Round 3 – Mousasi pushes the action early in the third and lands a low blow hard enough that Jardine needs a break.  the ref halts the action, allowing him to recover.  The fight continues and Jardine is trying to get a double leg, but can’t.  In a turn of events, Mousasi shoots in for a takedown and gets it.  While getting up, Mousasi attempts a guillotine choke, but Jardine gets out of it.  The two clinch against the fence and Mousasi gets his opponent down again.  Mousasi gets full mount, but Jardine bucks out of it and gets back to the feet.  Jardine’s mouthpiece falls out and the ref stops action to put it back in.  Both fighters looking tired at this point in the fight as Mousasi gets his opponent down and works for a kimura.  No success with the submission leads the two fighters into a scramble on the ground.  Mousasi lands in Jardine’s half guard and works from there before an armbar attempt by Jardine just before the horn signals the end of the round.
