Cris "Cyborg" Gets New Opponent For UFC 214

Cyborg to face Evinger at UFC 214 after Anderson pulls out Cris 'Cyborg' Justino to Fight Tonya Evinger over Megan Anderson at UFC 214

The promotion has revealed that Brazilian Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino will now face fellow Invicta FC alum Tonya Evinger for the vacant featherweight title on Saturday, July 29, in Anaheim, Calif.

Instead, bantamweight fighter Tonya Evinger (19-5) will replace Anderson for UFC 214's co-main event. Tonya Evinger successfully appealed her loss to the Missouri Athletic Commission and had it overturned as a no contest and retained her title.

Anderson became the Invicta featherweight champion after she defeated Charmaine Tweet in January. Now, Cyborg will be taking on Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger. Her most recent victory earned her the interim Invicta FC featherweight title, which was later installed to full time champion. Six years to the day, she gets to test herself against arguably the most ferocious female striker of all-time.

Justino boasts a 17-1 record and would be a formidable opponent for even the best UFC foes.

Representatives for Anderson, 27, told ESPN she is "looking forward to fighting Cyborg for a UFC title at a later date", but they declined further comment on her current status.

Roger Federer thrashes Alexander Zverev, clinches ninth Halle Open title
The Stuttgart defeat was the first time Federer had lost his opening match at a grass-court tournament since 2002 Wimbledon. But Zverev, ranked No. 12, had no answer for Federer's aggressive play and near flawless execution.

It's an interesting turn of events for Cyborg, who ranted and raved to get this opportunity against Anderson after Germaine de Randamie openly said she would not fight her.

Both bouts took place at a catchweight of 140 pounds, with UFC 214 set to be her first trip to the Octagon as a featherweight.

Justino has dominantly won her two UFC scraps, versus Leslie Smith and Lina Lansberg, and hasn't lost a pro MMA bout since her debut in 2005.

UFC 214 is headlined by UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones in what will settle the score for the light heavyweight division once and for all.
