Megan Anderson issues a statement of loss to Amanda Nunes

Megan Anderson intends to be in the after a blowout loss to Amanda Nunes UFC 259 Co-Main Event.

Anderson (11-5 MMA, 3-3 UFC) came into the fight in Las Vegas as the biggest underdog of two division champions Nunes (21-4 MMA, 14-1 UFC) in the women’s featherweight title at the UFC Apex on Saturday. The result showed why, when “The Lioness” made its way there a submission win in the first round.

It only took Nunes a couple of ticks over two minutes to hit Anderson and then bolt an arm bar to the floor to finish the job. It certainly wasn’t the feat the Australian challenger had hoped for, but she promised to come back stronger in her first few comments after the loss on social media (via) Twitter):

This game has the highest highs and the lowest lows. This was the one we wanted to win, but it’s the fighting game.

We’ll be coming back

There are fair questions now about what the future holds for Anderson. The UFC allowed her to fight for the title for the final bout of her UFC contract, and it is entirely possible that this marked the end of her tenure with the promotion.

Anderson has fought a record six bouts in the UFC women’s featherweight division, and little or no one remains in terms of new matchups. The division has been life sustaining in the UFC since its inception, and it remains to be seen how the UFC handles this after Nunes cleared the line of potential opponents.
