Who is Nick Newell?

"All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."- T.E. Lawrence

Born March 17th, 1986 you could tell immediately that Nick Newell was not your average child. Born with a condition called congenital amputation Nick's arm only extends a few inches past the elbow. Raised to never doubt himself Nick played many sports as a youth including soccer, basketball and baseball, making many travel and all star teams.
Nick would not find his true passion until high school when he joined the wrestling team. Nick fell in love with the sport instantly and even though he had a very poor record of 8 wins (6 by forfeit) and 22 losses he stuck with it and made a promise to himself to give it everything he's got. Over the next three years he compiled a record of 115-23 and earned all state honors as a senior before transitioning into a college wrestling career at Western New England University where he captained the team his final two years.
While in college Nick discovered the sport of mixed martial arts. Through the tutelage of The Fighting Arts Academy in Springfield, Mass and Ultimate MMA in North Haven, CT, Nick competed as an amateur, capturing the NAFL 155lb title before turning pro where he now holds a professional mixed martial arts record of 6 wins and 0 losses, with all six of his wins having occurred in the first round.
Nick's superior fighting ability and unique story have led him to be featured AOL Fanhouse, Yahoo! News, MMAJunkie.com, BleacherReport.com, MixedMartialArts.com, MMAFighting.com, MMAmania.com, Graciemag.com, Cagepotato.com, TapOuT Magazine, Ultimate MMA Magazine, The CT Post, Fox News, News Channel 12 and Inside MMA, on top of doing seminars all over the country including The Walter Reed Hospital for injured troops in Washington, DC.
With his never ending passion for mixed martial arts and his undying belief in himself, the sky is the limit for this 25 year old Mixed Martial Artist from Milford, CT.
