‘Notorious Nick’: MMA fighter talks new movie, life story


NEW YORK — Stepping into the ring as a mixed martial artist takes a lot of confidence and courage, even more so when you’re born with a disability.

However, that didn’t stop Connecticut’s Nick Newell from fighting for his dream.

Newell spoke with the PIX11 News about “Notorious Nick,” a new movie that’s based on the story of his life. 

“Notorious Nick” debuts Friday and is available anywhere you can get movies on demand.
