Andre Muniz earned his sixth straight win and in quick fashion at UFC Vegas 9, submitting Bartosz Fabinski in the first round via armbar.
At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Bartosz Fabinski had been lined up for a fight on the doomed UFC London card. He would end up fighting that week — against fellow UFC fighter Darren Stewart, in the main event of Cage Warriors 113. Fabinski took home the win that night. Prior to that fight, Fabinski had won three of his last four fights against the likes of Emil Meek and Gareth McLennan.
At UFC Vegas 9, Fabinski returned, this time paired up with Brazil’s Andre Muniz, a two-time Contender Series winner on a five-fight win streak. Muniz was looking to go 2-0 inside the UFC. Muniz made his debut in 2019, picking up a decision win over Antonio Arroyo in November.
Fabinski opened up fast and was in on a takedown fifteen seconds into the bout. Muniz did a good job of defending and landed some hard elbows to the head of Fabinski. Fabinski kept fighting for the takedown, and eventually went for the double leg but went right into a guillotine attempt by Muniz. He escaped and immediately postured up to land ground and pound from full guard. However Muniz quickly threw up a triangle attempt, then converted to an armbar and Fabinski tapped immediately! Out of nowhere, what a win by Andre Muniz!

Andre Muniz continues to be an interesting player at middleweight. Six wins in a row surely has to have him in the running for a decent name next to at 185 pounds.
