MMA: UFC Fight Night-Maia vs Usman
Kamaru Usman defeated Demain Maia at UFC Chile.
Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

It may not have been the prettiest fight, but Kamaru Usman did what he needed to do against Demian Maia on Saturday night.

Usman defeated Maia via unanimous decision in the main event of UFC Chile, grinding his way to a division-best eighth consecutive win. With the victory, Usman not only kept his hot streak alive, but he also tied the second-longest winning streak in UFC welterweight history, matching Jon Fitch’s best run and trailing only Georges St-Pierre’s legendary mark of 12 straight wins. Will be a No. 1 contender fight be next for “The Nigerian Nightmare?”
