UFC 245 lived up to pre fight hype and it gets a 10 on 10 from the action standpoint. Tt ended with a clear decision in favor of Usman and has turned a new page in this bitter MMA rivalry.
This was a nail biting fight from start to finish. Many times we see bouts between serious rivals and notice that there is an element of caution because the 2 fighters have done thier homework. This fight was different as both fighters were aggressive to the point of pulling them apart.
Kamaru and Colby came out throwing bombs right from the word go. Despite both mens wrestling records, neither looked to accomplish a takedown. There was true bad blood in this fight and the two men were gunning to embarrass their rival with a KO finish.
Though the final result went Usman’s way, Covington also had some great moments.
Hate him or love him, hes as strong as they come and he almost nearly matched Usman blow to blow in this bout. He appears to have suffered a broken jaw in the third round with a stiff punch from Usman.
Almost every round was closely fought, however, it appeared Usmans blows did more damage.
Covington was not happy about the stoppage, claiming he was OK and didnt even stick around for a post-fight interview.
While Covington deserves praise for a gutsy show, Usman has managed to hold on to the undisputed UFC Welterweight Champion title.
