XFC 17 RESULTS: One-Armed Fighter Nick Newell Remains Undefeated, Felice Herrig Impresses Against Little Patricia - 4/13/12

Xtreme Fighting Championships presented XFC 17: Apocalypse on Friday, April 13, 2012, at the Oman Arena in Jackson, Tennessee. The main card aired live on HDNet.

Nick Newell was born with a congenital amputation and does not have a left hand. His left arm ends just after his elbow. This did not stop Newell from growing up to become a successful high school and collegiate wrestler. Now, "Notorious" Nick Newell is a 7-0 professional mixed martial artist. And with a true gut-check performance at XFC 17, Newell proved his legitimacy as a fighter. Newell came back from taking a significant beating from Chris Coggins in the second round to win his fight on two of the three judges' scorecards. The dissenting judge had the fight ruled a draw.

Felice "Lil Bulldog" Herrig, a true beauty and the beast, rebounded from a loss in her last fight to score a unanimous decision victory over fringe contender "Little" Patricia Vidonic. This is by far the most significant win of Felice Herrig's MMA career. Herrig posted this pic on Facebook after the fight, with the caption "This is not my blood!!"
