Juliana Lima meets Randa Markos at UFC on FOX 27 in Charlotte

The UFC’s return to North Carolina after a nearly eight-year absence continues to build with the addition of a women’s strawweight bout.

Juliana Lima (9-4 MMA, 3-3 UFC) is set to take on Randa Markos (7-5 MMA, 3-4 UFC) at UFC on FOX 27 in January. Promotion officials announced the new booking today after an initial report from MMADNA.nl.

UFC on FOX 27 takes place Jan. 27 at Spectrum Center in Charlotte. The main card will air on FOX after prelims expected for either FOX or FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. No headliner has been announced for the event yet, which will be the UFC’s first show in North Carolina in nearly eight years.

Juliana Lima

Lima is coming off a submission loss to Tecia Torres in July at the TUF 25 Finale in Las Vegas. She’s been up and down her past four fights with decision wins over Ericka Almeida and J.J. Aldrich, but the loss to Torres and a decision setback against Carla Esparza.

Canada’s Markos needs to rebound from a loss, as well. She has not had a winning streak since starting her pro career 3-0 – but she’s also never lost two consecutive fights. The entirety of her seven-fight UFC tenure has been down, then back up.

In August, she dropped a split decision to Alexa Grasso in Mexico City. Prior to that, she won a split call against Esparza in Halifax to rebound from a submission loss to Cortney Casey at UFC 206 in August 2016.
