Chito won the 3rd round, And arguably won the first round, MMA is a damage base  scoring criteria, even though Dom landed more shots in each round, Chito got knockdown in the first and 3rd round, The first round, Chito didn't do much beside the knockdown, So you can give it to Cruz, But the third, Chito was doing stuff, 

It was most likely, 29-28 Cruz going into the forth, But it could of been 29-28 Chito,
