When it was decided that welterweights would be the focus of "The Ultimate Fighter 13," Nick Newell was out of luck.

The UFC was ready to give him a shot but with the stipulation that he might not get another at his natural lightweight class.

So Newell, who was born with just one full arm, went home and picked up four more wins.

If Newell wins this fight, I would LOVE to see how he does in the octagon.

Hell I've seen him fight, and he does well with his stump. It would be pretty impossible to armbar it too.
There's a real stigma attached to fighting a one armed dude though. In some people's eyes it will always be a lose/lose situation - regardless of Nick's experience and fights.
