The UFC Welterweight champion ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ Kamaru Usman proved once again why he is the best Welterweight fighter on the planet. In the main event of UFC 258, he defeated his former teammate Gilbert Burns.
Gilbert Burns landed some heavy shots at the start of the first round that stunned Usman a little bit but after that, it was a brutal beating by the champion. Usman is known for his jabs and he used the same for Burns.
In the second round, he landed some heavy jabs that hurt Burns real bad. Burns wasn’t even able to keep his guard high and keep eating those shots. He just merely survived the bell. But in the third round, the only formality to finish the fight was remaining.
Usman did the same and finished the fight by knocking out Burns with punches and retained his Welterweight championship. Burns left the octagon with only tears in his eyes
