Kamaru Usman Defeats Colby Covington By 5th Round Knock Out

US-based UFC champion Kamaru Usman successfully retained his welterweight championship belt with a fifth-round TKO win over Colby Covington in the main event of UFC 245 in Las Vegas.

According to the Bleaching Report, the two welterweight engaged in an all-out war for nearly five full rounds before Usman put the exclamation point on his defense.

The win gives Usman the first successful title defense of his career. He wrested the title away from longtime champion Tyron Woodley in March. Covington came into the bout ranked as the No. 1 contender for the belt outside of the former champion.

Usman’s rise to the top of the division has been marked by dominant performances. He is now a perfect 11-0 in the UFC and has taken on some of the top talents the division has to offer in Woodley, Rafael dos Anjos and Demian Maia.

  1. ONE Funny thing I found about boxing match is the fact that, you will just look at somebody who has never offended you in anyway before and all of a sudden you start serving him or her some really hot punches all in the name of game/sport.
    Same with wrestling.

    As for me, I dont think I can do any of this sports.
    Because in an event where I can nolonger bear the hot blows coming from my opponent, I will not hesitate to go for my loaded Gun… AND “Bang! Bang!!
    *Shikenah* End of discussion.

    I take a stroll…
