In the The Ultimate Fighter 28 Finale main event in Las Vegas, UFC welterweight contender Kamaru Usman steadily overwhelmed Rafael dos Anjos on his way to an impressive unanimous decision victory (50-43, 49-45, 48-47). Usman’s wrestling, pressure-based attacks, improved striking, and ground-and-pound wore down RDA and his face all bloodied and bruised.
At 9-0 in the UFC and with another top-10 win under his belt, Usman is closing in on a title shot, at the same time seemingly ending RDA’s hopes of getting back into contention at 170.
