Pic: Kamaru Usman inks NFT deal with UFC Strike, gets gaudy gold chain featuring Jorge Masvidal knockout

UFC Strike recently unveiled a new series of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) called “Lights Out” featuring “the cleanest KOs in UFC history.” Making the list is Kamaru Usman’s second-round destruction of longtime rival Jorge Masvidal at UFC 261 back in April 2021.

Highlights of the one-punch finish are still available here.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

“The Nigerian Nightmare” recently inked a sponsorship deal with UFC Strike and as a result, was gifted an ugly gold chain to commemorate his performance. Color me nostalgic, but I feel like the panther from LL Cool J’s 1989 masterpiece should sue for royalties.

Sorry folks, the Usman “Lights Out” pack is currently sold out.

The reigning UFC welterweight champion will have a chance to add to his KO collection when he collides with streaking 170-pound contender Leon Edwards in the UFC 278 pay-per-view (PPV) main event this Sat. night (Aug. 20) in Salt Lake City.

And send “Rocky” into the NFT hall of fame.
