One Armed XFC fighter Nick Newell's Remarkable Victory! (Video)
It was a historic win by Nick Newell indeed. He won XFC's lightweight championship over the weekend despite having just one hand.
Newell has an arm that ends at the elbow because of a condition called congenital amputation. Instead of the handicap being a restriction for him, Newell used his disability to his advantage in locking in a rear-naked choke.
The jubilation evident in Nick’s celebration is infectious!
