Jorge Masvidal has admitted he was overconfident ahead of his fight against Usman Kamaru.
According to him, it hurts to be knocked out for the first time in his career and in front of family, friends in Florida.

Usman floored Masvidal (35-14, 12-8 UFC) with a picture-perfect straight right hand and sealed the deal with approximately five hammerfists on the canvas in the second round.
