UFC 245 video: Watch Kamaru Usman break Colby Covington’s jaw in super slow motion

New, 16 comments

Watch super slow mo footage of Kamaru Usman shatter Colby Covington’s jaw at UFC 245.

UFC 245 ‘Fight Motion’ has just dropped, so now you can watch Kamaru Usman break Colby Covington’s jaw in super slow motion, per the UFC’s official YouTube account.

Check out all the UFC 245 super slow mo highlights below (h/t MMA Mania).

Usman, the reigning UFC welterweight champion, went to war with Covington for almost five full rounds, eventually finishing ‘Chaos’ in the final minute of the fight after dropping him twice. ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ is reported to have broke Covington’s jaw in the third round and, per Dan Lambert, Covington is expected to undergo treatment from a specialist doctor in Florida.

UFC 245 marked Usman’s first title defense, and the Nigerian-born talent is expected to return to the Octagon sometime in the new year to defend his welterweight title against either Jorge Masvidal or Leon Edwards. While fans would prefer to see Usman fight Masvidal, the champ feels ‘Rocky’ is more deserving of a title shot.

“Honestly, I’m being honest, if you talk about a guy who is deserving of a title shot, it’s Leon Edwards... He’s a guy who I know is tough, and I recognize his talents for sure.”
