Megan Anderson was looking for her first winning streak in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Ultimately, that didn’t happen as the Aussie was submitted in the first round by promotional newcomer Felicia Spencer at UFC Rochester.
Anderson took to social media to provide a statement regarding Saturday’s fight.
“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,” she wrote.
“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.”
The 29-year-old Australian is now 9-4 in her career following the loss.
