Round 3
The strikers are sniping at the start of the final round. Njokuani looks loose as he counters Barbozaís punches lands inside thigh kicks. Nice flurry from Barboza, but it doesnít stun Njokuani as it did in the opening frame. Njokuani leaps in with a knee to the gut of Barboza. Jabs and kicks flowing from Barboza, who looks to be in control with 90 seconds to go. Barboza isnít giving up though, pushing forward and landing turning side-kicks. He catches a knee from Njokuani and finishes a takedown against the fence with 20 seconds to go. Njokuani gets to his feet and eats a massive spinning back-kick just before the horn. He stays vertical, but on wobbly legs. Barboza raises his hands as though he stole the fight with the kick, but itís going to be a close call.

TJ De Santis scores the round 10-10 (29-29 Draw)
Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Barboza (29-28 Barboza)
Mike Whitman scores the round 10-10 (29-29 Draw)

Official scores: All three judges have it 29-28 in favor of the winner by unanimous decision, Edson Barboza.
