Not fight-finishing shots by any means, but definitely scoring on the judges cards and getting Hunt’s attention. Lesnar gives up on the ground and pound and switches to an arm-triangle, ala his come-from-behind finish over Shane Carwin. Lesnar lets the choke go and goes back to hammering away at Hunt with ground and pound. Lesnar definitely isn’t having any gas issues in this round. 90 seconds remains in a third and final round that has been absolutely all in favor of Lesnar. The fight is going to end the same way it went for pretty much the entire five minutes, with Lesnar on top of Hunt lumping him up. The buzzer sounds to end the round and the fight. MMANews.com scores the round 10-8 for Brock Lesnar.
