Nick Newell In Talks With UFC
With a three fight win streak and a 14-1 record, it only seemed like a matter of time until Nick Newell would make the jump to the UFC.
Even though he was born with one hand, Newell has demanded equality inside the cage, and has been able to construct a resume worthy enough of a shot inside the Octagon.
Per a report from ESPN’s Brett Okamoto: Newell and his agent sat down with UFC President Dana White, and seems that by the end of the week the former World Series Of Fighting star will have his answer.
UFC president Dana White told me he met with Nick Newell and his agent Ali Abdelaziz yesterday in Las Vegas. "Obviously his dream is to fight in the UFC. I told him I would give him an answer by tomorrow." Newell is still in Vegas today, flies home tomorrow morning.
