Randa @randamma took on a very physical Kira Kirsh @kira_kirsh in a 3 round MMA contest held in London ON Saturday night Oct.26th.
Here's the play by play from Top MMA News
Round 1 Kirsh comes out working the jab but it’s clear Marcos wants this on the mat. A big trip takedown puts Marcos into a tight half-guard. Marcos is taking her time to smother and work for position. Finally she opens up with punches as Kirsh reaches for a leg. Now Marcos is in side control, dropping knees to the body. Gorgeous pass to mount and she’s dropping vicious punches. Marcos takes back control and lands even more vicious bombs to end the round. Could have been stopped. Top MMA News scores the round 10-8 for Marcos
Round 2 Marcos throws punches to open the round and quickly gets control of Kirsh again as they battle along the cage. Marcos has underhooks but is struggling to get the fight to the mat. They struggle for position and fall to the mat. Kirsh takes the back and is looking for a rear-naked choke. She gives up on the choke and scrambles to half guard. Another awkward scramble against the cage results in Marcos taking top position and moving to side control. Kirsh tries an armbar as the round ends. Top MMA News scores the round 10-9 for Kirsh
Round 3 Again we start with a few jabs that lead to grappling along the cage with Marcos in control. She’s mixing in knees to the legs now but nothing too damaging. It’s a stalemate against the cage and neither is landing anything and the ref breaks them up. Kirsh rushes forward with big punches but gets caught herself. The two girls are standing directly in front of each other throwing bombs at this point. Wild end to the round.
