Quite honestly- LOVED IT!

I've always loved sports stats and you can really use them to compare strengths and weaknesses of a fighter and especially in comparison to their opponent. A lot of people use the stats as a guide to understand certain aspects of a sport much more easily. I'm not a big fan of baseball but diehard fans of that sport pore over number after number. I really think this will help the casual fan understand(in this case) the benefit of having the ability to take your opponent and the damage you can do while there. Most casual fans always ask "Why are they rolling on the ground so much?". These stats will help them understand why it is important.

Please please keep using them and bring on more.

I liked it a lot but I hated how Goldie only used those stats when talking.

It's cool but I don't like hearing them every 30 seconds.

I for one would like to see compubox and the UFC get together.

They should do that for Fedor's fights if he is ever in the UFC.

100% success rate on armbar attempts
99.97% chance of winning
.003% chance of changing facial expression

- The Alpha Wolves-
Muhammad Ali - Fedor Emelianenko - Alexander Karelin

If the info is accurate then I'm all for it. It enables you to be more knowledgable about fighters. Gives you a different perspective before, during, and after a fight. GSP passing Fitches guard wouldn't have been meaningful if I hadn't learned that Fitches guard hadn't been passed since he's been in the UFC. Knowledge is good, knowledge is wise.

Yep, I agree 100%

As they say, the stats don't lie

Pretty good feature, they should keep it up. I'd like to know BJ's takedown defence %.
