Megan Anderson Out of Women's Featherweight Title Fight at UFC 214

UFC 214 is now set to be headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between champion Daniel Cormier and returning ex-titleholder Jon Jones. But like I always do, I will come back stronger and better than before.

Anderson has yet to disclose the reason for her departure from the fight and only states, "personal reasons" in her official statement on Twitter. "She is as tough as they come and will bring the fight to me the entire time".

Ranked bantamweight Tonya Evinger (19-5) will replace Anderson in the fight, which serves as UFC 214's co-main event. She was expected to fight in the inaugural women's featherweight title fight at UFC 208 in February, but turned the opportunity down because she didn't want to compete until March.

With Anderson out of the picture, the UFC welcomed Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger to the card where she will bump up to 145 pounds to face Cyborg in July.

Saudi Arabia's Mohammed bin Salman appointed Crown Prince: SPA
While working as defense minister, he oversaw the Saudi-led military coalition against the Houthi rebels from Yemen. Even as deputy crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman had been amassing powers ever since his father took the throne.

De Randamie refused to fight Cyborg which prompted the UFC to draft in Anderson from Invicta.

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. The Anderson-Justino matchup was announced just eight days ago.

Still, Okamoto called it "a huge development" for the fighter, who was previously set to headline an Invicta event on July 15. The Missouri native has been fighting professionally since 2006. She has since won 17 straight contests and is widely considered to be among the top 2 or 3 female fighters in the world, pound for pound.

UFC 214 is headlined by UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones in what will settle the score for the light heavyweight division once and for all.
