      This fight had both guys trading strikes at a moderate pace, with a bit of clinching here & there, and Blair poked Askar in the eye a couple of times. Blair dropped Askar with an overhand right with a minute left in the round, and then instead of finishing him, he just clinched, and then Askar recovered, and took Blair to the ground against the fence. Blair slapped on a guillotine choke, it looked pretty tight, but he was able to scramble out of it, and stand back up before the end of the round. Round one goes to Blair.
      Blair chased Askar with some big punches to start the second round, and then Askar picked him up on his shoulder, and literally ran over to his own corner, and slammed Blair right in front of his corner. That was a solid gameplan by Askar, but Blair quickly worked his way back to his feet. Askar continued to press Blair against the fence, until he was able to dump him to the ground again, with 2 minutes left in the round. Askar worked some ground & pound, and then took Blair's back to look for a rear-naked choke. That was a good round for Askar, so I have this fight all tied up going into the final round.
      Askar took down Blair again early in the final round, and continued to beat up Blair for most of the round. Blair went for a guillotine choke at one point, but he was nowhere near locking it on. They eventually stood up, and traded a few strikes, but neither fighter really came close to finishing the fight. I scored this fight 29-28 for Oscar Askar, and all 3 judges agreed, giving him the unanimous decision victory.
