“Notorious” Nick Newell is a professional mixed martial artist fighting out of Springfield, Mass. The Milford, CT, native started off
fighting as an amateur where he captured the NAFL 155lb title before going pro. He currently carries an unblemished professional record of
5-0 with all five of those victories occurring in the first round. Newell’s aggressive fighting style and ability to overcome adversity
have made him a fan favorite in the North Eastern United States MMA scene — a fan base that is sure to grow as Newell enters the talent-rich Shark Fights lightweight division as the CagePotato.com Proving Ground Champion.
