Nick Newell, a fighter who is 8-0 despite sporting a left arm that ends just below the elbow, is set to face Eric Reynolds for the XFC’s vacant lightweight belt. Nick is coming off an impressive knockout victory over Adam David Mayes back in August, and everyone knows that a guy who uses three names damn sure deserves to get knocked out.

Newell recently spoke to MMAWeekly about his last fight, and his exciting future in the XFC:

“It was good to get the knockout on a big stage and showcase the striking that I’ve really been working on.”

“I think it’s the perfect next step. I train hard. I’m 3-0 [in the XFC], and I’ve had two impressive finishes and one really good fight. I think I deserve it and I think I’m ready for it.”

I’d say. This guy gets into a cage with opponents who have both hands and he wrecks their shit. That’s amazing. I can’t even stroke myself with one hand. It gets tired and I need to switch up.
