Carlos “The Ronin” Newton will return to action against fellow Canadian Nabil “The Thrill” Khatib at Warrior 1 MMA’s inaugural show on March 28th 2009. The bout will be Newton’s first appearance in Canada since making his pro debut 13 years ago at Extreme Fighting 2.
Newton (13-13) commented on his return to the fight scene. “I have been away from MMA for some time now and I couldn’t be more excited to be back. It only seems right to make my return in my home country and with a great organization like Warrior One.”
