Nick Newell Wiki Update Wiki

Nick Newell is an MMA fighter who fights at lightweight who only has one hand, his other one ends just after the elbow a condition he was born with. He was inspired by Yankees pitcher Jim Abbott who was also missing a hand. He tried out for the wrestling team in high school and almost quit but his mother forced him to stick with it and he racked up over 300 victories in high school and college.

He began his MMA career in 2009 and hasn't looked back amassing a 10-0 record for organizations like Cage Titans and XFC. His most notable win for XFC was when he defeated Eric Reynolds to win the XFC Lightweight Championship in 2012. Newell hopes to end up in the UFC one day so he did the next best thing he could do and signed with the World Series of Fighting where he might get the chance to fight some former UFC fighters. He would make his debut at WSOF 4 defeating Keon Caldwell in the first round. Newell has now finished all but 1 of his opponents on his current undefeated run.
