The UFC has officially crowned its first African born champion. Kamaru Usman won the UFC welterweight title in dominating fashion by beating Tyron Woodley, who hadn’t tasted defeat in four years and was well on course to becoming the greatest welterweight of all time.
Usman outscored the three-time defending champion Woodley on all three judge scorecards (50-44, 50-44 and 50-45), in arguably one of the most one-sided challenger vs champion fights in UFC history. According to ESPN, Usman landed 336 total strikes while Woodley only managed 60.
“I’ll be honest, I might not be the best striker or best wrestler in the world,” Usman said. “But when it comes to mixing this s**t up, I’m the best f—ing welterweight on the planet right now.”
Usman who was born in Benin City, Nigeria dominated the welterweight title fight from start to finish to become the first African born champion in the UFC history. Usman’s UFC record now stands at 10-0.
