Twitter reacts: Germaine de Randamie stripped, and ‘Cyborg’ vs. Megan Anderson at UFC 214

The number of fighters to hold UFC belts was trimmed from 11 to 10 today when the UFC announced it had officially stripped Germaine de Randamie of the women’s featherweight crown.

De Randamie’s (7-3 MMA, 4-1 UFC) apparent refusal to defend the belt against Cristiane Justino (17-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) led to decision, and as a result “Cyborg,” meets Megan Anderson (9-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) for the vacant title at UFC 214, which takes place July 29 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
