The Legacy Fighting Alliance  may not be as well known as some of the organizations out there, but it has garnered media attention for signing Newell. Here’s what was reported:

Ex WSOF title challenger, and XFC Lightweight Champion Nick Newell has ended a two plus year layoff to sign a multi fight deal with LFA. Newell, a congenital amputee from the elbow down on his left arm has been fighting against the odds his whole life.
