Kamaru Usman Defeats Colby Covington Via Unanimous Decision To Retain Title At UFC 268

Kamaru Usman defended his welterweight championship, defeating his rival Colby Covington by unanimous decision.

Usman dropped Covington twice in the second round, nearly finishing him. But Covington recovered and was competitive for the rest of the fight, keeping a high pace, pinning Usman to the fence and also landing solid punches and a head kick.

Still, Usman connected on his attacks, too, and defended takedowns effectively. He performed at a high enough level to prevent the judges from taking away his belt.

In the end, the two rivals shook hands, a gesture that some would have not predicted after a year of trash talk and insults.

Usman has now defended his title five times and is marching closer to potentially usurping Georges St-Pierre as the greatest welterweight of all time.

He said earlier this week that he would like to face Saúl Álvarez in a crossover boxing match.
