Megan Anderson has slammed the Glory MMA fight team for failing to prepare her properly for her UFC featherweight title fight against Amanda Nunes in 2021.

Amanda Nunes made quick work of Megan Anderson at UFC 259.


Anderson (10-5-0) challenged Amanda Nunes for the featherweight championship at the UFC 259 event in March 2021, losing by way of first-round submission. Following the defeat, the Australian departed from the UFC and announced she has no plans to compete in MMA competition for the foreseeable future.

On Thursday, a fan spoke about how Anderson “threw her coaches under the bus” after losing to Nunes. Anderson saw the comments and let her feelings be known. She compares her treatment with that of UFC flyweight Brandon Moreno and feels as though she was not given the same amount of time.

When you only received 1 x 30min pad session a week for the entire 7 months I was IN camp and received no other individual coaching, no one picking my training partners/rounds or even coaching me through those rounds the entire time, when no matter how many times I asked to sit down to talk about a game plan an excuse was always given for it to to never happen, then it’s not throwing them under the bus… It’s saying exactly what happened.” she said.

Now Brandon had a personalized session every single day, whenever he travelled for the UFC Spanish broadcast, the coach travelled with him to make sure he had personalized training all all times. If you’re telling me that just 1 x 30mins pad session a week is enough for a world title fight against the greatest female fighter of all time is enough coaching then you’re delusional.” she concluded.


Glory MMA is located in Missouri and run by former UFC fighter James Krause. The team is host to a number of notable names including Tim Elliott, and the previously mentioned Brandon Moreno.

Anderson was a mainstay in the women’s featherweight division prior to her departure from competition. The 32-year-old is a former Invicta FC featherweight champion and owns notable UFC victories over the likes of Norma Dumont, Zarah Fairn, and Cat Zingano.
