By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

UFC Fight Night 89 in Ottawa has gotten another Canadian fighter added to the card, as the UFC announced on Thursday that Iranian born Canadian Randa Markos will take on Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger on June 18.

Markos entered the UFC out of The Ultimate Fighter 20 tournament, surprising some during the season with a couple of upset wins. However, since entering the UFC proper, she’s lost two of three fights, with decision losses to Jessica Penne and Karolina Kowalkiewicz sandwiching a decision win over Aisling Daly.

Jones-Lybarger made her UFC debut in December on the strength of a four-fight winning streak in RFA, but she dropped a decision to Tecia Torres to snap that winning streak.

Both seek a victory on this Fox Sports 1 card, the UFC’s first ever in Ottawa. The event will be headlined by the welterweight contender fight between Rory MacDonald and Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.
