Megan Anderson is one of the toughest women in the world. At just 26-years-old, she's already an established MMA fighter holding a 5-2 professional record, including a huge KO win earlier this year in Invicta FC.

Despite that fearsome reputation though, both inside and out of the cage, she's known as a huge comic book fan. She's very often seen wearing superhero-themed clothes to her weigh-ins and fights.

I also liked the fact that the guy always gets the girl and they always have a happy ending and they beat the bad guy and all of that stuff. I like the happy endings so I think that’s what helps draw me to them.

Megan might prefer the Marvel characters over DC's, but she's certainly a fan of both. Case in point:

One thing's for sure, Megan Anderson is a top contender for the most badass comic book fan on the planet!
