Round 3: Ning just continuing to apply pressure, forcing Yang to constantly be on the defense and backing up. He’s yet to really execute much in terms of offense in this fight. Little action, as neither fighter wants to make a mistake at this point. They’ve been warned for action by the ref, and the crowd has been very hot to get them going.
