On Saturday night, a new women’s mixed martial arts star emerged. Megan Anderson claimed the interim featherweight championship with a brutal finish of Charmaine Tweet in the main event of Invicta FC 21.
Anderson showed impressive standup on her feet and some incredible power that left her opponent retreating with a mask of blood before the referee stepped in to stop the fight.
Following the big win, Anderson took advantage of her time on the make and sent a direct message to UFC president Dana White, Holly Holm and Germaine De Randamie, saying she is coming for the UFC’s featherweight title next.
