Canada’s Randa Markos is no longer a UFC Fighter.

The Canadian strawweight known as the “Quiet Storm” fought out her most recent contract at UFC Vegas 41. Following her win over Livia Renata Souza, the promotion and fighter have parted ways, with the UFC opting not to re-sign the veteran fighter.

MMA Fighting was first to report the news.

Markos (11-11-1) joined the UFC as part of The Ultimate Fighter 20 in 2014, which introduced the women’s 115lb division to the promotion. Though she came up short on the show, Markos along with the bulk of the cast joined the promotion, and she has fought consistently ever since.

Overall, Markos posted a 7-10-1 record inside the octagon, spending most of her time with the UFC trading wins and losses until she hit a four-fight skid that started last year. That stretch, the worst of her professional career, saw her drop fights to Amanda Ribas, Mackenzie Dern, Kanako Murata, and Luana Pinheiro.

While the skid was snapped with her win over “Livinha” Souza, it appears that wasn’t enough to keep her with the promotion — though she could still re-sign with the company down the line.

The 36-year old holds notable wins over former UFC champ Carla Esparza and ex-Invicta champ Angela Hill, and fought to a draw with top contender Marina Rodriguez.
