Aussie Anderson set to meet Tweet in Main Event at Invicta FC 21

Thu, Jan 12, 9:33am by Head Editor

On Saturday night (Sunday AEDT), at Invicta FC 21, veteran Charmaine Tweet and red-hot Aussie Megan Anderson will face off for the interim featherweight title.

Anderson, a 26-year-old from the Gold Coast has improved immensely since moving to America to train at Glory MMA and Fitness. She had an outstanding 2016, winning all three of her bouts in 2016 and if she can make it four, she’ll make her mark in a division that’s set for a changing of the guard.

After a dominant 11-year reign over the world’s female featherweights and a three and a half year run at the top of Invicta, Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino will finally be in position to continue her run in the UFC.

The new division kicks off in a few weeks, opening new doors to Invicta’s featherweights.

Tweet, like Anderson, is entering the cage on a three-fight winning streak and the similarities don’t end there. They both stand 6-foot tall, and are both very well-rounded fighters. Now that Cyborg has a home in the UFC, this is a huge opportunity for both women, who are desperate for the belt.

The Canadian poses a big threat to start Anderson’s 2017 off on a negative note although both women should eventually make it to the UFC to join the top promotion’s featherweight division.

Jodie Esquibel was set to face Deanna Bennett in the evening’s co-headliner, but Bennett had to pull out on short notice and was replaced by undefeated prospect Kali Robbins.

Rounding out the card are the long-awaited returns of Pannie Kianzad and Raquel Pa’aluhi, who face off in a bantamweight showdown, as well as a whole host of promotional and professional debuts, featuring Heather Hardy, Brieta Carpenter and many more.
