Megan Anderson’s Championship Legacy Begins at Invicta FC 24

Note: This is a column I wrote for Creators.co

There’s an old adage in combat sports – it’s one thing to win a championship but it’s another to successfully defend it. Invicta FC featherweight champion and Australia’s pride and joy Megan Anderson is going to learn this first hand on July 15.

Invicta Fighting Championships announced that Anderson will make her first title defense against undefeated Ukrainian prospect Helena Kolesnyk at Invicta FC 24. This will be Kolesnyk’s first foray in the Invicta cage.

Anderson won the Invicta featherweight title in January when she finished Charmaine Tweet in the second round – a bout that was originally for the interim 145-title. She was promoted to undisputed featherweight champion after former titleholder Cris “Cyborg” Justino opted to compete in the UFC full-time.
