Newell has a very short yet muscular stump of his forearm which he learned from a young age to grasp objects with. On joining his wrestling team, he thought about quitting after his very first session because it was "the hardest thing I had done in my life", but his mother did not allow him to, and instead he worked hard from then on. After graduating from high school, Newell attended Western New England University where he continued wrestling. They would watch The Ultimate Fighter, which was on the same channel right after WWE Raw, and Newell has said this is what inspired him to take up MMA.
Fighter Trivia
Newell and his wife have two sons, Wyatt and Brady . Newell's life story is the focus of the film Notorious Nick, where he is played by Cody Christian. Newell currently runs an MMA school called Fighting Arts Academy in Milford, Connecticut.
