Holly Holm meets Megan Anderson at UFC 225 in first non-title featherweight bout

The first non-title women’s featherweight bout in UFC history will take place at UFC 225, and it features former champ Holly Holm against Megan Anderson.

The Chicago Tribune announced the matchup between Holm (11-4 MMA, 4-4 UFC) and Anderson (8-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

UFC 225 will take place June 9 at United Center in Chicago. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.

Holm will return to the octagon for the first time since her failed 145-pound title bid against champ Cris Cyborg at UFC 219. The former 135-pound titleholder managed to take the Brazilian to the scorecards but ultimately lost a convincing decision.

At 36, “The Preacher’s Daughter” recently said she has no intent on retiring anytime soon. She wants to make another run at the title, and that begins at UFC 225.
