And yet another turn in the saga of the UFC women’s featherweight championship.
Tanya Evinger will replace Megan Anderson and face Crisiane Justino for the women’s 145-pound title at UFC 214. The UFC cited “personal reasons” for Anderson as the reason for the change when it made the announcement tonight.
The title fight will co-headline the pay-per-view card, which takes place at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Anderson issued a statement on Twitter after the announcement was made.
