Bio: Megan Anderson, born and raised on Australia’s Gold Coast. Growing up, sport was not her forte, with Anderson even admitting “I was extremely unathletic”, however; after finding mixed martial arts, her attitude towards sports and competing changed significantly. Since only competing for just over two years, Megan has built up a 4-1 professional record while also redeeming her debut loss. Anderson now boasts a four fight win streak and looks to improve that. While growing not only inside the gym and cage, Anderson is also developing quite the fan base on social media. Her attitude and personality is one of a kind which has proven to be approved and accepted specifically by the U.S audience and mma fan base.
“I fight because I love it. I fight because I want to be the best. I go in there to get the job done in the most ruthless and brutal way possible way.”
