Nick Newell & Sonny Luque Headline LFA 35 | March 9th on AXS TV
March 8, 2018
Nick Newell Comes Out of Retirement and Returns to Fight on AXS TV!
In the main event “Notorious” Nick Newell (13-1) returns to AXS TV for the first time since winning the XFC Lightweight championship in December 2012, and he’ll face Laredo’s Sonny Luque (9-6). Newell’s only loss came to the UFC’s Justin Gaethje at WSOF 11 in 2014. Luque is a Black Belt in Taekwondo and the face of MMA in Laredo. Newell will be looking for a successful return to the MMA cage while Luque will be looking to serve him with his second loss, so watch for fireworks in this one.
The co-main event features two men who have fought for Heavyweight titles before on AXS TV as Jared Vanderaa (6-2) takes on Vernon Lewis (4-3). Both men have perfect finishing rates, so watch for this one to end with a bang!
