Kamaru Usman put Jorge Masvidal to SLEEP once and for all!

If we talked about who could potentially put Masvidal to sleep, most people wouldn’t consider Usman among the top news. However, he proved us wrong with a fantastic performance last week. Catching Masvidal off guard during their bout, “The Nigerian Nightmare” successfully put his opponent to sleep with a brutal right straight move. The Nigerian-American fighter is improving every fight!

With this win, who would dare to claim that Usman is not the better warrior? He and Masvidal entered the octagon at the UFC 261, the first fighting event with 100% full capacity. This time, the card delivered many excellent matches. On one side, Masvidal just came off a loss against the current Welterweight Champion. Nevertheless, not many were expecting to see him getting another knockout finish so soon, as his rival (Usman) was more famous for being a wrestler.

During the first round, Usman tried to get the timing right while landing jabs to Masvidal’s body. His rival fought back with a flying knee but missed the opportunity, letting Usman benefited with a takedown. In the next round, Usman delivered more punches when Masvidal responded with hands down and a smile. Things get interesting when Masvidal became too cocky, then was put to sleep with an overhand right, ending the night. This moment would probably go down as one of the most jaw-dropping knockouts in UFC history.

What’s next?

With this victory, Usman solids his stance among his competitors. With the record of defeating number 1 to 4 ranked fighters in his division, his next move could be a rematch with Colby Covington. On the other hand, we could see the Masvidal era is getting near its end. At the end of the day, he would remain an elite fighter.
