    With new Hollywood biopic on the way, retirement is turning rather surreal for Nick Newell

    By Shaun Al-Shatti @shaunalshatti Sep 21, 2016, 1:00p

    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.

    I wonder if they'll tell the story completely true.......or give it the feel good ending of a title win, not the loss?

    You'd think they'd go with the true story but you may be onto something

    Barely any true stories are told true......they always change bits to improve the story they wish it told.
