Megan Anderson releases statement after UFC Rochester loss

At UFC Rochester on Saturday, a rare women’s featherweight fight was taking place as Megan Anderson was welcoming Felicia Spencer to the Octagon.

Although Anderson was the favorite in the fight, it didn’t turn out like that. Rather, Spencer dominated from the get-go where she was jabbing the Aussie until she got ahold of her back and submitted her in the first round.

Now, after a few days to sit on the loss, Anderson has released a statement on the fight.

“This sport comes with the highest highs and the lowest lows… Last night wasn’t my night. I am so proud and happy for Felicia. I know how much this meant to her and I am so excited to see what’s next in her career. Thank you to my family/coaches/team for everything. You push me to become a better person both inside and outside of the cage every day. Your unwavering love and support means the absolute world to me. To my teammates @grantdawsonkgd and @zakcummings a HUGE congrats on your amazing wins. I’m proud to stand by your sides and do battle.” – Megan Anderson on Instagram.

With the loss, Anderson fell to 9-4 as a pro. Now, what is next for her is up in the air. There are not too many fights to be had at featherweight and a logical fight could very well be to rematch Cat Zingano. The two fought back at UFC 232 where Anderson threw a head kick where her toe hit Zingano’s eye and ended the fight by TKO and gave Anderson her first win inside the Octagon.

But, it was a legitimate win to show she still has potential in the division and can be a title contender in a shallow featherweight division. No matter what, Anderson has got to win her next fight if she wants a crack at UFC gold.
