Instant replay was put to the test on Saturday at UFC Vegas 38 after an accidental clash of heads marred Kyle Daukaus’ submission of Kevin Holland.

Referee Dan Miragliotta called for a replay from the Nevada Athletic Commission’s replay official even before Daukaus sunk in a rear-naked choke in the wake of the accidental foul, which briefly knocked out Holland and sent him scrambling for survival.

After a few moments, Miragliotta, the sole arbiter of the contest, ruled that the headbutt invalidated Daukaus’ submission and declared the bout a no-contest at the 3:43 mark of the first round.
