Sarah Moras pulls off a submission so gross Daniel Cormier doesn't even want to see it again


Sarah Moras may have been a significant underdog coming into her UFC 215 fight with Ashlee Evans-Smith, but she pulled off a first-round submission win that seemed to surprise even herself – while totally grossing out commentator and UFC light heavyweight Daniel Cormier.

After getting taken down quickly by Evans-Smith (5-3 MMA, 2-3 UFC), Moras (5-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) rebounded just as quickly, locking up the armbar from her back and continually adjusting until she flipped Evans-Smith onto her back and extended the arm.

That’s when things got a little icky, as Moras straightened the arm and Evans-Smith tried to break the grip with her leg. Before she could, her right arm bent in the wrong direction, prompted a quick tap and a stoppage (via Twitter):

The sight was unpleasant enough that even a professional tough guy like Cormier didn’t want to sit through it again. After the slow-motion replay confirmed the sudden give in Evans-Smith’s arm, Cormier confided to his broadcast partner Joe Rogan that he had to avert his eyes for that one.

“I didn’t want to see it,” Cormier said. “I looked away, Joe. I can’t even watch it.”

When informed during her post-fight interview that she’d likely dislocated her opponent’s arm, Moras was less queasy about it.

“Ah, I hope so,” she said.
