Holly Holm Set To Face Megan Anderson At UFC 225

Even though Cris Cyborg wanted a shot at her, Megan Anderson will be facing former champion Holly Holm at UFC 225 on June 9th in Chicago.

Anderson, who was set to face Cyborg in 2017, had to back out of a potential fight due to personal issues, and has not fought since January 2017 while a member of the Invicta FC roster, winning their featherweight title.

Holm, last seen in the Octagon at UFC 219 in a decision loss to Cris Cyborg, has been 1-4 since defeating Ronda Rousey in 2015.

UFC 225 brings the UFC to Chicago, with  a middleweight title headliner between champion Robert Whittaker and challenger Yoel Romero. In the co-main event, Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington will face off for the interim welterweight title.
