Pettis kept circling from the outside as Manfio tried to land counter kicks as he stepped in to throw quick punches. Both men came out quickly in the second round as they traded strikes. A low blow caught Pettis, giving him a brief pause in the rallying action. As the action resumed, Manfio kept the center of the cage while Pettis began to focus on his landing kicks. Pettis started punching upstairs as well, but Manfio responded with a few counters of his own. Another low blow landed on Pettis after the front kick, causing a brief pause. The action continued with several exchanges before the round ended. The third round started similarly to the second with both men’s landing kicks, but Manfio landed a clean combination on Pettis, which clearly injured him and led to the biggest moment of the battle. Manfio momentarily caused Pettis to fall onto the canvas, and just as he stood up, Manfio landed on a hard knee and knocked him down again. .
