Amanda Nunes and Megan Anderson are onboard for March 6, 2021. The two were previously the feature protagonists of the December 12 fight card.
Amanda Nunes Vs. Megan Anderson, which was initially processed as the headliner fight for the year’s final pay-per-view (UFC 256), but ultimately got scrapped on account of an undisclosed injury of Nunes, is now on the fight sheet once again.
According to reports, Amanda Nunes has now fully recovered, and the match is now rebooked for March 6, 2021. This will be a featherweight title match, and the current holder Nunes will come out to defend the title for the 2nd time in a row.

Anderson, who is the undisputed challenger will have the onus to stop Nunes from running through the entire 145-pound weight class.
While the fight got the deferred date but, its stature may not change. The bout is now set to take place on March 6, which is the scheduled date for UFC 259. So, the concerned fight may very well headline the Pay-Per-view event.
