Fuji is beginning to show to marks of battle on her face as several cuts have opened up on her face. The round ends with a frustrated Fuji charging forward to no avail.
The third round is another close 5 minutes as both fighters exchange kicks and punches. Fuji is able to get Aguilar to the mat and works some ground and pound. Aguilar is throwing punches from the bottom but Fuji remains on top throwing punches to the body. Aguilar trys to catch Fuji in an armbar but Fuji defends well.
