After being on the sidelines since April of last year, Steven New will return to competition on Saturday at Strikefest 2 as he will meet Nathan Williams in the main event of the fight card that will be streamed live on FloCombat.

The last fight for New (5-2) came at Valor Fights 32 against Nick Gherts and he was defeated in the opening round by submission. The defeat snapped a four fight winning streak and was initially scheduled to return in October, but that fight card ended up being canceled.

On this edition of “The MMA Report Podcast Extra,” New talks about fighting for the first time in 19 months on Saturday at Strikefest 2 against Williams.
