UFC newcomer Nico Musoke was making his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 30 against veteran Alessio Sakara, in a very tough match up on the FOX Sports 2 main card.

Sakara came out as aggressive as always and was delivering some huge blows that stumbled Musoke early, but he was able to keep his composure and focus to comeback and score the win.

After being placed on his back, Musoke was taking some big ground-and-pound from Sakara, but a slick shift of the hips and throwing up his legs led to Musoke landing a beautifully executed belly-down armbar that forced Sakara to verbally tap.
