UFC 221 may get a second title fight added to the bill because UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino could be defending the gold against Megan Anderson.
It was Cyborg who revealed the potential bout via Instagram:
Cyborg (19-1-0-1NC) would be making the second defense of her championship, last defending it against Holly Holm at UFC 219. Cyborg is also a former Invicta FC Featherweight Champion and Strikeforce Women’s Featherweight Champion. Cyborg hasn’t suffered a defeat in over twelve years, which came to Erica Paes at Showfight 2.
Anderson (8-2-0) would going to be making her UFC debut in this fight and the competitor is also the current Invicta FC Featherweight Champion. Anderson is also a former Invicta FC Interim Featherweight Champion, but became the undisputed champion once Cyborg went to the UFC. Anderson would also enter the bout on the strength of a four fight winning streak, which includes a win over UFC veteran Peggy Morgan.
UFC 221 takes place on Saturday, February 10 from the Perth Arena in Perth, Australia with Robert Whittaker and Luke Rockhold headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
