Anderson , 27, was able to take over Invicta FC’s 145-pound division after Cyborg left for UFC . If this matchup does in fact get booked, de Randamie will most likely be stripped of her title , making her UFC 208 clash with Holm one of the more ridiculous title fights of all time.

At the same time, the promotion announced that 145-pound champion Germaine de Randamie has been stripped of the title due to her unwillingness to fight Cyborg.

"UFC has informed Germaine de Randamie and her management team that she is being removed as the women's featherweight champion due to her unwillingness to fight the No. 1 ranked contender, Cris 'Cyborg' Justino," the UFC said in a statement provided to ESPN. "UFC maintains that any champion is expected to accept fights against the top contenders in their respective weight classes in order to maintain the integrity of the sport."

De Randamie won the inaugural women's featherweight title by defeating Holly Holm at UFC 208 in February. When Cyborg and Anderson square off, it will be the second fight in the history of the division.
