A featherweight title fight between two-weight champion Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson has been rebooked to March 6, according to UFC officials.
The 145-pound championship fight was originally scheduled to take place at UFC 256 on Dec. 12, however Nunes was forced to withdraw because of health issues. The UFC has not formally announced a name or location for the March 6 card, however it's expected to be a UFC 259 pay-per-view event.
Originally from Brazil now fighting out of Florida, Nunes (20-4) is the No. 1 pound-for-pound female fighter in the world according to ESPN. This will mark the second consecutive defense of her featherweight title. She also holds the UFC's 135-pound bantamweight championship, which she last defended against Germaine de Randamie in December 2019.
Anderson (10-4) is a former Invicta FC featherweight champion, with a 3-2 record in the UFC. She has finished both of her last two fights in the first round, and has recorded finishes in all but one of her pro wins.
