UFC: Usman retains welterweight title with Masvidal knockout


Usman Mesvidal

UFC Welterweight Champion, Kamaru Usman, has knocked out Jorge Masvidal after just two rounds to retain his championship belt on Sunday morning.

The main event fight between both fighters marks the first UFC event to take place in front of a sold-out crowd of 15,000 fans inside a full-capacity Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida; the first game with fans since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Having recently defeated Masvidal last summer (July), a rematch was needed to settle the score once and for all, as Masvidal attempted to dethrone the welterweight champion in a second attempt.

Masvidal started brightly but faded as the Nigerian Nightmare, who is on a 17-fight win streak, took the spotlight and handed him his first-ever knockout defeat and in front of his home crowd.
