Amanda Nunes is out of her title fight at UFC 256

Amanda Nunes was set to defend one of her titles next month, against Megan Anderson. The fight was set to take place on December 12th, and the two women were supposed to be headlining the PPV.

Brett Okamoto of ESPN first reported that Amanda Nunes was out, which was then confirmed by her opponent, who wished her a speedy recovery for what is currently undisclosed:

The UFC is once again out of a main event. With this weekends card losing Islam Makhachev and UFC 255 previously losing Cody Garbrandt.

Based on Anderson’s tweet, a replacement fight won’t be made, instead they’ll be rescheduling the bout to next year. This means either a completely new match up will headline the card, or Aljamain Sterling will headline when he takes on Petr Yan for the Bantamweight title, which is currently the co main event.
