UFC 258 is in the books and saw Kamaru Usman continue his dominance in the Welterweight division with a stoppage win over Gilbert Burns.

The contender started with a bang as Burns landed a huge right that wobbled the champion, and the significant strikes added up from both grapplers. Usman's jab worked well in the second and then he came into range with huge shots that put Burns on his knees several times.

As soon as the third round opened, Usman nailed Burns with a right jab that sat him down and followed up with punches until the referee waved it off, making it his third successful title defense.

In the Co-Main Event women's flyweight bout, #10 Maycee Barber vs #15 Alexa Grasso engaged in a competitive first round, trading combinations and cage wrestling positions. Grasso had an excellent second round that started with a left hand that wobbled Barber and ended with an arm triangle attempt.

In the third, Barber raised the heat with her striking, takedowns, and clinch work. The grueling fight went to the judges, who awarded Grasso the unanimous decision.

Ranked middleweights #9 Kelvin Gastelum and #15 Ian Heinisch hit the canvas early and began scrambles - Gastelum for position and Heinisch for submissions. Gastelum kept the heat on with his takedowns and wrestling in round two. Halfway through the third, Heinisch finally got back position, but Gastelum reversed it and finished strong, earning the unanimous decision victory.
