the ultimate fighter 20

The amazing run by No. 14 seed Randa Markos continued Wednesday night on The Ultimate Fighter 20, as she submitted Felice Herrig and became the first semifinalist on the show.

In a battle of Team Anthony Pettis fighters, Markos was able to lock up a first round submission. She’ll face the winner of Rose Namajunas-Joanne Calderwood.

Markos upset third-seed Tecia Torres in the opening round, earning a decision victory. It is possible that she fights Torres for the first-ever UFC strawweight title, as she is now on the other side of the bracket after being allowed back in as an injury replacement.

Highlights from the Markos-Herrig fight can be found below. Next week, No. 4 Jessica Penne meets fifth-seed Aisling Daly in another match up of Team Pettis fighters.
