I've watched the Newell journey from the beginning and have been inspired by what he's done, but his refusal to fight a guy in his own promotion because he isnt "a name", seems like a bad move and kinda hypocritical. Anyone agree? Phone Post

It's very hypocritical, considering that Nick Newell isn't a "Name" himself. Phone Post

if he is in fact trying to only fight bigger names to get the eyes of the UFC on him. wouldn't he worry what the UFC would think of him turning down fights? promotions aren't really cool wit dat.

He posted his side on his FB. Too many people react before they get facts...

 

EVERYBODY CALM DOWN! First of I AM NOT UNDER CONTRACT WITH THE XFC. XFC promoted a fight that didn't exist yet.

The headlines are misleading and imply that I was stripped of my title because I refused to fight when in fact I just chose not to renew my contract with the XFC. I am not scared to fight anybody. I have been through too much in my life to be scared of any man. All you have to do is look at one of my fights to see my heart & my fearless style. This has nothing to do with me being scared. It is more so just an attempt to bully me into a contract.

XFC trash talking me and trying to slander my name upsets me more then anything but they are promoters. XFC is promoting, thats what they do. They have to try and make their guys look as good as possible and I'm not one of their guys so it is at my expense.

Even though Scott is bad mouthing me as well, I have no ill will towards him. I consider myself to be a professional and as a professional I choose to stay away from negative talk towards other fighters, but I understand that he is an unfortunate victim of circumstance.

Definitely not scared just have my eyes on bigger pastures.

Love you all,
Nicholas G. Newell
