Kamaru Usman shocked the whole MMA community as he took out Jorge Masvidal. Usman kept his UFC welterweight title in the headliner of UFC 261.
Remaining true to his battle name, ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ carried devastating force behind his straight right hand. The jab promptly took the lights out of Jorge Masvidal. The move was unexpected, considering each combat sports fan expected ‘Gamebred’ to be the one getting his hand raised if the battle finished in a KO.
Usman’s win improved his record to 19-1 and extended his unbeaten run to 18 fights, including 14 straight victories in the UFC. The crowd was cheering with enthusiasm and they were cheering at the top of their lungs, ‘Get the F**K Outta Here.’ After the fight, Kamaru shared his thoughts on the game.
Jorge accepted his defeat fair and square and was not bitter about it. He said, “First time in my career, and it’s in front of all my people, my family, and my friends, so it hurts. I’ve never been knocked out in 50 pro fights. Usman showed me something that he didn’t show in the first fight. I didn’t feel his power, and that’s what happens when you get overconfident. I thought we were going to wrestle more.”
Jorge Masvidal received the second knockout loss of his 50-fight long career tonight, his first in the UFC. Despite facing Nate Diaz, Donald Cerrone, Darren Till, it was Kamaru who handed Jorge his second embarrassing loss.
This performance is a testament to Kamaru Usman’s striking ability that gets overlooked.
