Amanda Nunes & Megan Anderson Are Set to Fight Again
After their planned bout for UFC 256 was cancelled, Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson have a new date for their title fight.
Nunes – Anderson set for UFC 259
The bantamweight and featherweight champ was set to defend the 145 title against Anderson at UFC 256 earlier this month. But, health issues forced Nunes to withdraw and the fight was postponed.
UFC officials have confirmed to ESPN that Nunes – Anderson has been added to the line-up of the March 6th, UFC 259 card.
Nunes (20-4) will be fighting for the first time since June, when she worked her way to a decision win over Felicia Spencer. The champ-champ has won 11 in a row.
Anderson (11-4) has locked up a fight with Nunes thanks to back-to-back finishes of Zarah Fairn Dos Santos and most recently, Norma Dumont Viana. The former Invicta FC champ is 3-2 in her last 5 outings.
