Kevin Holland (26-11 MMA, 13-8 UFC) got dropped by Michal Oleksiejczuk (19-8 MMA, 7-6 UFC), but recovered. Then he grabbed Oleksiejczuk’s arm and locked up an armbar that Oleksiejczuk refused to tap to. Ultimately, the referee stopped the fight when it appeared Oleksiejczuk’s arm had been broken in a brutal finish.
