Anderson then reacted with broken heart emojis, then commented while retweeting Okamoto:
Wishing Amanda a speedy recovery 🙏🏻UFC are rescheduling the bout for a date early next year.

The title fight was supposed to go down December 12th at the UFC APEX.
Nunes won the featherweight championship from Cris Cyborg. She also holds the bantamweight title, after defeating Miesha Tate in 2016.
Anderson had a successful run in Invicta FC, where she held their featherweight championship, before moving to the UFC.
