Cyborg had been begging to get her shot to fight on the July card with the only hesitation being if she could get cleared from her positive USADA test earlier in the year.

Since she won the belt, however, de Randamie has dealt with a hand injury and recently declared that she would not put her belt on the line against Cyborg because she was a "proven cheater". De Randamie won the bout in controversial fashion at UFC 208, and then outright refused to face Justino.

When Germaine de Randamie beat Holly Holm to win the inaugural UFC women's featherweight championship at UFC 209 in February, the fight to make was de Randamie and long-time No. 1 ranked 145-pound fighter Cris "Cyborg" Justino. "UFC maintains that any champion is expected to accept fights against the top contenders in their respective weight classes in order to maintain the integrity of the sport". "The last two girls who fought for the belt came up from 135-pounds, with one of them ranked ten and the other having now gone 1-3 in her last four fights".

Arguably the P4P greatest female fighter on Earth impressed so much in her stellar promotional debut against Leslie Smith that she was promoted to headliner status for her second outing against Lina Landsberg. Justino, 31, vacated the title in March to pursue a UFC career, which allowed Anderson (8-2), 27, to become the Invicta's interim featherweight champion after her knockout victory over Charmaine Tweet in January. With "The Iron Lady" removed from the throne, the UFC has announced that UFC 214 on July 29, will feature a bout for the vacant crown between "Cyborg" Cristiane Justino and Invicta Fighting Championships beltholder Megan Anderson.


Justino is regarded as the best women's fighter in the world and been deemed unbeatable by fight fans. On Monday morning, when news surfaced that she was being stripped of the title in lieu of a matchup between Cris Cyborg and Megan Anderson at UFC 214, she didn't stay quiet for long.

"As many of you will know, the UFC has stripped me from the belt", she wrote.

"Well, I hear you thinking again 'She's scared!" The Anderson affair will be her first proper featherweight contest in the Octagon.
