Randa Markos took to Instagram today to announce that she quit her job (nevermind the fact that a Top 10 UFC fighter has to have a job outside of fighting) and moved to Montreal to join Canada's best gym - Tristar. She is leaving behind Michigan Top Team.





This is a great move for Markos; Tristar has what she needs to take her career to the next level. Now if only the UFC will give her a fight.

Interesting.  Hope she does well under Firas Zahabi, and can potentially bring another title back to Canada and Tristar Gym.

Hopefully she can fight her way out of the UFC brass' blind spot. They just don't seem to realise how popular she is.

Randa Markos is a legit title threat. I don't know why the UFC doesn't even bother acknowledging her existence. That should be Markos in the spotlight on December 10th in the main event with Paige VanZant, not Calderwood.

I agree with all of the above comments. Tristar and Firas will likely do wonders for Randa's career. Now I really can't wait to see her next fight.

On a side note, I think this helps out Cruickshank as well in a way. I'd have to imagine given how close he and Randa are, he'll occasionally visit Tristar to train.

I love Randa Markos.

I wouldn't mind seeing her in a showcase fight against someone like Bec Rawlings next just to see her show off what she's learned at Tristar, with the winner drawing the winner of PVZ/JoJo.
