Kamaru Usman Knocks Out Jorge Masvidal, Retains UFC Title (Photos, Video) by NewsOneNigeria1: 6:05am On Apr 25
Jorge Masvidal knocked out cold by brutal Kamaru Usman at UFC 261

Usman successfully defended his welterweight title in his rematch with Masvidal who was left prone on the canvas.

Kamaru Usman retained his welterweight with a stunning KO of Jorge Masvidal at UFC 261.

The rivals were meeting for a second time in less than a year following Usman's points victory last July.

But on this occasion the champion needed a little over six minutes to retain his title, rendering Masvidal unconscious with a stunning right hand.

He followed up with several unanswered blows on the canvas before referee Herb Dean stepped in.

Usman has now made four defences of his 170lb title and is expected to face another rematch later this year against Colby Covington whom he stopped in December 2019.

"You all said you wanted violence... you're welcome," said the champion.

"No disrespect... I want to say thank you to my man Jorge. You elevated me, you made me have to... it's been a while since I've been nervous before a fight but he elevated me.

"He made me go to the workshop, I had to sharpen my tools to come out and put on a performance like that. I am still getting better."

Masvisal added: "First time [I've been knocked out] in my career and it's front of my people, my family and my friends so it hurts.

"I've never been knocked out in 54 fights. Usman showed me something I didn't see in the first fight. I didn't see his power.

"I thought we were going to wrestle more, I was ready to wrestle for 25 minutes. All the props in the world to him, he caught me by surprise and he has my number. There's nothing I can say but he wont his fair and square."

Khaki no be leather!

Knocked the smile off his face. If we don't smile here, why should the opponent smile?!

All the title fights were amazing. On some mornings the octagon comes alive from electrifying matches, today was no different. MMA is still the better option when compared to boxing. The upsets come in spades.

Jorge Masvidal is a fraud and I’m glad he finally got exposed. Usman is a beast and the best fighter in the division right now.

Another fight with Colby will be next and the outcome won’t be different from the first. Thereafter, he should try his luck in the light heavyweight division as there won’t be any serious fighter left in the welterweight division to fight.

Masvidal is all hype and nothing else. He got lucky against Ben Askren and people thought he’s one tough dude. Colby is a far better fighter than him.
