Yes, the numbers show what pretty much should have been expected. Nothing surprising at all. But it's nonetheless nice to see the expectations confirmed.
Bantam weight is slightly off, but I guess that has to do with a less deep and heterogeneous distributed talent pool and consiquently higher rate of missmatchups. The rest of the weight classes show a quite linear change in fight endings.
