The Nigerian began the first round in high spirit, landing hammer shots on Masvidal popularly known as Gambred.

Usman, who knocked out Masvidal in front of a 15,000 capacity crowd, landed five hammer shots that took the lights off the American.

He knocked Masvidal out at one minute, two seconds in the second round.

Usman recorded the second-highest winning streak in UFC history with the victory on Sunday.
