Usman smashed Masvidal in their possess rematch to retain the UFC welterweight title. Usman not only outwrestled Masvidal, but he also outstruck him on the feet and then scored the knockout blow in the 2nd spherical. Usman also knocked out Covington previously when they fought at UFC 245 in December 2019.

If you inquire Masvidal, though, the rematch will be in the favor of Covington. As Masvidal advised ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Usman will beat Covington once again when they rematch (h/t Farah Hannoun of MMAjunkie.com).
“I believe Kamaru keeps his hands up and will come to battle Colby the same struggle that he did the to start with time. He just puts a comprehensive beating on him. Colby will try and get some takedowns on him, and it may well not work. Colby’s gas tank with other wrestlers is not a thing he needs to do. Which is why he did not get a shot in the initially fight simply because he is aware he’s gonna have to get drained,” Masvidal reported.
“As extended as Kamaru is in wrestling shape and comes in the exact same as the 1st time, palms up, pressuring him, I assume he breaks him once again. His palms are wherever they want to be at appropriate now. I bet he’s gonna have extra self-confidence than ever for the reason that he is aware I’m any person that’s hardly ever been concluded so he can unquestionably consider that with a pride of honor, place his challenging head on, preserve obtaining the function. I believe he receives a end on Colby.”
