Anderson Speaks On UFC Rochester Defeat

In an Instagram post, Anderson shared her thoughts following her most recent setback:

“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 [Grant Dawson] and [Zak Cummings] a HUGE congrats on your amazing wins. I’m proud to stand by your sides and do battle.”

Anderson is now 1-2 in the UFC. Her promotional debut ended in a unanimous decision loss to Holly Holm. She then stopped Cat Zingano when her toe caught “Alpha’s” eye.
