Megan Anderson knows she will have options in free agency.
In the co-main event of UFC 259, Anderson fought Amanda Nunes for the featherweight title and suffered a first-round submission loss. After the loss, it was revealed she fought out her UFC contract and the promotion chose not to re-sign her.
Entering free agency, Anderson is happy with what she accomplished in the UFC and knows she will fight again.
“In light of the news that came out yesterday, I wanted to address my fans, and say thank you for all the love and support you have sent me over the past few days,” Anderson wrote.
“Saturday night was fight number 6 of my 6 fight deal with the UFC. I had an amazing run with the promotion, culminating in a UFC world title fight,” Megan Anderson added. “If you know me and the journey I have been on, just to reach the pinnacle of the sport is something I am incredibly proud of,” Megan Anderson continued. “I want to thank my team and everyone at the UFC for the past 3 years, it’s been amazing to perform for my fans on such a big stage.
“I’m looking to rest up and heal from my injuries before I decide what is next for my MMA career,” Anderson concluded. “Regardless of what the UFC decides to do with the Women’s 145 division, there are plenty of opportunities for me across the world to continue to do what I love. Thank you all, and stay tuned!”
Megan Anderson ended up going 3-3 in the UFC. In her UFC tenure, she beat Cat Zingano, Zarah Fairn dos Santos, and Norma Dumont. Her losses came to Nunes, Holly Holm, and Felicia Spencer. She is 10-5 as a pro and is the former Invicta FC featherweight champion. Where she will sign is uncertain at this point.
