Gonzaga gets the single and is trying to get behind him, but Rothwell stands. The referee separates them and they resume striking. Gonzaga attempts another takedown, but Rothwell separates early. Rothwell briefly presses Gonzaga into the fence, but separate and the Brazilian lands a series of right hands. Big one-two combination again from Rothwell, but Gonzaga appears gassed.
