Round 3 was all Belfort. He knocked down Souza with a brutal hook early on. Souza stood up and got wobbled multiple times before getting dropped a second time towards the end of the round. He would get back up again and manage to survive until the bell.

Belfort also had a good connection with his left, but Souza began having success clinching and dirty boxing. It was the most competitive round of the fight, as both guys evenly connected cleanly on each other.

But even then, Belfort landed the better shots, had the higher output in terms of significant shots landed, and at several points stunned Souza.

In the final round, both Souza and Belfort were completely spent. However, that didn’t stop them from going toe to toe in a grueling fight. Both connected and had each other on wobbly legs in multiple times. Yet, once again, Belforst shot’s were far more damaging than Souza’s.
