Kamaru Usman, the UFC welterweight champion, retained his belt by knocking out Jorge Masvidal on Sunday morning.
Last year, the Nigerian dominated Masvidal over five rounds, but he wasn’t happy with his results.
Usman, on the other hand, knocked out his opponent with a devastating right hand and then followed up on the ground in their rematch.
In the main event of UFC 261 in Jacksonville, Florida, the knockout occurred at 1:02 of the second round.
Usman successfully defended his 170-pound crown.
It was the first time since 2008 that Masvidal had been knocked out by KO/TKO.
The war took place in front of a sold-out audience for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
“You said you wanted abuse in Jacksonville, Florida? Thank you so much.
In his post-fight interview, Usman said, “With my fundamentals, I am the pound-for-pound best fighter on the planet right now.”
