UNDEFEATED RISING STAR
NICK NEWELL SIGNS WITH WORLD SERIES OF FIGHTING
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (May 28, 2013) – Unbeaten inspiration “Notorious” Nick Newell (9-0) of Springfield, Mass. has signed a multi-fight contract to compete for premier Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) promotion World Series of Fighting, it was announced today.

“This is the key to changing your life. This is the chance you’ve always hoped for.”
For a long time the Lightweight Division has been referred to as the deepest division in Mixed Martial Arts and for a long time it has been clear to see why. However I believe the division is currently the shallowest it has been since BJ Penn beat Diego Sanchez in 2009.
In October 2012 there were 6 guys who all had a solid argument for a title shot:
Frankie Edgar – Coming off a close/controversial championship loss
Nate Diaz – Riding a 3-0 Streak since returning to Lightweight
(Tampa, FL) –Xtreme Fighting Championships will return to Tampa Bay on June 14 for XFC 24 at the USF Sundome. The promotion has been touring the United States, outside of Florida since December of 2011, and will return to the city where it all began for an event that is rumored to be headlined with the first title defense for current Lightweight Champion “Notorious” Nick Newell (9-0) and rising star Scott “Hot Sauce” Holtzman (4-0).
Ray chats with Suzie Montero about her fight at XFC 22, fighting Kim Couture and the growth WMMA.

After Barnett's win at the weekend everyone was hoping to see Barnett back in the UFC. Unfortunately he has had issues with the UFC in the past and it looked like we would not see Barnett in the UFC competing with the best heavyweights, or will we.
Nothing has been confirmed, but Josh Barnett has been added to the list of fighters on UFC.com. Even though nothing has been confirmed it is looking quite good that we will see Barnett (the former UFC heavyweight champion) back in the UFC.
