Round 3 - Leg kick by Brimage and a body punch. Another leg kick by Brimage, and two more. They show a meaningless head strikes landed stat with no context, this broadcast is annoying me. Brimage circling and lading strikes while Hettes chases. Brimage with two hard rights. Hard combo by Brimage. Brimage is tagging him more now. Hettes tries for a takedown and can't get it. Big left by Brimage. Brimae is clearly winning the round, but you wouldn't know that from listening to the announce crew. Brimage just beat him in the last round. 10-9 Brimage. Anything other than a Brimage scorecard is absurd, that being said...let's see what happens with the judges.
