Inspirational Local News Story about my nephew, Nick Newell

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

10 second commercial followed by video of my nephew Nick Newell, being refused entry into Ultimate Fighting Championship.

The quote from UFC President, Dana White is shocking to me, but I give him points for honesty.

Hoping Nick will eventually prevail and gain admittance into the #1 MMA venue, which is the UFC.

    Dana White will be eating his words...I don't doubt it. He's too busy worrying about the women's events....when he has time he'll check out your nephew and we'll be hearing about him in NO time!! Thanks for sharing this. I love the UFC - can't wait to see him in the octagon!

    Love these updates on your nephew. Shame on Dana White- Nick has enough of a fight in the ring to not have to fight just to get into the ring!

    Dana White also said that he would never allow women to fight in UFC and that is about to happen. Your nephew will be there shortly. I will definitely watch when he does.

    This is an outrage. They should not discrimate against anyone.

emoticon I am cheering for your nephew, all the way. This is one tough sport and if he has a record that speaks for itself, let him fight. WOW, truly a remarkable young man.

You should start a petition or an email campaign to Dana White, you have a lot of support from your fellow Sparkies to back you up.
