Tyron Woodley held the UFC welterweight championship for nearly three years before Kamaru Usman swooped in and took it away. But take it away he did.
Usman has only ever lost one bout in his professional career and that was well before he joined the ranks of the UFC. He is undefeated in the Octagon, winning all 10 of his bouts, including the win over Woodley.
At UFC 245, he looks to up that number to 11 with the first defense of his title.
