In a gruesome and extremely competitive sport like MMA,competing with a small inability can be difficult,especially at a higher level.However the Springfield, Massachusetts product has proved everybody wrong.Fighters with the nickname ‘Notorious’ have always been proven special to the sport and so is Nick ‘the Notorious’ Newell.

Newell was born with congenital amputation of his left arm which ends right below his elbow.Before turning pro,Newell had an impressive amatuer record of 5-1.However,Newell would never get more opponents as other fighters didn’t want to fight a one armed fighter.As if they win,it would’ve been against a one-armed fighter and if they lose,it would be against a one-armed fighter.From not finding opponents,Newell has reached a stage where he is knocking on the door for a UFC contract with an even more impressive record of 14-1.
