Lost in the hubbub of UFC was the historic win by Nick Newell.

He won XFC's lightweight championship over the weekend despite having just one hand.

He was born with an arm that goes just to the elbow because of congenital amputation. As commentator Pat Miletich points out, Newell used his disability to his advantage in locking in a rear-naked choke.

The best part of the video is seeing the young fan who also has a congenital amputation go into cage to congratulate Newell. He is now 9-0, with only one win coming by decision.
