Reed Kuhn, author of “Fightnomics,” offers some intriguing statistics about the two fighters competing in the UFC 229 main event, Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. The first three graphs tell the following story: 1. These are two of the most dominant fighters in the division… but in very different ways. 2. Clearly Conor’s striking is…

1. Yes, Anthony Johnson is the hardest hitter this weekend, and it’s not even close “Rumble” Johnson will get his second shot at the light heavyweight title this weekend, and also another opportunity to move up in the ranks of the UFC’s all-time leading knockout artists. Rumble is not only the hardest hitter competing this…

The UFC’s second Pay-Per-View card in New York will take place in Buffalo this weekend. Though lacking the star power of the first event from Madison Square Garden, UFC 210 will feature arguably the most dangerous striker currently fighting in MMA, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson. The main event rematch between Johnson and currently light heavyweight champion Daniel…

1. Khabib Nurmagomedov isn’t the only dominant grappler on the card Sure, Nurmagomedov has owned opponents on the mat for 96 percent of the time he’s spent there, but there are actually two other fighters who’ve spent even more of their total fight time controlling opponents on the ground. Mirsad Bektic and Luis Henrique have each…

1. UFC 207 Will Have a Lot of Close Matchups The betting odds for UFC 207 are tight across the board, much more so than usual. Here are the implied win probabilities five days prior to fight time… Only former champion TJ Dillashaw is much more than a two-to-one favorite after accounting for the house…

1. The Three Title Fights Will Feature Superlative Strikers Many of the fighters in the three title fights show up very well on paper for offensive striking metrics. Conor McGregor has exceptional accuracy, Joanna Jedrzejczyk has blistering pace and Tyron Woodley hits harder than anyone in his division. Each is presented with different challenges, but…

By @fightnomics It’s an historic event years in the making, with three titles on the line and even the return of one of the biggest Pay-Per-View kings of MMA history. And thanks to such a stacked lineup, we have plenty of data on these fighters to explore. So let’s take a closer look at offensive…

By @fightnomics   We saw several high performing strikers come through with big wins at UFC 194, and now we’ve arrived at the final fight card of the year. It’s a FOX card too, so we know it will be stacked with fan-friendly strikers hoping to draw new mainstream fans to the sport, as well…

By @fightnomics   The main event this weekend in Sao Paulo Brazil is a trilogy fight between two of the most famous veterans of the sport. It’s also a matchup between two older fighters, presumably having to compete off of testosterone supplements despite being longtime users before the TRT ban. Regardless, maximal strength is one…

By @fightnomics When five out of the eight men competing on a UFC main card have NCAA Division 1 experience, it’s fair to say that wrestling remains one of the most critical ingredients to a successful MMA career. So let’s expand the aperture and look deeper at the mat skills to date at UFC 192,…

By @fightnomics The UFC Middleweight division was long ruled by the most dangerous striker in UFC history, Anderson Silva. His rise to power was swift and merciless, and when he cleaned out the division, he even made a few daytrips up to Light Heavyweight to knockout some of the talent in that division too. Silva…

By @fightnomics   After the Lightweights, the next most populous and most frequently competed division is at Welterweight. It’s one of the legacy divisions that’s been around forever, and since the retirement of dominant champion Georges St-Pierre, it’s be given a recent makeover. So let’s see how this large and diverse division stacks up. We’ve…

By @fightnomics   The UFC’s Lightweight division went dark for a few years before returning with tons of momentum, and it’s now the center of mass for the entire UFC. More fights now take place at Lightweight than any other single division, and the roster for that weight class just edges out the Welterweights as…

By @fightnomics With the Barao Era fully behind us in the UFC Bantamweight division, The Dillashaw Era is already looking to be a similarly dominant one. TJ Dillashaw trounced Barao not once, but twice, and we’re left looking around and wondering where any challenge to Team Alpha Male’s top Alpha might lie. However, this analysis…

By @fightnomics It’s the last remaining men’s division that has only known one champion. Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson has reigned over the UFC Flyweight division since inception, with 7 consecutive title defenses so far, and without ever having to take time off or for allow an “interim” title. But that domination will get put to…

By @fightnomics In the fight world, bigger fighters make for bigger fights. It’s always been the case. Heavyweights not only finish far and away the most fights by knockout, we’ll soon learn that they get paid a lot more than their peers, perhaps because of that risk. So let’s turn our attention to the big…

By @fightnomics   This Sunday in Saskatoon, two young gun Featherweights will face off in the main event. Max Holloway and Charles Oliveira are ranked #5 and #7 respectively, and their young ages belie a wealth of UFC experience. The two fighters are just 23 and 25 years old, yet have 25 combined UFC appearances…

By @fightnomics The UFC “Glamour Division” that drove the surging popularity of the sport during the late 2000’s on the backs of fighters like Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz has gone through a massive overhaul in recent years. Not only did physical superfreak Jon Jones emerge and clean house at Light Heavyweight on his way…

By @fightnomics When Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic walks into the Octagon this weekend in Poland, he’ll be the 19th fighter to do so under the UFC promotion at over 40 years of age. He faces Gabriel Gonzaga, who defeated him in a number one contender matchup nearly eight years ago at UFC 70. That these…

By @fightnomics   MMA fights are a volatile proposition. A single punch can change the course of a fight, ending it abruptly, or doing damage that leads to a lopsided performance. It doesn’t matter if the underdog is a 10-to-1 longshot, any UFC fighter is capable of winning on any given fight night. For bettors,…

 By Fightnomics We’ve heard that smaller guys get no respect, but is that really the case? Which weight classes are given highest billing, and who is more likely to appear on a main card relative to other divisions? Dana White recently suggested than when there are multiple titles on the line, the ordering of top billing…

International Fight Week and the UFC Fan Expo marks halftime for the 2014 calendar year of UFC events, and if you feel like things are going by fast, that’s because a lot has happened. Just six months into the year and the UFC has put on a sometimes sleep-depriving 22 events, totaling 243 fights. That’s…
