The fight that everyone wanted to see finally took place on ‘Fight Island’ at UFC 251, and it gave us a definitive answer regarding just who is the most dominant welterweight in the business. That title remains around the waist of Kamaru Usman after he handled Jorge Masvidal in their short-notice title bout on Saturday night.
Usman landed far more shots than his opponent could manage throughout the five rounds, and he also managed five takedowns to none for Masvidal. In total, he controlled 16:38 of the fight, while Masvidal controlled 0 of 25 minutes. Though Masvidal did make it to the end, it was a unanimous decision that saw Usman’s hand raised in victory. He never gave up, in true Masvidal fashion, but on this night Usman was just much too good for him to handle.
