  • Usman bullies Masvidal to keep title in UFC 251 headliner

Kamaru Usman retained his UFC welterweight title after defeating a sluggish Jorge Masvidal on Fight Island - but spared praise for his opponent before declaring himself "a level better".

And it was the champion who was able to neutralise the early threat from Miami-native Masvidal by containing him on the canvas.

Usman was unanimously adjudged the victor by 50-45, 50-45 and 49-46 to retain his crown.

"While the global COVID-19 pandemic may have brought gloom to many families and nations, the President is delighted and gratified that our welterweight champion has lifted our spirits with another professional performance, proving that things will surely get better at the fullness of time when we remain committed to our vision". "It's about who you are as a person and the determination that drives a fighter to go from unknown to selling out arenas all over the world".

Bruno Fernandes picks one Man United player who deserves more recognition
Fernandes has noted how he likes to take risks in games, something which manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has encouraged him to do. The midfield magician arrived at Old Trafford in January and has been the catalyst for the team's brilliant form since then.

"I'd rather beat a guy with a wide margin that they never ever dream of competing with me again and that's how I'm going to approach this fight".

Masvidal famously got his start in fighting whilst brawling in backyards with the late Kimbo Slice and this game allows fans to play in backyard and kumite settings. The fans know if an opponent is a challenger or not.

Usman, who has now tied George Pierre's UFC welterweight record of 12 straight victories, is the Ultimate Fighter 21 tournament victor. Fortunately, there are a number of of 145-pound contenders on impressive runs, including Chan Sung Jung and the victor of the upcoming Zabit Magomedsharipov- Yair Rodriguez matchup, that would make for outstanding challenges.
