Kamaru Usman suffered his first defeat at the UFC as British fighter, Leon Edwards knocked him out with a powerful head kick.

It was a shocking night as the best pound for pound fighter lost his bout with just a minute from time as he failed to recover from a head kick.

The kick that knocked out Kamaru

Leon Edward last lost in a UFC fight against Kamaru Usman seven years ago but has since won ten straight fights to earn another contest against the Nigerian Nightmare.

The kick dispatched with a shin bone across the jaw helped the British fighter overcome Kamaru after Fallon behind in previous rounds.

Leon Edwards showed early signs of victory in the first round as he became the first person to put Kamaru Usman on his back and almost forced a tap out before the time expired.

However, Kamaru was dominant in the second, third and fourth round but couldn’t find a decisive knock out kick.

Heading into the fifth round, it seemed that Kamaru will take the bout by judges decision. However, Leon Edwards had other plans as he knocks out the undefeated Kamaru Usman with a soccer kick.
