Put it this way: The main event of UFC Fight Night 178 Saturday in Las Vegas was a lot more glamorous coming in than it was on the way out.
The Usman callout was interesting, though, because Usman, who is the UFC welterweight champion, defeated Covington last year for said title via a fifth-round knockout.
Did Covington's win Saturday justify the rematch?
During the ESPN broadcast, a graphic appeared showing that Covington led Woodley in "clinch strikes landed" by a 60-28 margin.
According to official UFC statistics, Covington landed 78 of 143 significant strikes for a 54 percent accuracy clip, while Woodley mustered up a 40 percent success rate in landing 34 of 83 strikes.
