UFC-Pittsburgh results: Kamaru Usman right hand proves problematic for Sergio Moraes


Kamaru Usman scored the biggest win of his burgeoning career, devastating Sergio Moraes with a crushing blow.

The welterweight matchup took place on the FS1-televised prelims of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 116 from PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.

Usman was on point from the start, wobbling Moraes with a low kick and then dropping him briefly with a right hand. Unsurprisingly, Usman refused to follow to the floor, and Moraes crawled back to his feet and looked to brawl. Haymakers followed, but Usman slipped well and scored a beautiful finish with a destructive straight right to the chin. Moraes crashed to the floor, and Usman landed one hammerfist to an already vanquished foe.

Usman (11-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) now sports a 10-fight winning streak and is due for a big fight; “The Nigerian Nightmare” suggested former UFC lightweight champ and current welterweight contender Rafael dos Anjos (27-9 MMA, 16-7 UFC) as a possible opponent.

Moraes (12-3-1 MMA, 6-2-1 UFC) loses for the first time in eight appearances.
