02:41 PM ET 05.10 | Nick Newell has been stripped of his XFC lightweight title. Newell, who is a congenital amputee, holds a 9-0 professional record. XFC president John Prisco says Newell turned down a fight against Scott Holtzman. "When negotiating with his management regarding this fight, they were telling me about being offered a lot of money to fight for another promotion. We responded that if it's about money, bring us the best offer and we'll agree to match that offer. They did, we matched it, and we were again refused by Nick saying he only wants to fight ex-UFC fighters," Prisco said.
