Amanda Nunes pulls out of UFC 256 featherweight fight against Megan Anderson
UFC star Amanda Nunes has withdrawn from her featherweight title defence against Megan Anderson at next month’s UFC 256.
The 32 year-old two-weight UFC champion has pulled out for ‘undisclosed reasons,' according to multiple sources.
She was scheduled to defend her 145-pound title against Anderson on December 12 in Las Vegas.
Anderson, who has come off the back of a two-fight winning streak, wrote on Twitter: "Wishing Amanda a speedy recovery. UFC are rescheduling the bout for a date early next year.
“The goal remains the same . We'll be ready.”
UFC have not confirmed the cancellation or a new main event.
Nunes last competed in June when she beat Felicia Spencer via unanimous decision. The star has not lost a fight since September 2014.
