Kamaru Usman was the first who dropped down after a body kick in the first seconds' fo the first round. It was nothing serious rather a loss of footing.

2nd Round: Just Keep Punching, Just Keep Punching

Usman and Covington blinded by haterade seemed to forget any strategy or defense they just kept jabbing and jabbing each other. I mean just kept it going!

Both fighters used predominantly their leading arms to jab each other faces. We could barely see any body shots, most of the shots were aimed at each opponents heads. That being said Usman landed a few body shots that Covington did not enjoy.

3rd Round: Eye Poke and Broken Jaw?

After the eventful 2nd round we could see a more tactical round resulting from both fighters running out of breath after a very eventful 1st and 2nd rounds!

Kamaru Usman seemed to conserve stamina better and he kept landing a bunch nasty body shots.

Just one minute before the end of the 3rd round Covington's aggressive advances led to an accidental poke into Usman's eye.

Usman in return hit Covington so hard that he said to his coaching staff that Usman broke his jaw. Respect to Covington for starting the 4th round!

4th Round: Broken Jaw Does Not Mean Its Game Over!

Covington came back very strong hammering Usman really hard. Usman did not seem to worry much about that.

5th Round: Late KO End The Fight

Usman's late 5th round jab sent Covington to the ground for the first time in the fight. Covington could not recover fast enough and after finding his feet for a brief period of time Usman sent him back to the ground 4:10 and the referee was forced to stop the fight.
