Round 3 – Weidman with a jab. Outside leg kick from Jacare. Weidman with a body kick and a left. Now a right. Jacare back to the brutal body shots. Another leg kick from Jacare. They’re landing huge shots! Jacare is getting the best of it – for now. Weidman with a step-in knee and they’re getting at it again in close. Uppercut and a standing elbow from Weidman. Jacare a little stunned again. Another step-in knee from Weidman. Body kick from Souza. Three minutes to go. Jacare with a leg kick and a hard right. He puts together another combo. More body work. Huge right! Weidman goes down! Weidman was done, but the ref told Jacare to continue. He basically said no, as Weidman tried to feebly grab his leg. So Jacare hit him with four more shots and Mirgliotta finally stopped it. Horrible reffing.
