ROUND 3 - Phan's corner tells him between rounds that he needs a finish and comes out guns blazing. He connects with a few big shots, but Brown backs him up with a big punch of his own. Brown closes the distance, presses him up against the cage and scores another takedown. Phan quickly gets to his feet and angles for a kimura with Brown draped on his back. The two separate. Brown lands a left hook. Brown ducks under a looping right and attempts another single-leg takedown. Phan steps out again, but Brown sneaks in a very nice left hook. Phan pumps the left jab and Brown tries to come over top of it with a right hook. Phan lands a nice left, which compels Brown to once again go for another takedown. The two stall, standing, on the cage. Brown is eventually able to get his back, but isn't doing much at all with the position. Phan spins around and attempts another standing kimura, but there is nothing there ... not even close. That's how the round, and the fight, ends.
