Kamaru Usman Beats Jorge Masvidal At UFC 251 To Retain Title

Kamaru Usman defeated Jorge Masvidal by unanimous decision in the main event of UFC 251 on Sunday morning in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Usman (17-1) retained his UFC welterweight title and remained unbeaten in the UFC. His 12 straight wins ties lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for the longest active winning streak in the UFC and equals Georges St-Pierre for the longest winning streak in UFC welterweight history.

This was Usman’s second title defense. He beat Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 to win the welterweight belt and successfully defended it against Colby Covington at UFC 245 in December.

Masvidal (35-14) defeated Darren Till, Ben Askren and Nate Diaz in an eight-month span last year to earn the title shot against Usman.
