How to beat Nick Newell

Newell is someone that greatly interested me on his way up the ranks, and now that he's in the news for bailing on a fight, I figured I'd share this. It's my step-by-step analysis of everything Newell does in a fight, why, and how to beat him from most positions. It's technical reading, but was fun to write and might be of interest.

Good read buddy

I think the easiest way to beat him is to just make him think he'll beat you, then he wont fight you at all.
