In the main event, Kamaru Usman defeated Colby Covington by unanimous decision in a close encounter to defend his welterweight crown. ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ started off impressively, dominating his arch-rival in the first two rounds, but ‘Chaos’ made a surprising comeback in the later rounds to make things highly competitive.
In the co-main event, strawweight champion Rose Namajunas retained her title by beating Zhang Weili via a razor close split decision after a five-round war.
