UFC 258 is in the books, and it saw an intriguing welterweight title bout between two longtime friends and teammates. Gilbert Burns stunned and hurt Kamaru Usman early, and looked like he was poised to take the belt, but the champion showed his veteran savvy. He weathered the storm, then eventually started landing very good jabs and straight punches that eventually hurt and finished Burns.

Usman once again defended his title, continued his impressive run at 170 lbs, and remained undefeated in the UFC.

The co-main event saw Alexa Grasso pull off an impressive upset over the bigger and extensively hyped Maycee Barber. There were also other fun contests on the card.

Here’s a quick twitter thread with a brief recap and analysis of the event, that’s fitting for people’s social media era attention spans:
