Anderson out of title shot with Cyborg

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

Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino has a new UFC 214 opponent after her original foe, Invicta FC featherweight champion Megan Anderson, withdrew from the event for personal reasons. Germaine de Randamie was the original champion after she defeated former bantamweight champion Holly Holm via decision.

Milana Dudieva vs. Mara Romero Borella now headlines that card, the all-women's promotion announced shortly after the UFC confirmed Evinger's title shot. In steps Invicta's 135-pound champion Tonya Evinger.

Evinger is no stranger to accepting the toughest fights offered to her, which is why Cyborg is more than happy with the replacement opponent she received.

Evinger (19-5, 1 NC) is unbeaten since 2011.

The blaze has grown to 2.5 square miles (6.5 sq. kilometers) since it broke out outside San Luis Obispo on Monday afternoon. The fire is burning in communities around Prescott, a mountain city about 100 miles (160.9 kilometres ) north of Phoenix.

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. "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". As for Tonya, she's a great opponent.

Justino (17-1, 1 NC) is 2-0 in the UFC, finishing Lina Lansberg and Leslie Smith in 140-pound catchweight bouts in 2016 despite being a natural 145-pounder. "I think she owes me a 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".

"I am determined and resolved to make history and shock the world". "I'm prepared to fight anyone". It's a frame of mind. "Maybe when Conor Mcgregor returns in December we could give the fans that fight". UFC 214 takes place on July 29th from Anaheim, California.

A light heavyweight championship fight between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier is slated to headline UFC 214 inside Honda Center.
