UFC 245 outcomes and reveals.
LAS VEGAS – UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman promised that he would vent his dislike for Colby Covington at the Octagon inside the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday.UFC 245 outcomes and reveals are presented below.
It turns out that he was a man of his word.
Osman (16–1) knocked Covington out for an epic two-sided duel in almost two rounds of legs before defending his 170-pound title at UFC 245 via a fifth-round TKO. Covington battled through a broken jaw in round 3. And after being dropped twice in the final round, the fight turned into a bloody and swollen mess.
Usman said that this is true not only for him, but for the whole world he heard all week, the whole month since the fight was signed that Colby was in his head and this or that. He’s telling right now that he’s the best in the world because his mind is stronger than any division.
The fight was seen as a pairing between the two best wrestlers in mixed martial arts, surprising that not a single takedown was attempted in a five-round kickboxing match. Usman won one in the opening round but eventually relied on his jab and power shots.
Usman said that he was holding him with a left hook. He was kind of exaggerated and made a lot of mistakes tonight. His coaches told him to settle down and work. Sometimes he come here and just dominate his wrestling and take his strikes. Don’t live long with. IHe is the best in the world and will keep improving.
Usman, a 32-year-old native of Nigeria, dominated Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 in March to extend his first win to 15 after winning the title. But he had every need for his world-class cardio and ruthlessness as he teamed up with Covington (15-2) to set such a delicate stride that he barely moved slowly during the entire fight as he traded punches.
The 31-year-old Covington originally opposed a stay from referee Mark Goddard and ran out of the Octagon after Usman was declared the winner. Goddard waved the bout at 4:10 before Kivington dropped twice in the final minutes of the fight thanks to a large right-handed pass.
Pulled off a seven-fight win streak for Los Covington, as he took his villain and trolling character transformation and almost made it to the world title. This fight saw frequent punches and a torrent of punches, although neither fighter went down in the first four rounds. Twice Covington started with injuries with big right hands, but was able to weather the storm with a stealthy left hand to control the distance.
In the lead-up to the fight, the two shed a lot of bad blood, almost in a few encounters with Covington snuffing out Osman with his heel character and calling him “Marty Snoozeman”. That hostility continued in the Octagon where each interrogated each other for eye pain and low eruptions.
