R1: Hard right low kick from Sandro, then a leaping right and a body kick that Straus blocks. Straus' first offering is a blistering roundhouse kick that cracks loudly off Sandro's cup. The Brazilian is writhing in agony on the canvas and in dire need of his allotted 5-minute respite.

They begrudgingly touch gloves and resume with four-and-a-quarter left to go. Straus plunges a long jab and ducks under Sandro's counter-strikes to hit an outside trip. He maintains position briefly but Sandro works his way back to his feet. Sandro hits a counter-throw but Straus moves to his back, looking for the rear-naked choke. Sandro patiently wriggles free and they re-engage standing halfway through the round.

Inside low kick by Sandro; jabs from Straus. Straus connects with a one-two and dives for a double, then changes to a single when Sandro bangs hammerfists off his head. Sandro is back up and Straus gets the rear waist cinch, looking for a belly-to-back suplex; Sandro defends with a low base. Sandro's warned for grabbing the fence and Straus powers him to a knee briefly. They resume the back-waist cinch until the bell. 10-9 Straus, effective striking and grappling.

R2: Straus flings a jab and fakes a level drop. Overhand right from Sandro. Body kick from Straus, who shoots behind it. Sandro defends with a whizzer against the fence and eats some short knees from Straus. Sandro spins out with the single collar tie and they resume in the center. Crisp uppercut from Sandro as Straus is changing levels. Another uppercut; it doesn't land but Sandro's targeting Straus' head when it drops. Straus with a high kick that barely misses.

They trade uppercuts but Sandro tacks on two punches on the way out. Straus fakes a single; Sandro pulls back on a flying knee. This time he releases it but it's caught by Straus, but Sandro's too feisty to take down again. Sandro with a big overhand on one exchange and another huge uppercut and a knee on the next. 10-10 round for equal offense.

R3: They both coming out swinging to start the last stanza. Straus crisp with punches while Sandro loads up his lead hook and overhand right. They connect and it's Sandro pushing Straus on the fence. They break and Sandro leads with a left-right and Straus is quick with his straight counter. Straus uncorks a head kick and shoots. Sandro is too resilient, then snatches a single on Straus and slips around to the rear waist cinch.

Sandro puts a hook in and threatens to take the back, then snakes his arms around Straus' neck with a standing arm-triangle attempt, ala his Sengoku fight with Matt Jaggers. Straus "answers the phone" to defend for nearly a minute. He slips loose and we're back into open space with a minute left. Straus ducks a Sandro combination, latches onto his waist and tosses the Brazilian for a monster takedown. Straus takes his back in a flash and slaps on a rear-naked choke, but doesn't have two hooks in and can't finish before the bell. Another firecracker of a fight. 10-10; both fighters secured near fight-ending chokes with no clear striking advantage. I have it 30-29 Straus as we await the decision.

One judge has it 29-28, the others have it 30-27 for Daniel Straus, who defeats Marlon Sandro by unanimous decision.
