Drops decision to Claudia Gadelha

July 6, 2019
Markos lost to Claudia Gadelha via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC 239 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Gift wrapped a prime opportunity to move up the rankings against a former title challenger, Markos stood around and did absolutely nothing over the course of the 15-minute bout. In her defense, Gadelha didn't accomplish a whole heck of a lot, either. It was a particularly dreadful performance from Markos on the heels of her impressive submission win over Angela Hill in March. Now 5-6 (1NC) in her first 12 UFC bouts, Markos is the very definition of roster depth in the 115-pound women's division.

Pegged for UFC 239

April 30, 2019
Markos is in line to fight Claudia Gadelha for UFC 239 in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 6, Brett Okamoto of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Markos won her last outing against Angela Hill via submission (armbar) in March, and she'll look to build off that performance. Gadelha had knee surgery in July and has fought just once since then, losing a unanimous decision to Nina Ansaroff in December, but she's had an otherwise solid UFC career with a 16-4-0 record.
Turns heads with dominant victory
strawweightUFC
March 23, 2019
Markos defeated Angela Hill via submission (armbar) at 4:24 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night 148 in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Markos has always been a strong wrestler but has sometimes given rounds away by choosing to strike with an opponent for an extended period of time. That wasn't the case in this bout, however, as "Quiet Storm" was able to drag her opponent to the mat early and make a clever switch to the armbar position when she tried to escape back control. Markos has become a bit of an afterthought in this division due to her tendency to alternate wins and losses but made a statement Saturday, getting her first finish since 2014 when fighting for the Provincial Fighting Championships. She'll be rewarded for the finish too, as Markos will be given a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for her efforts. She improves to 9-6-1 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.

Markos will take on Angela Hill at UFC Nashville on Mar. 23, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Markos hasn't been spectacular in the UFC promotion, as her 4-5-1 record shows. She most recently fought to a majority draw against Marina Rodriguez back in September, further adding to her middling reputation in the circuit. "Quiet Storm" will look to improve her record against Hill, who notably was her housemate on "The Ultimate Fighter 20".
Fights Marina Rodriguez to draw Saturday in Sao Paulo

September 22, 2018
Markos and Marina Rodriguez fought to a majority draw (29-28, 28-28, 28-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
ANALYSIS
It's a fitting ending for a forgettable fight. Markos may have very well deserved a better fate, but she was quite unimpressive in her own right. Markos was able to score a lone takedown in Rounds 1 and 3 before doing next to nothing with her positional advantage. She did just enough for referee Camila Albuquerque to allow the two women to remain on the mat, but Markos landed no notable shots from top position. Markos' 4-5-1 record with the UFC tells you she's a middling fighter and that's exactly what she looked like on Saturday
Headed to Sao Paulo to face DWCS winner
strawweightUFC
September 4, 2018
Markos will take on newcomer Marina Rodriguez in a strawweight matchup at UFC Sao Paulo on Sept. 22, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Markos has alternated wins and losses for her entire UFC career, and if a prospective fantasy owner is the superstitious type, it would be time for a win following a unanimous-decision loss to Nina Ansaroff in July. Little is known about her opponent, except for the fact that she defeated Maria Oliveira to earn her UFC contract on the Brazilian version of Dana White's Contender Series. Rodriguez will have a slight height advantage, as well as the Brazilian crowd behind her, in a fight that will likely end up on the event's early prelims.
