Megan Anderson out, Tanya Evinger in for title fight vs. 'Cyborg' Justino at UFC 214

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.

More to come.
