The best part is Usman’s knockout came right after Masvidal was clowning around in the octagon.

Getting the knockout right after someone teases you has to feel great.
Usman is cementing his place in history. The 33-year-old has successfully defended the UFC Welterweight Championship four times in a row, including twice over Masvidal.
You don’t mess with Marty from Nebraska.
Masvidal gave Usman some nice recognition after the fight.
Masvidal: I thought we were gonna wrestle more, I was ready to wrestle 25 minutes. All the props to him in the world, he caught me by surprise. He's got my number, nothing I can say but he won this fair and square and God bless him, man #UFC261
