Middleweight division: 65 fights, 37 finishes. 56.92%
Welterweight division: 81 fights, 35 finishes. 43.21%
Lightweight division: 91 fights, 46 finishes. 50.55%
Featherweight division: 62 fights, 25 finishes. 40.32%
Bantamweight division: 54 fights, 22 finishes. 40.74%

In order:

Losing Guida and Edgar likely helped that tremendously

Hah just you watch WW after losing Fitch then .

Kinda funny how the WW division right in the middle has a lower finish rate than it's expected order. Probably because it's the most wrestler heavy div. The rest are as expected really.
