With just his right hand, Newell has overcome nine opponents and is undefeated. XFC publicity photo.

It’s becoming more and more apparent that in MMA there’s no limit to what those who train hard can do. At XFC 21 last Friday, Nick Newell defeated Eric Reynolds in becoming the promotion’s lightweight champion. Nothing too unusual there, until you take into account the fact that he is missing a large piece of his left arm.

Newell, 26, was born without a left hand and half of his forearm. But that didn’t keep the Jiu-Jitsu practitioner from winning the lightweight title, tapping out his opponent, Eric Reynolds, with a rear-naked choke in the first round at the event entitled Night of Champions II. With the win, he brought his record to an admirable 9-0.

Watch Nick’s win below, and let us know: Do you think he could hang in the UFC?
