One-Armed Nick Newell Eyes UFC After An Impressive victory At LFA 35

On Friday, March 9, Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) held its 35th event at the Arena Theatre in Houston.

Over two years since his last fight, a former World Series of Fighting star (WSOF) and lightweight Nick Newell made his return to MMA against local fighter Sonny Luque.

Newell, a congenital amputee, scored an impressive victory over Sonny Luque via first-round a rear-naked choke submission in a 160-pound catchweight fight at Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) 35 on Friday in Houston.

After the victory, Newell reiterated his desire to fight in the UFC., who is now 14-1 and on a three-fight win streak.

“Life is a cold hard place. It will chew you up and spit you out,” Newell said. “But if you make it your bitch, you can do anything. You can either become a victim of circumstances or you can create your own. I’m out here, I’m creating my own circumstances.

“I’m one of the best fighters in the world and I belong in the UFC. That’s it. That’s final. I gave you 14 reasons why I belong in the UFC. I’m one of the best fighters in the world and I proved it 14 times.”
