"So, I broke my arm and I have surgery tomorrow.

"Thanks UFC for all the support and thanks everyone for rooting for me.

"So I think everything is going to be fine. Thank you."

In his post-fight interview, Muniz said of the broken arm: “I heard it snap.

“I let go not only out of respect but I’m from jiu-jitsu, I knew it could hurt him even more if I didn’t let go.

“I’m a fan of Jacare since I was a kid. He’s my idol. I hope he’s good.

"I deserve a top 15 now, I’m here to stay.”
