UFC 118 Recap: FightMetric Report for Frankie Edgar vs. B.J. Penn 2

Photo by Esther Lin for MMA Fighting

There was no controversy this time. Frankie Edgar beat B.J. Penn with better execution of the gameplan he used in the first fight. Edgar straight befuddled Penn all night with in-and-out movement, takedowns, feints, takedown feints, speed, and volume. Penn looked disinterested from the time he entered the cage, and that disinterest turned into complete impotence by the final round.

FightMetric released their report late last night, and while there aren't many surprises therein (the system did award Penn the first round), the numbers tell the tale. Here's the stat summary:

Name Total
Strikes
Significant
Strikes
Takedowns Effectiveness
Scores
Edgar 142 94 3 385
Penn 56 36 2 203

Frankie Edgar's performance speaks for itself. Masterful.
