Leon Edwards stunned Kamaru Usman with a head kick

Now look at him.

Leon Edwards stunned the MMA world with a fifth-round knockout of pound-for-pound and welterweight king Kamaru Usman at UFC 278 on Saturday night, capturing the welterweight strap in the process.

With the win, Edwards ended Usman's 15-fight UFC winning streak and avenged a loss to Usman on December 19, 2015.

Coming into Saturday, Usman was universally considered the best mixed martial artist on the planet, and with less than a minute to go in the fight, his reign atop the MMA perch would continue, considering he dominated Edwards from the second round. And in the final round.

However, magic struck for “Rocky” and Edwards was able to earn his 10th straight win (his fight with Belal Muhammad on March 13, 2021 was decided as a no-contest after an accidental eye poke from Edwards).

In fact, the last time Edwards lost a fight, it was to Usman. And chances are, the two will line it up again in the near future.

The Twitter world went wild after the shocking results:
