Megan Anderson Has No Plans To Fight Any Time Soon

Former UFC women’s featherweight title challenger Megan Anderson has stopped short of saying she is retiring from MMA, but has revealed that she doesn’t see fighting again on her horizon at the moment.

“For all those that are asking and continue to ask me daily, I have no plans to fight right now,” Anderson wrote on Twitter. “I’m not saying that I will never fight again, but at this point in my life, I’m loving everything else I’m doing.

“From gaming and streaming, working as an analyst for ESPN and Invicta, and currently filming my first major feature film, I couldn’t be happier and fighting really isn’t on my mind.

“I’m currently not affiliated with any gym, I’m not signed to any promotion right now and haven’t been pursuing a new fight contract. I appreciate the love and interest from everyone hoping to see me in the cage again, but hopefully this answers your questions for now.”

The 31-year-old hasn’t been seen in the Octagon since losing to Amanda Nunes by a first round submission in her 145lb title challenge in March of last year.

Anderson had been on a two fight winning streak prior to that against Zarah Fairn dos Santos and Norma Dumont, leaving the former Invicta FC 145lb champion with a 3-3 run in the UFC, and 11-5 career record.
