Trevor Wittman gives an inside look at Kamaru Usman and Rose Namajunas leading up to UFC 251

It was a successful night at the office for head coach Trevor Wittman at UFC 251.

Wittman, who was in the corner of both his longtime student Rose Namajunas and UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on July 11, launched a video series to give a behind-the-scenes look at both fighters leading up to their fights.

Former UFC strawweight champion Namajunas exacted her revenge against Jessica Andrade, who took the title away from her in a spectacular comeback win at UFC 237. Although Andrade made adjustments the second time around, Namajunas proved to be too fast and too technical for her.

Wittman was also in the corner of Usman, who headed to Colorado for his training camp when he was scheduled to face his Sanford MMA teammate Gilbert Burns. Burns ended up pulling out due to a positive COVID-19 test and was replaced by Jorge Masvidal. Usman defeated Masvidal in a one-sided unanimous decision, making Wittman 2-0 for the night.

Check out the first episode of Wittman’s video series, which features Namajunas’ journey to Abu Dhabi and Usman’s quarantine period in Las Vegas.
