Adam Wieczorek wasn’t expected to beat Arjan Bhullar, much less in history-making fashion.

But that’s exactly what the Polish heavyweight did on Saturday, handing the previously undefeated Bhullar his first career loss with a second-round omoplata submission at UFC on FOX 29 in Glendale, Ariz.

It is only the second omoplata submission in UFC history, following Ben Saunders’s August 2014 win over Chris Heatherly.

Making the finish even more spectacular was the fact that Bhullar had been using his wrestling to control the action up until that point. However, two minutes into round two, Wieczorek turned the tables with the arm-and-shoulder lock before securing the surprising finish.
