    not bad for a "gay" sport where a bunch of guys are in "homoerotic positions".

    Good point

    It's pretty impressive that a big guy like Junior managed to get that high on the list considering how many lighter weight class guys are on there. And I would have thought Cain would behigher than JDS for sure.

    The UFC, via FightMetric, tracks significant strikes as all strikes attempted from a standing distance position, plus all power strikes (as opposed to jabs) in the clinch, or on the ground. It is the common denominator for offensive output by a fighter, and an excellent metric to use as a proxy for overall fighting pace.

    Since 2007, UFC fighters average 6.8 significant strikes per minute (SSpM) of fight time. Significant strikes do damage, score knockdowns, set up submissions, or cause referees to jump in for the save. Significant strikes generally define the action in a fight, and as the analysis shows, fighter output by this metric has changed drastically since the early years of the UFC.


    Through the 1990’s, UFC fighters attempted an average of only 2.8 significant strikes per minute. Averages for UFC fighters then more than doubled to 6.9 SSpM after the sport matured under Fertitta’s Zuffa umbrella. Modern UFC fighters also score more knockdowns and throw a slightly higher percentage of power strikes than the old guard, further suggesting greater endurance.
