Megan Anderson: Hottest Photos Of The UFC Fighter

UFC women’s featherweight Megan Anderson is looking to show the world that she is one to watch out for in the mixed martial arts community. The former Invicta FC champion is finally set to make her promotional debut at UFC 225 on Saturday, June 9 against former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm. Anderson is returning to action following a lengthy lay-off that has been protected with secrecy.

“I’ll probably never tell anyone,” Anderson said in an interview with ESPN. “It definitely makes it challenging, because people are asking and I want to be careful about certain things. At the end of the day, I have a right to my privacy. If people don’t want to respect that, I guess I don’t really want them following me anyway.

“If I want to have some privacy on this, I’m entitled to that. I don’t need to share every part of my life.”

Anderson has also admitted to being a bit nervous about the upcoming bout.

“We always kind of thought it was going to be Cris when we came back,” Anderson said. “It was definitely a shock when they wanted to go in a different direction. My management called and really dragged it out. He said, ‘You’re going to be fighting June 9, in Chicago … ‘ I was like, ‘Oh my God, get to the name.’

“I was pretty cool talking to my manager, when he said ‘Holly Holm.’ But when I got off the phone, I was so excited I made myself nauseous.”

UFC 225 — which takes place at United Center in Chicago — is headlined by a middleweight title fight between champion Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero. In the co-main event, Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington square off for the interim welterweight crown.
