GOLD Coast fighter Megan Anderson faces the biggest test of her mixed martial arts career when she meets Ronda Rousey’s conqueror Holly Holm at UFC 225 in June.

Anderson, 28, will make her UFC debut after rising to prominence in the smaller Invicta FC promotion, where she won the featherweight championship.

She had been scheduled to meet current UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg in July last year but withdrew for personal reasons.

But another chance to meet Cyborg and challenge for her title looms for Anderson if she can beat Holm, who upset the previously undefeated Rousey in Melbourne in November 2015.
