UFC 214: Tonya Evinger vs Cris Cyborg
Evinger replaces Anderson to fight Cyborg at UFC 214

UFC 214: Cormier vs Jones 2 is held at Honda Center in Anaheim on July 29 live on Pay-Per-View.

In the headliner at UFC 214 the current light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (19-1-0) faces off Jon Jones (22-1-0) in defense of the title. The contest is their second encounter, following the bout in 2015 when Jones, a champion at that time, defended the belt taking a unanimous decision.

Last week UFC announced that the second bout from the top features Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino up against Megan Anderson for UFC featherweight title. However on Monday the organization advised that due to personal issues the latter has been forced to withdraw from the challenge.

A replacement for Anderson in the bout against ‘Cyborg’ for the vacant UFC featherweight title is American Tonya Evinger aka “Triple Threat”. Over the years, the 36-years-old Invicta FC bantamweight champion claimed victories against such athletes as Sarah D’Alelio, Cindy Dandois, Irene Aldana, among others. Unbeaten for nearly six years Evinger makes her debut in the UFC.

To date the organization announced twelve bouts. Updated UFC 214 fight card can be found below.
