Jamahal Hill’s manager has provided an update following the gruesome ending to the main card opener at UFC 263.

In a light heavyweight grudge match, Hill took on Paul Craig and was locked in a nasty armbar inside the first two minutes. Hill’s arm looked to have broken, something referee Al Guinee didn’t notice despite both fighters bringing it to his attention. Mercifully, Guinee finally stopped it at the 1:59 mark.

While it looked like Hill was very badly injured, his manager Brian Butler took to Twitter to say that a member of the coaching staff told him Hill’s arm was dislocated and not broken.

The submission loss was the first professional defeat for Hill, who entered the fight ranked No. 15 in the division. “Sweet Dreams” also took to social media following the bout to send a message to his fans and thank Craig for a valuable learning experience.

With the win, Craig has now won four straight and is 4-0-1 in his last five, which includes finishes of Mauricio Rua, Gadzhimurad Antigulov and Vinicius Moreira.
