Kamaru Usman retained his UFC welterweight title with a brutal knockout win over Jorge Masvidal.

There was a full crowd in attendance for UFC 261 in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday night.

Usman gave them a main event finish to remember.

‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ dominated Masvidal on the way to a decision win when the two men last year.

This time, however, he was in no mood to hear the final bell.

A huge right hand flattened Masvidal a minute into the second round, with a few follow-up shots sealing the deal.

It marked the first time in 13 years that ‘Gamebred’ had been stopped by strikes.

Usman is now expected to rematch with Colby Covington, who he knocked out in December 2019.
