“I’m gonna win fights there,” Newell told TMZ Sports. “I’m ready to start snappin’ some necks and cashin’ some checks.”
But Nick, who’s 14-1 after his latest win, didn’t sound too confident he’d get the call — comparing his situation to the era of women’s MMA before Rousey broke through.
Of course, women are now bigger in the UFC than arguably any major pro sports org. — so “Notorious” is hoping Dana White changes his tune.
