"Notorious" Nick Newell is a promising young lightweight (and XFC champion) who is undefeated at 9-0 with eight finishes and six submissions. So why has UFC President Dana White refused to give him a shot at UFC superstardom?
XFC lightweight Nick Newell told Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour that if Dana White is committed to given equal opportunity to fighters from different kinds of backgrounds, he wants to know why he's being excluded.
AXS TV Fights is LIVE from Nashville, Tennessee for "XFC 21: Night of Champions II" where undefeated one-armed MMA sensation Nick Newell meets Bellator veteran Eric Reynolds in the main event on Friday, Dec. 7 at 10:00pm ET.
Eric Reynolds was able to edge out his opponent, Luciano Dos Santos in the main event at XFC 17 in Jackson, Tenn., on Apr. 13, 2012. The card also saw rising star Nick Newell remain unbeaten with a gutsy win over Chris Coggins. MMAmania.com recaps the event.
