He may not have won the fight, but Jon Fitch's performance in the third round of his match against BJ Penn was still historic. Fitch attempted 181 total strikes, which ties the all-time record for most thrown in a five-minute round in UFC history. Fitch is now tied with Matt Riddle, who achieved the same distinction in the third round of his match against Steve Bruno at Fight Night 17.
Of those 181 total strikes, Fitch landed 149 of them. That is good for second place behind Riddle, who landed 168 of his total strikes against Bruno.
