MMAOddsBreaker’s Submission of the Month for January 2017‘s Submission of the Month for January 2017 goes to former UFC featherweight Diego Brandao at EFN Fight Nights Global 58 on January 28th. The TUF 14 winner went to battle for the first time since being released by the UFC a year ago. Brandao took on Russia’s Murad Machaev in his opponent’s home country and defeated him via helicopter armbar in the early going of the second round of action. It was an impressive outing by the Brazilian, and a picture-perfect way for him to return to the win column following his release. If Brandao is planning on making a return to the big show, then things are already off to an excellent start for the 29-year-old. Congratulations, Diego Brandao!
