Congenital Amputee Nick Newell Finished Ricky Bandejas Via First-Round Triangle Choke!
Bellator 225 is happening live now (Saturday, August 24, 2019) from inside Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Nick Newell (16-2 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) has just written his name in the history of mixed martial arts. Despite he is one-and-a-half armed athlete, Newell scored an impressive first-round submission over Corey Browning (4-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC).
At the beginning of the match, Newell landed a few big right hands, then dragged his foe to the ground. Then he passed the guard, ending in the mounted crucifix, and it was the beginning of the end for Corey Browning.
Newell transited to the full mount and secured a triangle choke tight, then passed to the other side and forced his foe to surrender.
Victory for @NotoriousNewell in his @BellatorMMA debut 👊

Nick Newell will certainly get more chances to fight in Bellator MMA. Despite Dana White was not friendly towards offering him a UFC contract, Newell proved his value in Scott Coker’s promotion!
