Rising lightweight and undefeated fighter Nick Newell has his next fight, as the former XFC champ will fight Sabah Fadai at World Series of Fighting 7, which will go down December 7th, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Newell (10-0) will be looking to build on the first round, guillotine choke he scored over Keon Caldwell in August, which was the 27 year-old fighter’s WSOF debut. Newell, who was born with a partially developed left arm, has scored submission wins in seven of his fights to date and has only been to the judge’s cards once.
“I’m so honored to be part of WSOF’s first event in Canada,” Newell said in a press release from the promotion. The opportunity to grow with this company on an international level is amazing. I’m expecting Fadai to bring it, and I can’t wait to have my arm raised Dec. 7.”
Fadai (7-2) trains out of Mamba MMA in Abbotsford, BC, which is close to Vancouver. In Fadai’s last outing, the 28 year-old fighter tapped out Cody Krahn, which took place at a Maximum Fighting Championship card in October, 2012. All seven of Fadai’s wins have come via stoppage or submission.
So, that’s an interesting addition to WSOF 7, which will be hosted by Vancouver’s PNE Agrodome. The card will see feature Anthony Johnson taking on light-heavyweight vet Mike Kyle in the main event, as well as the postponed middleweight tourney semi between Elvis Mutapcic and Jesse Taylor.
