Default Nick Newell just won the XFC LW title

He RNC'd his toughest opponent to date in Eric Reynolds in a little over a minute, after hitting a beautiful suplex. Pretty damn impressive.

Video will probably be up later.

If you don't know Nick Newell, he is a mixed martial artist that was born with a condition called congenital amputation, so he has no left arm past his elbow. 9-0 with 8 first round finishes.

Not sure how I feel about this. Obviously its impressive and an inspiration to people in similar positions but not having a left forearm is a huge disadvantage, there are some things each of us can't do and we have to accept that. Will fighters be reticent to take advantage of this obvious defensive flaw?

Regardless, best of luck to the guy and hope his opponents give it there all as it appeared in that REynolds fight.
