Just days after challenging Amanda Nunes for the UFC Featherweight Championship, Megan Anderson is no longer under contract with the UFC.
The former title challenger published a statement on Wednesday confirming the news that her contract finished.
“Saturday night was fight number 6 of my 6 fight deal with the UFC,” said Anderson via social media. “I had an amazing run with the promotion, culminating in a UFC world title fight.”
Anderson competed under UFC’s featherweight division since 2018. She lost at last Saturday’s pay-per-view event, getting submitted by Nunes within a round.
Anderson, a former Invicta FC Featherweight Champion, finishes her current UFC contract with an even promotional record of three wins and three losses.
Anderson has not mentioned her specific plan going forward, although she has mentioned she aims to continue her MMA career in the near future.
“I’m looking to rest up and heal from my injuries before I decide what is next for my MMA career … There are plenty of opportunities for me across the world to continue to do what I love,” said Anderson.
