Kamaru Usman delivered the goods last night (Sat. Feb. 13, 2021) at UFC 258 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the UFC welterweight champion ended former teammate Gilbert Burns via third-round TKO in the main event (highlights HERE).
In addition to Usman’s third-straight title defense, middleweight prospect Anthony Hernandez pulled off a huge upset with a submission win over world-class grappler Rodolfo Vieira (highlights HERE), and Julian Marquez scored a comeback submission over Maki Pitolo in his return to the Octagon after a near three-year absence (check it out HERE).
Fight fans also got to see a beautiful armbar finish by Polyana Viana as the Brazilian contender stopped Mallory Martin on the ESPN “Prelims.” That can be seen HERE.
