Nick Newell (10-0), a highly touted and undefeated lightweight prospect, is now slated to fight at World Series of Fighting's Dec. 7 event. There, he meets Sabah Fadai (7-2) at WSOF 7.
Newell, a congenital amputee, confirmed the fight via Twitter following an initial report from SI.com.
Although initially expected to meet Gesias Cavalcante (18-7-1) in a lightweight tournament semifinal, Newell wrote on Facebook that "JZ" wasn't available for the December event and that the tourney has been canceled.
WSOF 7 takes place at PNE Agrodome in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The main card airs on NBC Sports Network.
