Arrow ** What Did You Think Of The New Feature At UFC 87**

The stats they did at the start of the show. I think there new i've not seen it before.







GSP's was impressive and Fitch's were decent, wonder what the changes after the fight were.

Really awesome, might help legitimize the sport for those watching it for the first time on PPV. I know the people I was with were shocked at the fact that their were even names for the BJJ "moves" that the fighters were attempting at times, let alone it being possible for there to be calculated stats.

Well GSP became the first to ever pass Fitch's guard!

I liked that new feature. I wasn't sure if this was the first time they've done it or not because I've been gone for so long, but I liked it a lot.

I was fine with the stats but freaking Goldie must have spouted those facts a tonne of times during the 5 round fight.

I'm not sure if they will be doing every PPV but I liked it, and Goldie was going off of the stats a little to much during the main event which got a little annoying.

I'm sort of torn both ways on this one.

On one hand, it's definitely interesting to see the stats of the fighters. I mean, I never knew the percentage of these things. It can make things interesting as well, such as GSP being the first to pass Fitch's guard, that's pretty cool to know.

On the other hand, it sort of feels like a gimmick to me. One of those things they put in the show because they feel they need something more on the main event.

I don't know. Keep it, throw it out, I'm split down the middle on this one.

I like it. I'm biased about it though because I'm a trivia freak, but it's nice to see some statistics.
