  1. If they retain them, I’m not sure how I feel about the UFC making a move that causes more harm to their fighters in the name of more entertaining matches.

    However, this past year was chock-full of epic fights.

  2. I’d like to see the statistics of the larger octagon broken down such that the number of battles is equal to that of the smaller octagon, and compare the stats over time. I’m curious if the finish rate has always increased as the sport and skills have progressed.

  3. Personally, I dislike seeing two octagons of different sizes. Keep it consistent, in my opinion. I think the bigger one is better because the cage is less of a factor.

  4. What if the cage shrinks by 5 feet between rounds? A 10ft cage will be the 5th round of a battle lmao! If by chance, there will be no more choices.

    Is there any data on the gaps in fouls between the two teams? I’m wondering if the 25 has any more eye pokes or nut shots.

  5. And to think Rogan wanted them to compete on basketball courts, where they’d have the most space to deal with, every fight would’ve been an Izzy Yoel.

  6. This data should be monitored for various eras of the ufc, in my opinion.

    If the 25-footer has only been used in some eras, the findings can be skewed.

  7. I’d also like to see the stats for the 174 fights before the scale was updated.

    I’m wondering if the older statistics are skewing the results. Fighting styles in the UFC have evolved over time.

  8. I’m confident you can find a compilation of 174 randomly chosen fights in a 30-foot octagon with the same stats as the one we have for the 25-foot octagon. Also, although the 25-foot octagon was mostly used in the absence of a crowd, this does not imply that the presence of a crowd contributes to further decision battles. This graph appears to be statistics for kids.

  9. I’m curious if the lack of fans and increased contact between fighters and coaches have any impact on these numbers, but they’re certainly intriguing.

  10. Is this, however, statistically significant? They say it’s not analyzed in the first sentence, but it’s fair to believe in the second?
