One-Armed MMA Fighter Nick Newell Brings Big Dreams to Pro Debut   [View Full Version]

Like any mixed martial artist just beginning his pro career, Nick Newell has big dreams.

He wants to go as far as his mind can imagine, win a few belts, make some nice paydays, fight in a big promotion like DREAM, Strikeforce, even the UFC.

But Newell won't only have to overcome opponents to get there; he'll have to overcome a physical disability. The 23-year-old lightweight fighter, who will be making his pro debut this Saturday at a Cage Fighting Xtreme show in Plymouth, Mass., was born without a left hand. His arm ends just below the elbow.

DAMN... Well he's got heart. Never know he might actually shock some people. I recall something on news while ago bout a HS wrestler that was basically a torso that dominated in his weight class.

Possibly the same guy that made his MMA debut a few weeks/couple months back?
