Kamaru Usman defeated Jorge Masvidal by winning by a unanimous decision in the fight of the UFC 251 evening



Kamaru Usman defeated Jorge Masvidal by winning by a unanimous decision in the fight of the UFC 251 evening, retaining his semi-middle weight champion title.

Kamaru Usman's duel (17-1 MMA, 12-0 UFC) with Jorge Masvidal (35-13 MMA, 12-6 UFC) was the main duel of the evening of the first gala, which took place on "Fight Island" on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Masvidal started the fight sharply, but as time passed Usman was gaining the lead and took control in the fifth round. The champion neutralized his rival by doing what was necessary to secure the victory and maintain the title. Usman won all twelve of his fights in UFC and for the second time successfully defended his belt.

Masvidal started the fight with kicks in the leg. Usman intercepted one of them and after the overthrow he took the position from above in full throat, but Masvidal twisted and managed to get back to his stall. "Gamebred" returned to the kicks on his legs and hit him with a couple of targeted blows before Usman entered the clinch. After a brief inspection in the clinch, the fight returned to the middle of Oktagon. Usman was pushing forward, but the blows from the counter caused him some problems.
