UFC Fighter Megan Anderson (11-4)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Megan Anderson is one of the best featherweights in the world and is a future UFC champion.

Anderson went pro November 2013 and a year later she was a champion, capturing the Roshambo MMA Featherweight Championship. She then fought for Invicta and within three years became the undisputed Invicta FC Featherweight champion.

Anderson then was signed by the UFC and was scheduled to make her promotional debut against Cris Cyborg at UFC 214 on 29 July 2017. She pulled out of the fight and ended up making her debut a year later in 2018.

Anderson is a finisher. In her 11 wins, she has only gone to the judges twice. Her most recent win via KO.

As of now, Felicia Spencer is getting the next shot at the title but Anderson is next. When asked what to expect from her next fight she said, “Fireworks.”
