Blanco lands a head kick, throws a front kick, and Healy goes to his knees. Blanco follows and eventually ends up on top in full guard. Healy controls the wrists and goes high with guard. He then secures an arm as they go north-south. Blanco on top delivers a dozen or so illegal head kicks as the ref tries to peal him off. A timeout is called.

Healy clings to a single leg and lloks for the takedown as Blanco is warned about grabbing the cage. Healy finally gets him to the mat. Blanco is on his knees, and Healy works from top position. Healy delivers some punches to the ears before the round ends. scores it 10-9 for Blanco, though with the point deduction, it's a 9-9 round.
