Nick Newell Debuts In WSOF With Another Submission Win

Nick Newell is just as dangerous with one arm as most fighters are with two, and showed that Saturday night at World Series of Fighting: Spong vs. DeAnda.

Newell scored a seventh career submission victory over Keon Caldwell, locking in a first round guillotine. He was honored with an American flag from the Wounded Warriors foundation after the win.

“To be living the dream, I know how hard I worked (to get here),” Newell said. “It means a lot to me. I know what it’s like to be at the bottom and now I am at the top, and I am not letting anyone take it away from me.”

Newell (10-0) used his exceptional wrestling to take Caldwell (9-2) down numerous times in the first three minutes. He planned to stand and trade, but didn’t let the opportunity to submit Caldwell pass him by.

“I had a bunch of ways I thought I would beat him, and this was one of them,” Newell said. “A lot of people dream about making it this far; I am here and I want it.”
