ROUND 3 - "Rampage" opens with a leg kick before lunging in and missing with a combination. He follows with another leg kick and seems to be finding his rhythm. Jones answers with an inside leg kick of his own before taking "Rampage" down and landing in side control. "Bones" immediately transitions to full mount. The champion begins to rain down elbows but, sensing danger, Jackson hip escapes and manages to scramble to his feet. "Rampage" is bleeding from above his right eye. Jones connects with a left hook that stumbles Jackson backwards. "Rampage" responds with a lunging right hand that misses wildly. Jones launches into a massive flying knee that almost lands flush. Jackson backs away but eats a high kick. Jones' hands are down as he connects with a stiff jab. The horn sounds as "Bones" jumps to the ground and lifts "Rampage" up in the air.

MMA Nation scores the round 10-9 Jones.
