Inside The Numbers: As was his strategy, St. Pierre attempted to make this long-awaited rematch into a wrestling match, fought at close quarters (or on the mat) from the opening bell. Of his 22 arm strikes landed in the round, 12 were from the clinch. They also exchanged leg strikes, with St. Pierre holding a 11-6 edge. Only Penn’s unbelievable balance prevented St. Pierre from taking the fight to the mat where he wanted it. St. Pierre got the fight to the mat in the second round and raked Penn with 49 ground strikes, securing two dominant positions in the process. More of same in the third, as 39 of St. Pierre’s 52 strikes landed were from the ground. St. Pierre really took it to the now worn down Penn in the fourth, landing 91 ground strikes and securing three dominant positions. Penn landed just four total strikes all round and only 30 over the last three rounds, too busy fending off the fighting machine St. Pierre from his back. Penn’s corner wisely stopped the fight after the fourth.
