For the second straight UFC pay-per-view event, a fighter suffered a broken bone. This time, it was middleweight veteran Jacare Souza, who had his arm snapped by Andre Muniz on the final fight before the UFC 262 pay-per-view main card.

Muniz trapped Souza’s right arm in an armbar as the two hit the canvas, and the arm snapped in sickening fashion as he extended his hips and pulled the limb. The official time of stoppage was 3:59 of round one.

Replays including audio capture the moment the arm breaks. It was not for the faint of heart, just as former middleweight champ Chris Weidman’s broken leg turned stomachs at UFC 261 this past month.

Here’s how fighters – including Weidman – reacted to Muniz’s win and Souza’s broken arm.
