“One of mixed martial arts’ most improbable success stories is making its way to the silver screen. Notorious Nick, a new feature-length biopic depicting the rise of one-handed fighter Nick Newell, is the latest passion project of Hollywood producers Howard Burd and Mark DiSalle, the latter of Kickboxer and Bloodsport fame. And for the now-retired Newell, who figured the next chapter of his life would be quieter than the one that saw him get punched in the mug for a living, the reality of what is about to come is the best kind of unknown.” mmafighting.com
