The UFC's women's featherweight division is set and their champion crowned, the only problem is that there's only three people in the division. While new champ Germaine de Randamie goes back-and-forth on hand surgery and Cris Cyborg gets ready to return, Megan Anderson is showing up to UFC events hoping to get her name called up. She's Invicta's scrappy interim featherweight champion, which makes it seem like it's a no-brainer signing her next, but she's being patient about a UFC contract.
"If it happens, it happens. Our paths will cross when they're meant to cross and I think we'll do great things together," Anderson said. "We're all going to fight each other eventually. It's just a matter of when that will happen."
While she's not in the UFC yet, she's one of the four title holders in her division spread across the sport like Dragonballs. From wanting to debut in Australia, to the controversy of #GermainedeRandamie's title win, Anderson covered the gamut in the 15 minutes she gave media at #UFC209. During that time, she was vocal about fighting all the top women, but personally thinks #CrisCyborg is the true uncrowned champion of them all.
"I think she would like that fight to happen now, but I'm contracted to Invicta at the moment, she's with the UFC, and they're not allowing her to go back to Invicta. So, unless they come to us, there's not much we can do, but we'll be ready for that if and when it happens."
"I would love to step up in competition and to fight Holly. She's a world class boxer and she's been fighting for a very long time. I'd love to give all those fans who feel I'm not at that level yet, to show them what I've got. That I'm world class with my striking, my wrestling and my ground game."

"I like that match. That's an exciting match-up. We're both strikers, which is very exciting. I think that would be a very exciting fight with the fans, and I have no doubt my hand would be raised."
