UFC 256 is once more with no a major function after Amanda Nunes’s title defense versus Megan Anderson has been canceled for undisclosed causes.
For each an ESPN report, Amanda Nunes will not be defending her featherweight championship against Megan Anderson at UFC 256 soon after the winner was pressured to withdraw from the bout. There are at the moment no aspects accessible for what prompted Nunes out of the contest.
This bout would have served as Nunes’s 2nd defense of the featherweight championship and her 2nd struggle of the calendar year. Nunes very last defended the featherweight championship in a dominant victory about Felicia Spencer at UFC 250. Megan Anderson earned a shot at Nunes by pulling with each other two consecutive victories, initially around Zarah Fairn Dos Santos at UFC 243 followed by a knockout of Norma Dumont Viana in February.
The UFC 256 key occasion was at first prepared to be Kamaru Usman defending his welterweight championship versus Gilbert Burns, but that bout was postponed, at which stage Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson grew to become the new key function. There is an additional title battle on the card, even so, with Petr Yan defending the bantamweight championship against Aljamain Sterling. If no other title combat is extra, it would seem to be really very likely that this will be the new main party for the card.
With the removing of Nunes/Anderson, the current UFC 256 lineup consists of the subsequent bouts:
UFC Bantamweight Championship Bout: Petr Yan© vs. Aljamain Sterling
Junior dos Santos vs. Ciryl Gane
Marvin Vettori vs. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza
Mackenzie Dern vs. Virna Jandiroba
Tecia Torres vs. Angela Hill
Li Jingliang vs. Dwight Grant
Billy Quarantillo vs. Gavin Tucker
Chase Hooper vs. Peter Barrett
Karl Roberson vs. Dalcha Lungiambula
Jared Vanderaa vs. Sergey Spivak
