UFC 262 video: Jordan Wright demolishes Jamie Pickett with flurry of elbows, knees and punches

Photo by Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLCJordan Wright kept his 100-percent finishing rate intact with his latest win at UFC 262. A blistering series of elbows against the cage as Wright stuffed a takedown attempt from Jamie Pickett was the beginning of the end once he recognized his opponent was hurt. Wright followed up on the elbows with several huge knees from the clinch and eventually a barrage of punches on the ground that gave the referee no choice but to stop the contest. The end came at just 1:04 in the opening round. “As soon as I saw his legs buckle, I knew it was only a matter of time,” Wright said about his latest win. “I have 100 percent finish rate, I’m really good of seeing when people are hurt. I took advantage of that.” OH MY GOODNESS Jordan Wright just DID THAT. #UFC262 pic.twitter.com/diGljpgC8h— UFC (@ufc) May 16, 2021 A wild exchange opened the fight, which immediately saw Pickett get tagged with a couple of stiff punches and he decided to slow down the action by looking for the takedown. That’s when Wright unloaded with rapid-fire elbows from the clinch that saw Pickett drop to his knees momentarily after absorbing the damage. Once he smelled blood in the water, Wright began looking for the finish with the knees from the clinch that put Pickett down on the mat and he had no intention of letting the Contender Series veteran back up again. Now 12-1 with one no contest, Wright seems to live by the philosophy of go big or go home and it appears he’s going to do everything possible to keep his finishing rate at 100 percent as he moves forward in his UFC career.

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.
