Kamaru Usman records 13th straight UFC win

Nigerian-born Texan Kamaru Usman won his 13th successive fight on Saturday night in Las Vegas, to retain his UFC welterweight title.

Usman stopped Gilbert Burns with punches in the third round at UFC 258,

The win takes his record to 18-1, defending his title for the third time, and breaking Georges St Pierre’s consecutive welterweight victories record.

Usman was put down in the first round, but recovered impressively to stop Burns early in the third.

In the night’s other main bout, Mexican flyweight Alexa Grasso beat Maycee Barber by unanimous decision after a hard fought contest.

Four of the nine fights were decided by unanimous decision, with Kelvin Gastelum beating Ian Heinisch, Ricky Simon defeating Brian Kelleher, Belal Muhammad overcoming Dhiego Lima, and Christ Gutierrez outdoing Andre Ewell.
