Pretty much affirmed everything we already knew. GSP is the complete package, either #1 or #2 in strikes landed, least strikes absorbed, take downs and takedown defense. Hands down the best MMA fighter on the planet.

Also I would expect Fitch to be in the top 10 of takedown accuracy, but guess I was wrong
Im really curious how they count the whole takedown accuracy. Fitch has a habit of putting people against the fence and then working for half the round to take that person down. Now is all that time against the fence just 1 takedown attempt. Or do they break them up?

I'm well aware of what an average is.

And Machida's AVERAGE for the number of strikes he'd absorbed in his entire MMA career, including his UFC career was 0.60 strikes per round. However, this statistic, taken after just three fights (out of his 11 UFC fights) doubles the average? Obviously fudged stats.

I think between Shogun I, Shogun II, and Rampage, Lyoto got hit an average of 3x per minute (going by an estimation of fightmetric scores).

First off, that stat is old as you pointed out.

Secondly, these are UFC records and only include UFC fights(of which the majority wouldn't be accounted for according to your information).

And last but not least, SApM takes a hit when you get beat down twice by Shogun, Machida ate 80 shots in the first fight and 17 in the second one, that is 97 shots and he has only 127 minutes of fight time in the UFC(so 0.76 ignoring all his other fights...)

If you go by the strikes stat on UFC.com(when you look at a fighters profile) he actually has 175 strikes against in his ~127 minutes of fight time for a SApM of 1.38.

GSP for example only has 229 strikes against in his ~218 minutes(SApM of 1.05)

It all depends on how many strikes are considered significant(fightmetric, compustrike and ufc all have different numbers) but the stats are right. They just change that quick when you get your ass kicked twice...

So, I'm gonna refer to my first post and reiterate. You don't know what an average is. If I have and average of 1 and throw a 5 into the average of 1, of course it's going to make the average higher. This is what happened with Machida. I don't know why you're talking about Machida's entire MMA career, either. This is UFC only.

Yea, and if you read the thread better you wouldn't look like such a knob. I can't stand people who use that smiley to be pricks.
