Both the featherweights took their time to open up by checking their range with low kicks. David stays a bit busier as he puts on the initial pressure with kicks and punches. Within the final seconds Julio springs back action and closes the round with a left strike. Julio continues the pace in the second and third as he comes out with an increased striking rate and attempts to look for a take down. The switching leg kick from David gets caught by Julio who then takes him to the ground. Julio wraps his hand tight around Davids neck and continues to put pressure until he is forced to tap out.
