UFC Nashville: Megan Anderson Takes Aim At Cindy Dandois

Current Invicta FC 145-pound Queen Megan Anderson has lashed out toward a former opponent and UFC newcomer.

Invicta featherweight champion Megan Anderson wasted no time in lashing out towards Cindy Dandois after Dandois lost her UFC debut on Saturday night to Alexis Davis in Nashville.

After the fight, a barrage of tweets were directed at Dandois.

Anderson (8-2) has been longing for a chance to compete in the UFC and avenge her loss to Dandois and she didn’t hide her opinion about Dandois, suggesting she was only being given the opportunity in the UFC based on her friendship with former UFC bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate.

The Invicta champion tweeted out a few jabs at Dandois after her loss, taking aim at her striking after Dandois was clearly overmatched when her grappling failed to give her any advantage over Davis.

Anderson has been clamouring for a chance to exact revenge for the loss she suffered at the hands of Dandois via a triangle choke at Invicta FC 14 in Sept. 2015. The Australian striker has been vocal in stating she was somewhat raw for that fight and has taken every opportunity to take jabs at Dandois, Dana White, the UFC, or anyone that will listen.

Anderson is still not signed by the UFC, but that could soon change as the organisation looks to fill up the roster of the newest division created by the UFC.

Germaine de Randamie claimed the inaugural title over former bantamweight champion Holly Holm at UFC 208 and rumours have been circulating that de Randamie will defend that title against what many consider the greatest female fighter of all time and the former Invicta featherweight champion, Cris Cyborg in Anaheim, California.

The fight hasn’t been officially announced by the promotion, but Cyborg posted on her Instagram account that the fight would take place. This could just be a negotiating ploy on Cyborg’s part, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of options with the roster being so limited.

The 27 year old Australian lost her Invicta debut to Dandois then would reel off four straight wins to claim the interim Invicta FC featherweight title with a win over Charmaine Tweet via TKO at Invicta FC 21 in Jan. 2017. Anderson was elevated to the regular champion when Cyborg vacated the title.

A potential rematch between the two could well be on its way.
