Cris Cyborg to Fight Tonya Evinger For Title at UFC 214

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

Meanwhile, Megan Anderson has issued a statement after withdrawing for the fight, and though she stops short of explaining exactly why she bowed out, she is still insisting that she'll fight for the title at a later date.

Previously slated for the night's co-main event, UFC veteran Milana Dudieva (11-5) and fellow flyweight Mara "Kunoichici" Romero Borella (10-4, 1 NC) debut as the headline attraction at Invicta FC 24 on Saturday, July 15. As for Tonya, she's a great opponent.

Evinger (19-5, 1 NC), who will move up 10 pounds to fight Justino, won the Invicta FC 135-pound championship nearly two years ago with a fourth-round TKO of Irene Aldana.

Cyborg had been scheduled to fight Megan Anderson at UFC 214 on July 29, but the Australian was forced to pull out of the fight. The Brazilian star's overall record now stands at 17-1 with one no contest. Evinger has already defended her championship three times in Invicta FC, defeating Pannie Kianzad, Yana Kunitskaya and Colleen Schneider. She is considered one of the most unsafe female fighters in MMA today.

Handel told Channel 2 Action News that she looks forward to getting to work and "remains humbled by this extraordinary privilege". The Georgia representative will be sworn in at the same time as SC special election victor Ralph Norman according to the report.

The UFC featherweight division was kicked off with a fight between former bantamweight champion Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie. She's been winning her past 10 fights and is an example of how the world rankings should be independent from the UFC's rankings.

The bout, which was to be Anderson's first in the UFC since signing from the Invicta promotion, was set to be for the women's featherweight title. Cyborg has not lost since her first pro bout, which occured all the way back in 2005.

UFC 214 will be headlined by the highly anticipated rematch for the light heavyweight title as Daniel Cormier will defend against the returning Jon Jones.
