WWE NXT star to make amateur kickboxing debut this Saturday

WWE NXT star Xia Li is slated to make her amateur kickboxing debut this Saturday.

She’ll be competing under her real name, Zhao Xia, when she fights Anna Housel, who is also making her debut. The 125-pound bout will be featured on the preliminary card of the Combat Night Orlando event that will stream as a pay-per-view and only 200 fans in attendance, which is sold out, due to COVID-19.

Because this is an amateur contest, both fighters will be wearing headgear. Li worked the Mae Young Classic tournaments in 2017 and 2018 before signing with WWE and placed in NXT.

Li was last seen in action on NXT TV when she lost to Kayden Carter in a singles match.

You can purchase the pay-per-view live stream for just $19.98. Here’s the card:
