Lightweight fitter Nick Newell hopes to stay in Bellator after winning the first half against Corey Browning at Bellator 225.
Newell recently signed a contract with Bellator after the failure of the UFC Contender Series event. Although having lost one hand from birth, having an abnormal body but he still wants to join the MMA arena.
According to Bellator president Scott Coker, the match against Browning was a great performance, and Nick Newell performed very well with the tournament organizers. And it is more wonderful when this “one-handed fighter” won the first round.
After the battle, Newell posted on social media that he hoped to stay longer in Bellator. This is what Newell said on his personal Instagram: “The night of last night was a special night. It took me 10 years to play here and I won’t leave anywhere. ”
Based on Newell’s perfect victory, it seems likely that the long-term contract signed by Coker chairman and director Bellator – Rich Chou. Despite the physical limitations, Newell is a good boxer and also has a lot of fans.
Although he only had one hand to compete, Newell defeated famous fists and became a highly qualified MMA fighter in the world. Currently, his achievements are 16 wins and 2 losses. His only two failures were with Justin Gaethje, who is currently a temporary UFC champion in the World Series of Fighting and Alex Munoz on the Contender Series.
In the match against Corey Browning, Nick Newell was only the first time standing on the stage of Bellator 225. But he left an impression with a “manual triangle lock” to win the knockout out in the first half.
On the MMA website later commented that the Bellator 225 tournament had just spent an “unimaginable” day with wins … “lightning fast”. MMA fighters seem to want to “convalesce” for the upcoming matches so they do not want to waste too much time.
