    I think the numbers do show that Uriah's striking, especially is GnP changed after the Mike Brown Loss. He no longer stopped guys with his strikes. He became a "position first" fighter looking for the sub. Nothing wrong with that, but prior to Mike Brown he had more ways he could beat his opponents and more for them to worry about. I'm a huge Uriah Faber fan and I hope he can get back to stopping guys with his striking.

    How's that for facts? UGH!!!! FUCK YOU SCIENCE!

    But how many of those subs were off of strikes? I can think of at least two (McDonald and Bowles) that were latched onto directly after a vicious knock down punch.

    Wasn't it originally a Diaz-ism? From the rant post Condit fight? "Little baby leg-kicks" and "So we're throwing spinning shit now?

    Happy to be corrected though.

    So now you are saying he's winning by submissions instead of ko's because he stopped throwing spinning strikes ?

    When Urijah was champion, I wasn't a big fan of his. Afterwards, with every fight, I came to appreciate him more and more. He's been in the sport for 10 years and there is no signs of slowing down at all. His striking has really improved where he's outstriking better strikers than himself, and it's just incredible how good of a fighter he is all around. He right now has the best guillotines in the game; once he grabs that neck, it's over.

    I really don't know what they are going to do with him. He's not the next shot. He just beat McDonald. He's beat Wineland twice. Pickett and Jorgenson are at 125 now. He also recently beat Jorgenson convincingly. Dillashaw is a training partner. Easton is booked against Dillashaw. Mizugaki barely beat Nam Phan. The only fighter that makes sense for Faber at 135 is Assuncao. I am note sure the UFC is willing to give him that fight consider Assuncao is the only other 135 close to a shot at all.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Faber go back to 145 for his next match.

    7 Scott Jorgensen
    8 TJ Dillashaw
    9 Mike Easton
    10 Takeya Mizugaki
