Fitch Clearly Won Round 2 Against Penn



As I was watching live, I thought Fitch won round 2 by a slim margin.  After watching a 2nd time and looking over the stats, it's clear that Fitch won it.  Here are the details:

ROUND 2 BREAKDOWN:

Fitch had 59 strikes, 14 being significant.
Penn had 18 strikes, 5 being significant.
They each had 1 takedown.
BJ’s was passed with a reversal.

As for time of control, here’s a summary:

at 4:55, Fitch takes BJ down
at 4:12, BJ gets up, but is still being controlled against the cage
at 2:34, BJ spins and puts Fitch against the cage
at 2:11, Fitch spins BJ against the cage
at 2:07, the fight is back to neutral
at 1:54, Penn takes Fitch down
at 1:16, Fitch spins into top position
at 0:03, BJ is back up, into a neutral position

added up, Fitch controlled for about 3:38, BJ did for about 1:01.

BJ gave Fitch a bloody nose (something that could happen from breathing in freezing cold air).
BJ had Fitch’s back, on the ground, for 10 of those 61 seconds.

So…..to sum up the differences:

For Fitch:
about 3X more significant strikes,
more than 3X more strikes
more than 3X more time in control of the round

For BJ:
gave bloody nose
had back for 10 seconds

How does any unbiased individual give that round to BJ?  If you disagree, please explain with something of value in the comments.
