Cyborg to face Evinger at UFC 214 after Anderson pulls out

Cyborg to face Evinger at UFC 214 after Anderson pulls out

Tonya Evinger will replace Megan Anderson to face Crisiane Justino for the women's 145-pound title at UFC 214, the UFC announced tonight.

It's an interesting turn of events for Cyborg, who ranted and raved to get this opportunity against Anderson after Germaine de Randamie openly said she would not fight her. "I think she owes me a fight. We were supposed to fight before and then it'll be unbelievable, we're gonna fight for title belt in the UFC at 145". Evinger is the current Invicta FC bantamweight champion and has won each of her last 10 fights overall. Evinger has recorded 15 finishes in her 19 career victories. "I just knew it, man".

I am no stranger to struggle and this is the biggest struggle I have faced yet, but like I always do, I will come back stronger and better than before and I will be coming straight for Cris, the Title and becoming the face of the UFC 145lb division. Cyborg has not lost since her first pro bout, which occured all the way back in 2005.

Ronaldo's trouble coincided with the same Madrid-based prosecutor's office accusing Mourinho of two counts of tax fraud. Russia's players attend a training session at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow, Russia, Tuesday, June 20, 2017 .

Although the UFC was reluctant to sign her, Evinger still knew the Justino fight would come up eventually.

"Tonya is a top-10 bantamweight and certainly deserves to be in a big platform. July 29th, I am expecting Tonya Evinger to give me the type of fight that can help us both earn our first UFC performance bonus". She was expected to fight in the inaugural women's featherweight title fight at UFC 208 in February, but turned the opportunity down because she didn't want to compete until March. She was coming from two losses and fought for the belt, and then the Holland girl can get a hold of the belt, she doesn't fight at 145 either - seven years I don't think she fought (at featherweight). I don't agree with this fight and them fighting for the belt because each girl is now below 145 pounds.

Anderson is not believed to have suffered an injury, but instead cited "personal reasons" for dropping out of the fight. "I am sure my fight July 29th will be one of the most watched fights in Brazilian MMA this year!"
