Taking Souza’s back at the fence, Muniz rode too high as he attempted to secure his hooks and possibly set up a rear-naked choke, however, with Souza’s right arm trapped between Muniz’s arm and upper body, as the latter twisted and bellyed down on the canvas, an audible snap could be heard as Souza’s upper arm appeared to have broken.
