Arguably the UFC's most interesting fighter in Jorge Masvidal, and a respected champion in Kamaru Usman who was aiming to both defend a belt and prolong a win streak.
And the main thing for Usman is winning this fight.
Usman landed 94 significant strikes and 263 overall strikes compared to Masvidal's respective totals of 66 and 88.
The champion scored all five of the fight's takedowns as well, and finished with 10 minutes, 6 seconds of clinch control time.
The champion heard Masvidal given significant credit for taking the fight with little planning but pointed out that it wasn't an easy transition for him either.
