Megan Anderson Out of Women's Featherweight Title Fight at UFC 214

Megan Anderson pulled from fight with Cris 'Cyborg' Justino because of 'personal issues'

The promotion announced that Cris Cyborg would now be squaring off with current Invicta bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger for the UFC's vacant women's featherweight title at UFC 214 on July 29 in Anaheim, California.

Anderson was previously scheduled to put the her Invicta FC title on the line against Helena Kolesnyk at Invicta FC 24 before getting the call to fight Cyborg.

With Anderson out of the picture, the UFC welcomed Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger to the card where she will bump up to 145 pounds to face Cyborg in July.

Evinger had originally been scheduled to face Helena "Pretty" Kolesnyk as the main event for Invicta FC 24, they are now searching for her replacement.




Evinger (19-5, 1 NC) hasn't lost since 2011. The thing that excites me the most about fighting for the UFC belt, is I know the fans of Brazil have a sense of pride when they see us bring their belts back home! "I even said I'd go down to 125, but the opportunity was at 145 and I'm definitely willing to beat up on some '45ers".

"I think I match up better than any of her other opponents", Evinger added, while discussing her bout with Justino. As for Tonya, she's a great opponent. "We're tough and we come out there to fight". "My fans appreciate the fact that this fight is going to be for the belt, but the fact that the UFC had [Germaine de Randamie] as champion and not me has never been a problem for me".

Later on Tuesday evening, Anderson herself took to social media to further explain her withdrawal and to promise that she will return at at a later date to "shock the world".

UFC 214 is headlined by UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones in what will settle the score for the light heavyweight division once and for all.
