WSOF 11 RESULTS: Justin Gaethje Batters Nick Newell on NBC - World Series of Fighting Network TV Debut - 7/5/14



The MMA World Series of Fighting presented WSOF 11: Gaethje vs Newell on Independence Day weekend, Saturday, July 5, 2014, at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. The main card aired live on NBC and marked the network television debut of the WSOF.

In the main event, WSOF Lightweight Champion Justin "The Highlight" Gaethje successfully defended his 155-pound with a second-round TKO victory over the inspirational Nick Newell, a one-armed fighter who was born with a congenital amputation. The amateur wrestling standout Newell defied expectations and rattled off 11 straight wins to start his MMA career, but hit his ceiling against Justin Gaethje, an elite-level fighter who 99.9-percent of the population could not defeat in a cagefight even if they had 3 arms.
