Elbow strikes to the head from Muniz as Fabinski continues to try to work a takedown attempt. A few left hands land for Fabinski. Now a knee to the body.

They briefly scramble as Muniz turns away from the cage, but then Fabinski brings him down. Muniz working a guillotine choke though, but that doesn’t work out.
