Former Invicta featherweight champions Megan Anderson and Felicia Spencer squared off on the main card of Saturday’s UFC event in Rochester, New York.

The fight served as Spencer’s promotional debut and marked Anderson’s third octagon appearance.

Felicia Spencer was able to get her fight with Megan Anderson to the canvas in the opening seconds of the fight. From there, the most recent Invicta featherweight champion, Spencer, was able to lock in a rear-naked choke which forced her Australian opponent to tapout.

With the loss, Megan Anderson falls to 1-2 in the UFC, with her lone victory coming over Cat Zingano at UFC 232.

Earlier this evening, Anderson took to Instagram where she issued the following classy statement on her loss to Felicia Spencer at UFC Rochester.

“This sport comes with the highest highs and the lowest lows… Last night wasn’t my night. I am so proud and happy for Felicia. I know how much this meant to her and I am so excited to see what’s next in her career. Thank you to my family/coaches/team for everything. You push me to become a better person both inside and outside of the cage every day. Your unwavering love and support means the absolute world to me. To my teammates @grantdawsonkgd and @zakcummings a HUGE congrats on your amazing wins. I’m proud to stand by your sides and do battle.” – Megan Anderson

Meanwhile, following her impressive first round submission over Anderson this Saturday, Felicia Spencer proceeded to callout former UFC featherweight queen Cris Cyborg.

The Brazilian striking specialist responded to Spencer earlier this evening on social media (see that here).
