UFC 225 features an interesting women’s featherweight matchup between former bantamweight champion and featherweight title challenger Holly ‘the Preacher’s Daughter’ Holm and former Invicta FC featherweight champion Megan Anderson on June 9 in Chicago, Illinois.

Anderson was scheduled to make her UFC debut almost a year ago in July at UFC 214 against current champion Cris Cyborg. Anderson captured the Invicta FC featherweight title in a dominating fashion which made her UFC contract inevitable. However, the bout couldn’t be materialized. Holm on the other hand is 1-4 in her last 5 fights but will enter the octagon as a favourite.

“I think I match up pretty well,” Anderson said of the upcoming bout against Holm. “I think they’re gonna be very surprised at the changes in my game. And I think Holly is a very skilled athlete and she’s been doing this for a really long time and I can see where people who don’t know about Invicta or haven’t watched a lot of women’s MMA outside of UFC may not know who I am so they kind of jump to the conclusion, ‘Oh, she’s not as tough as Holly, she’s gonna be out-boxed or out this.’

UFC Featherweight division is short of fighters and has fighters coming up from the bantamweight division. Anderson however calls herself a natural featherweight and is looking to use size advantage against Holm.

“Well, I’m like, this isn’t a boxing match, this is MMA, this is Mixed Martial Arts, this isn’t one discipline. And Holly tends to really only just fight one discipline when it comes to her fights that I’ve watched in the cage, and that’s where I’m different. I incorporate everything into my game, and people just haven’t seen that yet, and that’s something that we’re really excited to really show, that I’m not just a striker, that my ground game, my grappling is up there as well, and I see me matching up really well with Holly. I’m a lot bigger than her, I’m gonna be a lot stronger, I’m gonna be a lot longer and I’m just excited to showcase that.”
