Stepping into the Octagon for an MMA fight takes big brass ones for a normal person, but for someone that is missing an arm? Forget brass; we're talking platinum here!
Nick Newell was born with congenital amputation meaning he had a limb that was not fully developed. That hasn't stopped the man from becoming a true-blue bad *ss though. Rather than let having just one arm hold him back he's become a professional fighter, and a darn good one at that--the man is undefeated (8-0)!
True, the XFC (where he fights) is nothing compared to the UFC, but he's still a one-armed man with seven wins by TKO, KO, or submission all in the first round. This one-armed man didn't just do it--he knocked it out!
