NXT Superstar Xia Li is one of the most talented Superstars in the NXT women’s roster. However, it seems she is not only skillful in professional wrestling.
Li is set to make her debut in amateur kickboxing at Combat Night Orlando on October 24th. Combat Night Orlando promoter Mitchell Chamale spoke to the Roman Show where he revealed he did not know that Li was a WWE Superstar until recently.
“I was unaware [that Li is a wrestler] until recently, but to us, she is an athlete looking to test her skill on our event.”
“We do our best to treat all our athletes the same regardless of what they do outside the cage.”
Xia Li will be fighting against Anna Housel in a 125-pound contest. The 200 people in attendance at the event will be socially distanced at Gilt Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
