Read Dallas Winston's play-by-play for the final round below:
Teixeira lowers his stance and shortens his punches, popping Davis with a quick flurry. Davis anticipates the next and attacks his hips but Teixeira is able to fend it off. Davis hits a duck-under double leg one-minute deep and quickly passes to mount. Teixeira spins out and Davis goes to the back ride. Teixeira gets up and Davis drags him back down with the body lock, and the sequence repeats.
Davis gets wrist control with his left and fires a few right hands to the head. Teixeira stands and breaks the body lock, then shuts down Davis' attempt to transition into a single. They separate with 80 seconds left and Teixeira's too exhausted to load up the money punch, and succumbs to another Davis takedown. 10-9 Davis; I have it 30-27 his way.
