Watch a preview for the latest edition of “The Thrill and the Agony,” which goes behind the scenes of UFC 261.
At the event, which took place April 24 at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., welterweight champion Kamaru Usman (19-1 MMA, 14-0 UFC) defeated Jorge Masvidal (35-14 MMA, 12-7 UFC) with a brutal second-round knockout in the night’s headliner.
Usman’s victory left no doubt about his dominance over Masvidal, whom he defeated nine months earlier by clear unanimous decision after “Gamebred” took the fight on six days’ notice.
In addition, Rose Namajunas (10-4 MMA, 8-3 UFC) became the first two-time strawweight champion in UFC history by scoring a first-round knockout of Zhang Weili (21-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) with a picture-perfect head kick.
In a preview of “The Thrill and the Agony” special from UFC 261, which is available for UFC Fight Pass subscribers, we get an all-access look at the immediate aftermath of Usman and Namajunas’ wins.
