Another decision:

Round 1
Couture slips a combination and secures a body lock. Couture now scales him like a monkey and has his back while Watson stands against the cage. Couture is digging for a rear-naked choke, but he's too far on the side to find the squeeze. Watson now falls to his back, and Couture has both hooks in. Couture now has the body triangle, and Watson is continually peppering him with shots over his shoulder. Watson turns into him, and Couture snatches up an arm-triangle. It looks deep, but Watson defends well and refuses to submit. Couture gives it up and once again takes Watson's back. Ninety seconds to go. Couture attacking, Watson defending. Watson scrambles and escapes, standing above Couture, now, and reigning down punches. Couture is keeping him honest with sweep attempts and tries for an armbar as time expires, though he eats an elbow as well. 10-9 Couture.

Round 2
Couture has a gash on his forehead from the elbow. Couture tries a front kick to gauge distance. The men trade low kicks, and Couture lands a knee. Couture slips a combo and executes the same takedown he used in round one. Couture now has Watson's back once more. Cat and mouse again from back control, as Watson defends the rear-naked choke well. Couture has the body triangle again, but Watson will not relent. Couture fishing for another arm-triangle, and he's mounted again. Watson is out, though, and he's now on top, dropping leather. Couture's guard is solid, however, and he tries for a straight armbar. Watson looks like he wants to go for a “Shogun”-style jump-stomp, but instead he drops some more punches. 10-9 Watson.

Round 3
Couture lunges forward this time, and it's Watson who scores a takedown. Couture stands, but Watson drives him down one more time. Couture executes a gorgeous sweep and lands in mount. Watson gives up his back, and Couture now has that body triangle again. Couture now in mount, and he's looking to maul with short punches while he grapevines Watson's legs. Couture now postures up and he's throwing down some ground and pound reminiscent of his father's style. Couture slides up into a higher mount, perhaps thinking armbar. Watson exposes his back once more, however, and Couture take the gift, landing lateral elbows to Watson's dome. Couture, now mounted, tries for a topside triangle, but Watson escapes. Couture recovers and lands on top as the exciting bout comes to a close. 10-9 Couture (29-28 Couture).

Official scores: Judge Adalaide Byrd scores the fight a 28-28 draw, while judges Glen Trowbridge and Patricia Jarman both see it 29-28 for your winner by majority decision, Ryan Couture.
