How is GRAY MAYNARD not in the "Longest fights avg"?? I would think he is a sure in.

Also

Which one surprised you guys the most?? For me it was seeing John Howard being second in the "Take-down accuracy". Probably just because whenever i see him fight he just swings like a nut.

The one that put a smirk on my face was seeing Cheik Kongo in a takedown attempts category.

Significant Strike Defense this one is confusing and wrong imo. I have seen anderson silva dance his way to defend like tons of strikers. I know in the griffin he did like 32. Plus if someone is bored they can count the maia fight.

Nice but, it's not really affective. St. Pierre on average does not hit the most. His old fights and the fact that he is fighting for 25 minutes consistantly is why he's up there.

Thanks for the explanation.
That's what I thought it was but it seemed too far fetched to me. But I guess if you think about it, if he's smothering a guy for most of the round, he's not 'absorbing' many strikes.

Obviously fudged stats.

Two examples:

Machida has absorbed and average of 1.20 strikes per minute? Until he fought Shogun he was the least hit fighter in all of MMA. 0.60 times per round. How does three fights in which he is hit as often as everyone else make him the most hit fighter on the list?

Also, as said before. Anderson Silva should have the most significant striking defense. The gif included says it all.

Kinda surprised that Sherk has an average fight-time of above 15 minutes... Says a bit about his matches :P

Also I would expect Fitch to be in the top 10 of takedown accuracy, but guess I was wrong

It doesn't say GSP hits the most on average. It says hes landed the most strikes period (which is where his amount of time in the octagon helps) but isn't even on the list of most strikes per minute (which is where his octagon time kind of hurts).

Some of you guys are taking this to literal. These are averages of every fight they've had in the UFC. You can't use one fight as an example of why the stat is wrong.

I'm guessing you have no idea what an average is. This is the only way to get fair statistics. If you have another method, by all means, share. You're also reading the stat wrong. Being the in the strikes absorbed per minute is a good thing. The 10 people on that list are the people who get hit the LEAST. Not the most. If you did the math you'd realize that quite easily.
