With less than a month left before UFC 202 takes place, a final bout has been announced for the August 20th event. A women’s strawweight bout between Randa Markos and Cortney Casey has been made official by the UFC today.
Both Markos and Casey will be making quick turn around as both women have already fought once this summer. Marcos last fought on June 18th while Casey competed less than a month ago on July 13th.
Markos (6-3) is coming off a win in her June 18th bout. She defeated Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger via a unanimous decision. Markos is 2-2 in the UFC after a deep run in the Ultimate Fighter.
Casey (5-3) earned her first victory in the UFC when she defeated Cristina Stannic via a first round TKO. It was the third KO/TKO win for Casey in her career.
UFC 202 will be headlined by the rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz. The event will be held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and air live on pay-per-view.
