Kamaru Usman wins TUF 21 Finale for The Blackzilians after outgrappling Hassan for much of the fight before a takedown early in the second round led to an arm triangle attempt.

Michelle Waterson defeats Angela Magana by submission (rear-naked choke) at 2.38mins of Rd3
Maximo Blanco defeats Mike De La Torre by TKO at 0.16mins of Rd1
Both men came out swinging in the main card opener and it worked out better for Blanco who staggered De La Torre badly with a straight right. The ref is in immediately calls an end to the fight even though De La Torre has grabbed a hold of Blanco’s leg and wants to continue.
