The Legendary Fight between Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman
The fight in itself between Rocky and Usman was nothing short of surprises, to say the least. It does not happen in every sport that players can dominate their opponent throughout the match and then lose at the last minute. In an extremely climatic fight, Rocky was about to lose in less than a minute by decision had it not been for that knockout kick. The kick that changed the lives of both the competitors forever.
Many big names in the sports world congratulated Rocky for pulling off the greatest upsets in UFC history. Amid celebrations by fans and UFC enthusiasts, an edit of the fight’s highlights made it to Twitter and went viral. A fan made an edit with the Edwards’ coach talking to him and overlayed the Rocky Theme song with it.
