The loser of three straight fights, Alessio Sakara came out swinging at UFC Fight Night 30 like he was fighting for his job.

Unfortunately for the American Top Team Fighter, it didn't take long for his wildness to catch up to him. Making his UFC debut, Nico Musoke pounced on an opening and scored a victory with a sweet armbar in their middleweight bout.

"That's what I get paid for," said a smiling Musoke.

Sakara dropped Musoke in one of the fight's first exchanges and followed up, but couldn't put Musoke away. The Stockholm native got back to his feet and turned it into a slugfest.

Later in the round, the fight transitioned into a ground battle. Sakara had top position when Musoke pulled out the winning armbar out of nowhere. Sakara verbally submitted at the 3:07 mark.

"I'm so damn happy to finally be here," said Musoke (11-2, 1 NC). "Thank you."

The 32-year-old Sakara dropped to 15-11 (1 NC) with his fourth straight defeat.
