Nick Newell's latest victory is going to be hard to ignore. The fighter, who's still proving he's far more than MMA's "one-armed fighter," posted his most impressive win to date at Friday's XFC 21 event.

Strange how that arm kind of give hims a strange advantage in some positions its like having a hand hole by your elbow to grab. Inspiring story.

I was actually lucky enough to watch this live on AXS TV last night. Didn't even realized I had this channel.
Newell looked awesome. He had a nice little exchange with Reynolds, a nice slam and a super tight RNC. (One-handed at that)

LMAO man not having a hand is never an advantage in any situation...

Thats what Bas Rutten said and I would so agree...when discussing this fighter...

i thought the same thing when i seen him fight. he's hardly one-armed, more like one-handed. if you look at his arm it looks like a hook. on the ground it almost give him an advantage.
