. So with that said, on whim, I predict that Markos wins via decision.
