Easy question about lifelink

I am just asking because my opponent doesn't believe me so here it goes...

If a 5/5 creature with lifelink (but no trample) blocks or is blocked by a 2/2 creature and destroys it, does the owner of the 5/5 get 5 lives or 2 lives?

Now, if that 5/5 had trample for sure it would give the owner 5 lives when attacking but how about when blocking? 
5. Creatures do not "pull their punches"; they deal damage equal to their power, regardless of the toughness, loyalty or life total of whatever they're dealing damage to. (And, creatures are quite capable of having damage marked on them greater than their toughness.)
