Megan Anderson will not make the move to the UFC, as she’ll instead defend her title at Invicta FC 24.
The promotion announced recently that Anderson and Helena Holesnyk will meet at Invicta FC 24 for the featherweight title on July 15. The event streams live from Kansas City on UFC Fight Pass.
Anderson had been pushing for a match with Cris Cyborg inside the Octagon, but will instead meet the unbeaten Kolesnyk in her first title defense. She won the interim belt in January over Charmaine Tweet and was crowned unified champion after Cyborg vacated the title.
