Georges St. Pierre vs. Jon Fitch, UFC 87

UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre (Pictures) had Jon Fitch (Pictures) on his back five seconds into their title fight Saturday at UFC 87 in Minneapolis.

The Montreal native ducked a punch and completed a double-leg takedown that let him work from the top early. Fitch got up, but St. Pierre put the former Purdue University wrestler right back down with a single-leg.

Again Fitch got to his feet. Moments later he was down again -- this time from a straight right hand that countered a leg kick. St. Pierre pounced with a two-minute onslaught of punches and elbows that foreshadowed the punishment to follow over the next four rounds.
