UFC 261 gave us three championship fights in which the winners all delivered impressive finishing performances.

In the main event, welterweight champion Kamaru Usman knocked out Jorge Masvidal with a vicious right hand to retain his title. In the co-headliner, Rose Namajunas became a two-time strawweight champ after she dropped Zhang Weili with a beautiful head kick and finished her with some follow-up punches. And in the night’s third title fight, women’s flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko continued her reign of dominance by beating Jessica Andrade with a grappling display that led to a ground-and-pound finish.
