Diego Brandao fought at EFN on FightPass and pulled off a helicopter armbar

Diego Brandao (20-11) fought Murad Machaev (20-1) in Russia at EFN 58 on FightPass today.  The former UFC Lightweight pulled off an amazing submission.  He utilized a helicopter armbar to earn the victory.  Check it out below courtesey of Twitter user, Streetfight Bancho.

Brandao was competing for the first time since being released by the UFC after running into some legal issues. The UFC cut him as a result.  He was 6-4 under the UFC umbrella and won The Ultimate Fighter Season 14.  He defeated current UFC stars Dennis Bermudez and Bryan Caraway during that TUF season.

A second chance in the UFC is no guarantee.  He will have to wait and see what unfolds in the months to come.  He is undoubtedly a great fighter and has the talent to compete at the highest level.
