He should be overtaking Liddell in the next fight or two if I recall the numbers correctly.
Didn't Liddell knockdown Jeremy Horn something like 35 times?
I am not sure what the exact number of times is, but I totally forgot about his fight with Horn.
ya wtf, those knockdown stats definitely don't sound right.
What don't sound right about them?
I dunno, people get knocked down all the time it seems like. How has Liddell or Arlovski or any other striker who's ever been in the ufc, not knocked someone down 3 times in a fight more than once??
i wonder who holds the record for most failed takedown atempts in a fight
and lets be honest, Silva let Forrest hit him.
find these stats so overplayed. Like durring the fight they said something aboutforrest holding the record for most leg kicks landed Ina 3 round fight. It's just such useless bullshit.
Win vs loss = only stat that matters
and even that is subjective, depending on how many cans you fight as opposed to fighting tough competition every time example Randy Couture great fighter, not a a great record, but he's fought the top of what ever weight class he's in over and over again.
Compared to the random bs stats most sports always talk about, I think most of these stats are actually semi interesting and relevant.
Typically I agree but some of them really point out how much better Silva is than virtually anyone else. For example his accuracy compared to the average fighter is awfully impressive but the knock down thing doesnt really matter much.
It's misleading. Silvas 50%+ stat is total strikes, while the 29% average refers toheadstrikes. Although I agree that strikeing efficency can be a valid stat, it's not nearly as portant as it is in boxing. You have strikers like hendo who can miss with all but one punch and have that last one be a knockout/knockdown, and people like Nick Diaz who can land shots all night but your not going to knock anybody out.
Robbie Lawler begs to differ.
Interesting fact, Forrest ran from the cage at .38mph faster than he did against Jardine.
Another fun fact, Joe Rogan used the term methodical 3 times more than he had ever used "war of attrition" in any previous events.
makes sense to me
he knocked down Horn a ton of times
just like his fight with Vernon Whyte
I'm pretty surprised, and a little disappointed, at the lack of forrest gump jokes/gifs/etc.
