Midnight Mania! UFC launches new website tool called “Record Book” for fight stats and research

New, comments

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every quarantined night!

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Earlier today, UFC released a fun new function of its UFC.com website called “Record Book.” Per the website’s own release, “the feature contains a plethora of UFC achievements across categories that range from top-level numbers such as Most Wins and Most Finishes to more granular statistics such as Top Position Time and Total Clinch Strikes Landed.”

True to its word, there’s a lot to dig into on the Record Book site, which goes pretty deep with its various stat categories. Better yet, results and specific categories can be sorted by weight class. For example, who has the most knockout wins in Welterweight history?

Apparently, it’s Matt Brown with 11 stoppages, three ahead of second place’s Thiago Alves and five ahead of the multiple fighters in third place. Statistics can be broken up by entire career, fight, or even a single round. What’s the most active round in UFC history? Per “Record Book,” it’s the third round of Max Holloway vs. Jose Aldo 2, in which the pair threw a combined 204 strikes.

It’s a useful source of info for numbers-minded fans and — more importantly given the current state of things — a fun time-killer!

Insomnia

I posted a few times while I was in Thailand in Midnight Mania about the trip, but the first episode of the training documentary series is up! Please check it out, and my write up HERE has more info!

Kamaru Usman makes a great point: it’s cool if some fighters (like himself!) are willing to fight, but guys like Khabib Nurmagomedov should not get hate if they choose the safer play in staying home.

... with that said, I’m still going to post funny Khabib memes.

... Nope, it just got even weirder.

Max Holloway is training responsibly.

An extra bit of jumping makes this head kick cooler than the norm!

Was Joachim Hansen vs. Luiz Azeredo included in the current 64 greatest fights tournament? It should have been.

Masterful distance and defense:
