Megan Anderson


Cruises to victory at UFC 243
October 5, 2019
Anderson defeated Zarah Fairn dos Santos via submission (triangle choke) at 3:57 of Round 1 at UFC 243 on Saturday in Melbourne, Australia.
Anderson has been overrated from the very start, but she is still going to handle pure roster depth like dos Santos with zero issues. Anderson has looked particularly uncomfortable on the mat during her time in the UFC, but she dominated in that area on Saturday. While the victory was an impressive one for Anderson in her native Australia in front of family and friends, it ultimately tells us nothing regarding her future potential. She needs another strong performance her next time out against a legitimate opponent.

Schedules fight in home country

Anderson will face Zarah Fairn dos Santos at UFC 243 in Melbourne, reports.
The featherweight matchup features home-soil confidence for Anderson and a UFC debut for dos Santos. Anderson most recently lost to Felicia Spencer at UFC Fight Night 152 via rear-naked choke submission.
Submitted by Felecia Spencer
May 18, 2019
Anderson lost to Felecia Spencer via submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:24 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Rochester, New York.
What a disaster. Knowing full well that the much shorter Spencer would try to close the distance against her, Anderson found herself on the mat in short order, and her ground awareness looked as poor as ever. Anderson legitimately appeared as if she hadn't trained a day on the mat in her entire career. She joined the company last June with the reputation of being a big-time prospect, but the truth of the matter is that Anderson simply isn't very good. Even in the painfully thin UFC women's featherweight division, Anderson is miles and miles from the title picture.
Tabbed to fight Felicia Spencer
March 26, 2019
Anderson will fight Felicia Spencer in a featherweight bout at UFC Rochester on May 19, reports.
Anderson is coming off her first UFC victory, a win over Cat Zingano at UFC 232 via TKO, and looking to make it two in a row when she faces Spencer -- who is making her UFC debut -- in New York. Things won't come easy for Anderson, as Spencer is the current Invicta FC champion at 145 points and undefeated (6-0) as a professional.
Wins with odd TKO at UFC 232
December 29, 2018
Anderson defeated Cat Zingano via TKO (referee stoppage) at 1:01 of Round 1 at UFC 232 on Saturday in Los Angeles.
This was an odd stoppage. The fighters had barely begun to exchange when Anderson threw a kick. Her toe poked Zingano in the eye. Zingano was not able to continue and the referee stopped the fight. Eye pokes due to kicks are not treated as violations.
Slated to fight Cat Zingano at UFC 232
October 17, 2018
Anderson will fight Cat Zingano in a featherweight bout at UFC 232 on Dec. 29.
Anderson, a former Invicta FC featherweight champion, will return to the octagon for the first time since losing her UFC debut to Holly Holm via unanimous decision in June. Her opponent, Zingano, has just one win in her last four UFC fights, coming via unanimous decision over Marion Reneau in her most recent fight.
