Another UFC event, another mangled limb. UFC 263 kicked off with a brutal submission as Paul Craig torqued Jamahal Hill’s arm until it flopped in the wind as he wound up elbows and punches as his opponent sat in triangle choke position.
Craig and Hill entered the octagon looking to settle a score after Hill accused the Scotsman of unleashing his followers on him before the fight. The two nearly came to blows in the fighter hotel on fight week.
But it was Craig who had the final word as the ref stopped the fight at the 1:59 mark of the first round. Check out the reactions to the brutal submission.

He bashes their brains in with a baseball bat is what he does. Now, Werner, I'm gonna ask you one last goddamn time, if you still respectfully refuse, I'm callin' the Bear Jew over. Unreal performance @PCraigmma #UFC263— Jimmy Crute (@CruteJim) June 13, 2021
