Clavesilla doesn't let up and eventually scores the takedown.  Hernandez locks up Clavesilla in his guard tightly and the fight stalls.  With nothing happening, the ref stands them up. With a few seconds left, Hernandez is able to catch Clavesilla with a hard chingaso coming the way of a right overhand right that got Clavesilla's attention. 

Round 2
Clavesilla chases Hernandez with a takedown attempt but fails.  They test the waters standing for a bit before Clavesilla gain goes for the takedown.  Again, Hernandez defends strongly and is able to score with punches.  Unrelenting, Clavesilla finally scores the takedown.  In a repeat of the first round, the fight is stalled there and then the fight is stood up.  Hernandez finishes the round unleashing a quick flurry of punches.

Round 3
There was no let up in Clavesilla's strategy.  He goes after the takedown again and eventually gets it. This time he's able to work a little ground and pound but unfortunately for Clavesilla, Hernandez's ability to lock up the guard was too good.  The ref stands the fight up.  In a moment that pleased the chingasos hungry crowd and had them standing, Hernandez turns on about a ten second punches in bunches attack that had Clavesilla stunned.  What was even more stunning though was that Clavesilla was able to survive the attack and the round.

Round 1
This fight stared off with a chinasosfest!  The ladies were throwing punches and kicks with no one retreating.  The only breaks in the chingasosfest would be tough clinches were the chingasos would continue to flow.  The fight went back and forth until the round ended.  Very exciting round!
