That one dimensional style took him to two title shots that weren't good fights but he did fight for the title so he can be proud of that.
Very good take down defense from Usman, I also like how smoothly he switches stances to throw from different angles. He did drop Maia but his stance is more a volume one then a power one. I also will be curious to see how he does against someone who throws a lot of leg kicks. I think the obvious fight for him would be Colby Covington which I think will be a fun build up and a good fight in itself.

Not even Silva deared to put anything behind his strikes when facing Maìa, fearing a well timed TD attempt would have put him on the ground.
