    Exclamation UFC on FX 8: Results/Standings!

    As reported earlier here on ewrestlingnews.com via Ryan Clark/MMAScoops.com, (and elsewhere on the web - but seriously, why go elsewhere when we have it all here ), the UFC on FX 8 event on Saturday night drew an announced attendance of 7,642. UFC on FX 8 took place at Arena Jaragua in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil. While the UFC announced the attendance at the post event press conference, no gate was announced. The event was the UFC's seventh overall in Brazil, but the first time running in Jaragua do Sul. Also announced are the results of the event which can be seen here:

    (Not reported was BQA #4 = 29 total rounds for this event).

    Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC on FX 8, with statistics courtesy of FightMetric.com & credit to Tristen Critchfield of Sherdog.com.


    11: First round finishes for Belfort in the UFC, the most of anyone in the promotion. “The Phenom” landed a spectacular spinning heel kick on Rockhold and pounced for follow-up strikes on the mat to earn a knockout victory 2:32 into round one.


    9.27: Average significant strikes landed by Belfort in those 11 triumphs. The Brazilian landed nine significant strikes against Rockhold.


    2,020: Days since Rockhold’s last professional defeat, a first-round TKO loss to Tony Rubalcava at “Melee on the Mountain” in Friant, Calif. The former Strikeforce titlist had won nine consecutive fights before falling to Belfort.


    16: Brazilians who competed at UFC on FX 8, tying it with UFC 153 for second most all-time in promotion history. Only UFC 147 featured more athletes from the South American country (21).


    9-1: Record for Brazilians in bouts against opposition from other countries on Saturday. Only Hacran Dias, who dropped a unanimous verdict to American Nik Lentz, came up short on his home soil.


    .555: Finishing percentage on submissions in one UFC and eight Strikeforce bouts for Ronaldo Souza, who is 5-for-9 on submission attempts during that time. “Jacare” earned a technical submission against Chris Camozzi in the first round of their middleweight clash on Saturday night.


    2: Significant strikes by which Evan Dunham outlanded Rafael dos Anjos over the course of their three-round lightweight matchup. Dunham outlanded his foe in round three (37 to 26), but dos Anjos had the edge in rounds one (20-12) and two (20-19) in winning a controversial unanimous decision. Dunham also landed the only three takedowns of the fight.


    499: Total strikes thrown by Dunham and dos Anjos combined. Dunham went 90 for 295, while dos Anjos was 86 of 204.


    18: Takedowns landed by Nik Lentz in three 145-pound appearances. The American Top Team representative had landed just three in his previous three outings at lightweight, which resulted in two losses and a no contest. Lentz landed four takedowns in his victory over Hacran Dias.


    8: Difference in significant strikes landed by Dias in round three (24) and rounds one and two combined (16). The Brazilian fighter’s corner urged him to pursue the finish prior to the final frame, but Lentz survived to get the unanimous decision win.


    68: Career takedowns landed by Gleison Tibau, No. 2 all-time in the UFC behind Georges St. Pierre (84). Tibau landed two takedowns in four attempts during his second-round submission victory over John Cholish.


    .931: Takedown defense rate for Tibau, No. 1 in the promotion among those with at least five fights and 20 takedowns defended. He has now faced 59 takedowns in his UFC tenure, stuffing Cholish’s lone attempt in round two.


    98: Total strikes landed by Paulo Thiago in his three-round triumph over Michel Richard dos Prazeres, just two less than he had landed in his previous five Octagon appearances combined.


    .857: Percentage of Iuri Alcantara’s 28 career victories that have resulted in a knockout, technical knockout or submission. “Marajo” earned his 24th finish by stopping Iliarde Santos with punches 2:31 into the opening round of their bantamweight showdown.


    71: Significant strikes by which Fabio Maldonado outlanded Roger Hollett in their light heavyweight scrap. The former professional boxer dominated the final two frames, outlanding his Canadian opponent 95 to 24 in significant strikes en route to earning a unanimous decision.


    18-3: Combined record of Jussier da Silva (8-1) and Chris Cariaso (10-2) in bouts that go the distance. “Formiga” held off a hard-charging Cariaso to earn a unanimous verdict in a preliminary flyweight contest.
    Another very cool statistic is that Vitor Belfort became the very first fighter in UFC history to to win two straight fights by head-kick knockouts on Saturday night. In January, he knocked out Michael Bisping with a second-round head kick in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Luke Rockhold is of course the second unfortunate victim of what is starting to become a trademark for Belfort. Now on to the much anticipated results of our modest contest for this event:

    1. FLWWEFan = 614 pts
    2. Dr. Death = 596 pts
    3. trips = 590 pts
    4. Robstar = 432 pts
    5. cy1911 = 269 pts

    Very respectable numbers and a great showing by all! Great job everyone!! This makes two in a row for FLWWEFan.

    --------------------------

    Overall Standings:

    01. FLWWEFan = 4902 pts
    02. trips = 4633 pts
    03. Dr. Death = 4533 pts
    04. Robstar = 3550 pts
    05. cy1911 = 3489 pts
    06. magglis = 2307 pts
    07. Wwf1998 = 1781 pts
    08. akbar = 1776 pts
    09. rossmiller84 = 1169 pts
    10. Rehmix = 587 pts
    11. Destruction = 203 pts
    12. DRG = 156 pts

    Robstar moves up one position to fourth place as cy1911 drops to fifth, I close in on trips as FLWWEFan starts to pull away. We have a long way to go yet so at this point it's still anybody's game.

    -----------------------

    Our next contest will be UFC 160 live from Las Vegas, Nevada on June 25, 2013. Stay tuned to the mma section of the forum for further details in the upcoming weeks.

    That round house from Vitor was sick. He never took his eyes off Rockhold either.

    Personally I thought you did a very good job. I was surprised to see anyone top your score, and your doing better and better with each contest.

    LOL!

    The funny thing was the time you copy and pasted my picks I didn't win that week. Justice was served I guess.
