Undefeated lightweight and all-around good guy Nick Newell (10-0, nine wins by first-round stoppage) has booked his next assignment in World Series of Fighting, following his successful debut against Keon Caldwell in August. The promotion has confirmed that Newell will face 7-2 MFC veteranĀ Sabah “The Persian Warrior” Fadai at WSOF 7, December 7th at the PNE Agrodome in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Sabah Fadai is a 28-year-old B.C. native who hasn’t competed since a first-round triangle-choke victory against Cody Krahn at MFC 35 in October 2012. Fadai’s two fights before that resulted in a no-contest (after Fadai illegally kneed Diego Bautista at MFC 33) and a decision loss to Mukai Maromo at MFC 31. Though all of Fadai’s wins have come by stoppage, he’s only been victorious once in the last three years.
