Megan Anderson Out, Tonya Evinger in Against Cris Cyborg at UFC 214

We ALLLLLMOST got to see Megan Anderson the Invicta featherweight champion fight Cris “Cyborg” Justino. but instead we’ll be watching the Invicta bantamweight champion square off with the baddest woman on the planet. Unfortunately Anderson has had to remove herself from competition citing personal reasons via her twitter account earlier today.Evinger, meanwhile, enters the match-up riding an 11-fight unbeaten streak of her own, including two defenses of the Invicta bantamweight championship.She was thought to have lost the title via tapout to Yana Kunitskaya in November after the referee said she couldn’t put her foot on Kunitskaya’s face to fend off an armbar submission.Representatives for Anderson, 27, told ESPN she is “looking forward to fighting Cyborg for a UFC title at a later date”, but they declined further comment on her current status. Cyborg on the other hand has finished all but one fight via strikes since making her professional debut back in 2005.That opened the door for the UFC to sign Anderson, who has fought for Invicta since 2015 and also holds a title there.A light heavyweight championship fight between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier is slated to headline UFC 214 inside Honda Center. Long seen as the most dominant female fighter on the planet, Cyborg made her UFC debut in May of previous year, defeating Leslie Smith via first-round TKO.
