Within her 11th Octagon appearance (tied with former winner Joanna Jedrzejczyk for its most in straight), Markos (9-6-1) avoided going to the scorecards for first time since joining the promotion, finishing house mate Angela Hill (8-6) using a jaw-dropping armbar submission on the preliminary portion of Saturday’s UFC Nashville card.

Markos, a native of Iraq who currently fights out of Ontario, , has struggled to get consistency since emerging as a standout prospect, alternating wins and losses in nine consecutive struggles prior to you go to a vast majority draw against Marina Rodriguez in her last trip in September.

There is a bad blood between Markos and Hill coming from their time in the residence, and which did actually spur Markos onto a aggressive start as she took Hill down and worked tirelessly to secure that the fight-ending armbar at the 4:24 mark of round one.

It is Markos’s instant triumph against one of her competitions. She overcome former straight winner Carla Esparza by split decision in February 2017.
