The main event was supposed to be the crowning of a new female flyweight champion as Sabina Mazo was going to take on Silvana Juarez but the bout got scratched due to Juarez’s issues of getting into the U.S. Mazo has been rescheduled to fight for the vacant flyweight belt, but this time with a new date and opponent. The 20-year-old prospect will take on Shannon Sinn at LFA 37 on April 20 in Sioux Falls, S.D.

A 160-pound catchweight bout between Nick Newell (13-1), who will be making his promotional debut, will take on Sonny Luque (10-6) as the new main event of the evening.

Newell was born with congenital amputation of his left arm, leaving his arm just going past his elbow. His disability didn’t hinder him from pursuing an MMA career, in which he kept an 11-fight win streak and signed with the World Series of Fighting. He did suffer his only defeat against current #5 UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje.

Fighting out of Laredo, TX, Luque the Bellator veteran runs his own gym, Laredo Kickboxing Academy, and has won 5 of his last 6 most recently coming off of a highlight-reel spinning back kick KO in December.

FightBookMMA will have the weigh-in live stream below which will start at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
