One-armed MMA fighter is deadly with his legs8/5/2012
There are enough bodily weapons at a fighter's disposal in MMA that he doesn't necessarily need two hands. But Nick Newell definitively proved this with a savage knee hit that took out his opponent, David Mays, in a match in Charlotte, N.C. Other than finding willing opponents who don't want to risk losing to a one-armed fighter, Newell's situation has been anything but a disability: He's now 8-0 as a pro, and is in line for an Xtreme Fighting Championships title bout. Newell goes by the nickname "Notorious," but as you can hear, gravel-voiced XFC commentator Michael Schiavello prefers "you crazy one-armed bastard!" [Source]
Do opponents underestimate Newell because he only has one arm?
