Round 1 - RDA landed the first solid strike of the fight, a head kick. Dos Anjos put together a couple of nice combinations and connected with a knee up the middle. Dunham came back with his own combo though. RDA dug to the body and landed a solid left hook. Dos Anjos was getting the better of the striking, but Dunham got him down with about 90 seconds left in the round. Dunham didn't land a ton, but he did keep Dos Anjos down until the ref stood them up with 15 seconds to go. 10-9 Dos Anjos.

Round 2 - Dubham ducked a punch and got a takedown, but Dos Anjos reversed it quickly. They clinched up, then separated. Dunham landed a couple of shots but ate a body shot. Dos Anjos looked for his own takedown but couldn't get it. Both men landed some solid strikes, but there was a little more steam on RDA's punches. Nice knee from RDA, but Dunham opened a cut on RDA's face. Might have been an accidental headbutt. The boxing battle has been pretty good. Dunham is avoiding a lot more strikes that it appears at first glance. Dunham ate a combo but scored with a knee. Dunham got a takedown with about 3 seconds left in the round. Tough to score, but I'd lean Dunham 10-9.

Round 3 - Dunham started bringing a little more pressure early but couldn't connect with anything appreciable. RDA landed a couple of shots and staved off a takedown attempt. Dos Anjos switched it up and started throwing more kicks, and they were hard. Dos Anjos landed flying knee and they both threw down in the pocket. Dunham was the one coming forward down the stretch, though Dos Anjos didn't appear to be tired. He stuffed two more Dunham takedown attempts. Dunham went to the body and RDA landed a nice combo. They brawled with 20 seconds to go, and Dunham got the best of it. 10-9 Dunham, and I have it 29-28 for him. Rafael dos Anjos def. Evan Dunham via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
