JIU-JITSU fighter Dimitri Salem has his arm snapped at the ADCC West Coast trials by a kimura armlock after he refused to tap-out.
Grappling star Ethan Crelinsten had his opponent trapped in his second match of the tournament and was expecting his stricken rival to submit.
But, instead of tapping the mat to admit defeat and break the hold, the struggling fighter refused to quit and instead suffered the sickening snap.

Crelinsten held his opponent in a hopeless position for a number seconds with the referee right on top of the action to spot a submission.
But nothing came from the fighter who eventually had his right limb snapped.
The American winner was clearly distressed and upset that his opponent had not submitted and avoided the horror injury.
Crelinsten trains at Montreal’s Tristar gym where MMA heroes Georges St-Pierre and Ryan MacDonald work.
Most MMA fans who watched the footage online were quick to sympathise with Crelinsten as he was caught up in the incident.

adamjmachin said: “It was up to his opponent to tap , he had pleeeeenty of time, his exit was blocked by Ethan’s leg he had not possible way out, flexibility is not a defense.
“What was he supposed to do , let go of a submission because an opponent would not tap? Not at this level of competition.
“This is the top level of grappling, there is no room for second guessing your opponent.
“Simple, you apply the submission until your opponent taps and then you release instantly. Anyone who competes understands this.”
