UFC ‘Stat of the Day’ — Career Knockdowns

Posted: January 29, 2013 in Cool Stuff We Like

StatisticsThe UFC has made some changes to their website recently and all in all, it seems pretty cool. I like the statistics they now provide on the home page. Assuming you feel the same way, I hope to bring you some cool stats occasionally on The Vig. Today’s ‘Stat of the Day’ is career knockdowns landed. I bet you’d be able to guess some of these, but as always with stats, there are some surprises as well.

1. Anderson Silva (17)
2. Chuck Liddell (14)
3. Melvin Guillard (12)
4. Lyoto Machida (11)
5. Thiago Alves (10)
(tie)Rich Franklin (10)
7. Junior Dos Santos (9)
8. Andrei Arlovski (8)
(tie)Pat Barry (8)
(tie)Yves Edwards (8)

To put these numbers in perspective, Anderson Silva has as many UFC knockdowns recorded as heavyweight sluggers Junior Dos Santos and Andrei Arlovski—combined.
