  1. Although the impact is minor, it’s important to note that as the guys get bigger, the percentage of body shots decreases. It’s a steady downward trend.

  2. It all makes sense. Since it allows you to lower your hands, body shots are more difficult to execute without being countered. Leg kicks aren’t as big as body shots, which I find surprising.

  3. How far back do you go while compiling your statistics? Is it just the UFC? I just inquire because I’m curious if they’re skewed by an earlier age of MMA. Flyweight, on the other hand, almost exactly matches with them, so maybe not.

  4. The similarity of the percentages around the weight groups astounds me. You can look at why it is and find even more incredible figures like this.

  5. I’m curious if there’s a difference between rounds.

    Edit: and maybe once a year in the future. In that respect, I’m sure the game has progressed.

  6. That’s fascinating. I’d also like to see a breakdown by mma camps to see if everyone fights the same way or if some gyms emphasize leg kicks more than others.

  7. This data set has piqued my interest. Specifically, by modifying it slightly. I understand that one particular figure’s impact would be minor compared to the rest of the results, but if Jon Jones is excluded from the LHW data, would LHWs still have the highest leg kick percentage?
