The announcement comes just a few days after her loss against Amanda Nunes at UFC 259.
Megan Anderson, who only on Saturday fought for the featherweight title against Amanda Nunes, is no longer under the promotion’s contract. The towering Australian took on Amanda Nunes in the co-main event of UFC 259 and was defeated in just a couple of minutes, via. submission.
More recently, on Tuesday, Anderson took to Twitch to confirm that she will no longer be a part of the UFC, adding that the UFC would be scrapping off the women’s featherweight division soon – which the UFC has vehemently denied.
Megan Anderson is currently nursing a couple of injuries!
Megan Anderson made her UFC debut at UFC 225 in June 2018, against Holly Holm. She lost the match via. unanimous decision. She bounced back at UFC 232 against Cat Zingano winning via. TKO. Then a loss against Felicia Spencer was followed by two brilliant victories, especially the one against Norma Dumont which showcased her power. And finally, she got a chance to fight for the title against Amanda Nunes, which she eventually lost.
With a 3-3 record in the UFC, the former Invicta FC Women’s Featherweight Champion, will have to find a new home, although she is still free to sign a new agreement with the UFC. Given that she is only 31, and with a decent UFC resume, it won’t take much time before Megan joins another promotion. Her team however have claimed that she has been nursing some injuries, and any move will be plotted only after they heal a bit.
What do you think the future holds for Megan Anderson?
