Anderson out of title shot with Cyborg

Posted July 01, 2017

Cris "Cyborg" Justino will still fight for the UFC women's featherweight title on July 29 but she has a new opponent.

Anderson last fought at Invicta FC 21 in January, defeating Charmaine Tweet to win the promotion's interim featherweight title created in Justino's absence.

And yet here's another turn in the saga of the UFC women's featherweight championship.

"I am disappointed I won't get an opportunity to fight Megan July 29th", Cyborg said.

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. "I think my style is really unpredictable".

The 145-pound title will still be on the line, despite Evinger having never fought at the 145-pound limit. "We're tough and we come out there to fight". "She is as tough as they come and will bring the fight to me the entire time".

The victor of the title fight will be the new featherweight champion after the UFC stripped Germaine de Randamie of the title.

Seasoned bantamweight Evinger has been on a roll the last five years and is undefeated since September 2011.

The fight is for the title that Germaine de Randamie was stripped of after she refused to defend her title against Justino.

So, this is a big change to the upcoming card, and Evinger deserves a ton of praise for agreeing to face one of the most feared fighters in the UFC, on one month's notice.

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".

The showdown with Justino will be a co-main event at UFC 214 alongside the light heavyweight championship between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier.
