Nick Newell put forth a very uninspired performance against Tom Marcellino at tonight’s World Series of Fighting 24, but he did manage to secure the decision – and he announced his retirement from fighting, to boot.

For three rounds the one-armed fighter repeatedly took his foe to the ground, where he more or less maintained top position yet engaged in no ground and pound or went hard for a submission. However, fatigue made things go from bad to worse for both men, and by the time the bell rang, the curtain was dropped on what had turned out to be a less-than-exciting affair.

And then Newell retired.

Not to belabor a point, but if this truly is the end for Newell, he certainly accomplished great things in his run. I mean, the dude has one arm! And he challenged for the belt!
