UFC 262 video: Andre Muniz breaks Jacare Souza’s arm with gruesome submission in first round 

Photo by Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLCAndre Muniz proclaimed prior to UFC 262 that he had superior grappling to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and it took him just under four minutes to prove it. After taking Souza’s back against the cage, Muniz fell into an armbar as he looked to become the first person in mixed martial arts history to finish the legendary Brazilian by submission. A moment later, Muniz locked up the armbar and a sickening thud was heard throughout the arena as Souza’s arm snapped and the stoppage came just a split second later. Replays showed Muniz positioning Souza’s forearm behind his back as he locked up the submission, which led to the bone being broken. The official end time in the fight came at 3:59 in the first round. “I heard it snap,” Muniz said about the broken arm. “I let go not only out of respect but I’m from jiu-jitsu, I knew it could hurt him even more if I didn’t let go. “I’m a fan of ‘Jacare’ since I was a kid. He’s my idol. I hope he’s good. I deserve a top 15 now, I’m here to stay.” HE BROKE HIS ARM @AndreMunizUFC submits Jacare Souza in Round 1!! #UFC262 pic.twitter.com/dH6tn41xhZ— UFC Canada (@UFC_CA) May 16, 2021 Looking like he had something to prove, Souza was launching bombs on the feet as soon as he was released from the corner while still being wary of the power coming back from Muniz. While “Jacare” was the first to look for a takedown, it was Muniz who planted the legendary Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner on the mat in the opening round as he sought to find a good position to set up his grappling game. It was a scramble near the cage that saw Muniz hop on Souza’s back but he was a little too high to actually get his hooks into secure the position but that ultimately led to seeing the opening for the armbar. WOW @andremunizufc is able to earn a submission against Jacare at #UFC262 pic.twitter.com/45NMJCn4TF— ESPN MMA (@espnmma) May 16, 2021 As soon as Muniz slid to the ground, he latched onto the arm and kicked out his hips in order to extend the submission. A second later the fight was finished as ‘Jacare’ held onto his injured arm as medical personnel rushed into offer him assistance. With the win, Muniz remains undefeated in the UFC while picking up the biggest victory of his career while now holding the title as the only fighter to ever finish Souza by submission.

UFC 262 results: Edson Barboza faceplants Shane Burgos with bizarre delayed knockout in third round

Photo by Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLCEdson Barboza has earned plenty of highlight-reel victories but his latest against Shane Burgos at UFC 262 even had him shocked for a brief moment. After engaging in a war with Shane Burgos for the better part of 10 minutes, Barboza connected with a ferocious right hand that landed flush. Burgos seemed to absorb the shot, but then just a few seconds later, his eyes rolled back and he crashed face first to the canvas. The fight was stopped immediately after Burgos hit the ground in one of the more bizarre finishes in recent memory. The stoppage came at 1:16 in the third round as Barboza picks up his second win in a row in the featherweight division. “I’m very happy,” Barboza said about the win. “Look at me, I think that’s the Fight of the Night. 3-0 at featherweight. I definitely feel more healthy. Guys in featherweight, I’m coming for all you guys.” SHUT IT DOWN @EdsonBarbozaJR just took care of business. #UFC262 pic.twitter.com/T2CzwvcdyR— UFC (@ufc) May 16, 2021 Well known for his leg kicks, Barboza was quick to attack Burgos with a brutal series of shots to the calf that immediately began paying dividends. In return, Burgos began firing a jab right down the middle that popped Barboza in the eye repeatedly, which left the Brazilian with a cut on the side of his face. Burgos was also starting to attack to the body before then going back up top to the head but Barboza quickly countered with a huge spinning wheel kick and a counter hook that rattled the New York native. As the fight continued, Burgos started to put the pressure on Barboza, which didn’t leave the prolific kicker with as much room to work. Still, Barboza continued to find a way to attack the lead leg but Burgos refused to back down while constantly coming back up top with a heavy lead jab. With five minutes remaining, Burgos was more aggressive as he looked to secure the win but that also put him in Barboza’s firing range. As the fighters traded punches, Barboza blasted Burgos with the right hand that wobbled and eventually put him down on the canvas as the fight came to an end. Barboza was a perennial contender in the lightweight division but after knocking off Burgos on Saturday night, he’s quickly climbing the ranks at 145 pounds as he surely seeks to eventually compete for UFC gold in his new home at featherweight.
