This is the wince-inducing moment UFC superstar Paul Craig appeared to snap the arm of his opponent at last night's event.

The Coatbridge fighter was facing undefeated Jamahal Hill at UFC 263 in Arizona last night and took the scrap to his opponent early on.

Using a brutal armbar, the Scot ended the bout after just less than two minutes of the first round.

It earned him his 15th pro win and a $50,000 bonus from the premier MMA company in the world.

Despite Hill's arm appearing to be broken, UFC president Dana White confirmed it had just been dislocated and was popped back into place by medics after the fight.

Speaking in the Octagon after his victory, Craig said: "I am the jiu jitsu guy, you either tap, nap or it snaps and tonight it happened to snap. One hell of an opponent there, walking out of that octagon, he took shots after his arm broke, that's tough."

He added: "The crowd says it all, that's one hell of a tight armbar. For him not to tap, what are you Yanks made of?"
