UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman's One And Only Defeat In MMA

UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman's One And Only Defeat In MMA

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman suffered his one and only MMA defeat in just his second fight of his professional career.

Usman, 33, has been extremely dominant in the UFC with 12 big Octagon wins next to his name.

In just his second fight of his MMA career, Usman succumbed to the submission skills of Jose Caceres who caught him in a rear-naked choke at CFA 11 in May 2013.

Usman has since gone undefeated, winning The Ultimate Fighter and the UFC welterweight title.

And he gave a detailed reflection of his first defeat when he appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast last December.

What Jorge Masvidal Told Kamaru Usman After Defeat At UFC 251

published at4 months ago

"Like, within 15 seconds... boom, threw him down, full mount. And I'm kinda throwing punches. I didn't really know what I was doing. I'm throwing punches, and I'm trying to elbow him. And Jose Caceres is like, I think, 6'2'... I don't know, he's well taller than me... long limbs.

"I'm in full mount. He throws his legs around my body. I never seen no shit like that before. My mind, at that time, was like, oh, shit, what's this sh*t? I didn't know what to do. So, I start kind of panicking in my mind. I don't know what to do. I'm like, f**king get out, which is what you don't do."

Usman continued: "So I turn my body, I'm trying to get up and walk out, which is what you don't do. And so, he basically just climbed up my back. Boom. We're not even sweating yet. Boom, he's on my back; I'm standing up with the backpack on. He's six-foot somethin', he's got one foot on the ground, one foot wrapped around me, he's fighting.

"And I think I hold him off for another, like, minute and a half. And I'm fighting this choke. All the while, I'm thinking, like, oh, shit. I can't go down because I don't know what the f**k I'm doing down there as well. So, I don't really know the defense down there.

"So, if I go down, that just might make it worse. I don't know the defense. And this dude looks like he knows what he's doing behind me. He's got a few fights. And I'm kind of scared. And I'm fighting it. Now, I'm standing up, and my feet are getting heavy. It's getting shaky.

"And I'm just like, 'Oh, sh*t. I'm about to lose.'"
