UFC 166 by the numbers, Cain v. Junior III / Cormier v. Nelson
http://espn.go.com/blog/mma/post/_/i...by-the-numbers

...

8: Velasquez has eight UFC victories by KO/TKO, most by any heavyweight in company history. The 8 KO/TKO wins are tied for fifth all-time. Tied for second on the heavyweight list is dos Santos with seven.

57: Velasquez lands 57 percent of his significant strikes, seventh highest all-time and tops among active heavyweights. In his victory over dos Santos, Velasquez landed 50 percent of his significant strikes (111 of 224). “Cigano” landed 49 percent of his significant strikes.

11: In their last fight, Velasquez secured 11 takedowns on dos Santos, a career high for the former All-American from Arizona State. Before that fight, opponents had taken down dos Santos twice in 17 attempts (88 percent defense). Velasquez lands an average of 6.5 takedowns per 15 minutes.

5: Both fighters land over 5 significant strikes per minute in UFC fights. Velasquez is first with 6.50 significant strikes per minute while dos Santos is 7th at 5.46 significant strikes per minute. They are 1st and 3rd respectively in the UFC heavyweight division all-time (Stipe Miocic 5.48).

3: There have been three title fights in UFC history to take place in Houston. Champions Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo retained their titles at UFC 136. The biggest upset in UFC history also occurred in Houston as Matt Serra defeated Georges St-Pierre for the welterweight title at UFC 69.

4: Of the 15 men who have held a version of the UFC heavyweight title, four have defended the title two consecutive times. Randy Couture defeated Pedro Rizzo twice in 2001. Andrei Arlovski defended an interim title against Justin Eilers and then the undisputed title against Paul Buentello in 2005. Tim Sylvia defeated Arlovski for the title, and then defended against him and Jeff Monson in 2006. Brock Lesnar defended his undisputed title against interim champions Frank Mir in 2009 and Shane Carwin in 2010.

10: Velasquez vs. dos Santos III will be the 10th trilogy in UFC history. Of the previous 9 to be completed, only one has taken place within the UFC heavyweight division (Sylvia vs Arlovski). As Velasquez did against dos Santos, Sylvia lost the first fight and his interim title at UFC 51, but then won it back at UFC 59 in the second matchup. In the final installment less than three months later, Sylvia was victorious again at UFC 61.

26: Cormier has landed an average of 26 more significant strikes in each of his nine UFC/Strikeforce fights over his career. In his last fight, he outlanded Frank Mir 59-24 en route to a unanimous decision victory. Cormier has never been outstruck in any of those nine fights. Nelson was outstruck in his last fight by Stipe Miocic 106-23.

4: Knockout of the Night awards for Nelson, tied for second most all-time and 1st among heavyweights. All four of those victories were in the first round as well as nine of his 12 career KO/TKO wins. Cormier has five victories by KO/TKO, three of which occurred in the first round.[/quote]

MY PICKS:

cain vs. junior: JDS has a lot of things in his favor this time around. his marital issues are settled, he's motivated like holy fire to get the belt back, and his team has had a long time to work on his weaknesses and possibly even develop some traps for when cain shoots on him. specifically, knowing that junior can be taken down repeatedly yet can't be finished has to be an enormous plus. it will allow him to take extra risks, like throwing a choice knee or uppercut when cain is changing levels, or maybe even doing something interesting when he's hopping against the fence with cain on the ground, clinging to the ankle. cain is still cain, but slight edge to JDS this time, probably by TKO. of course i'll be thrilled if i'm wrong.

cormier vs. nelson: roy has to hit the big punch or he's sunk. otherwise i expect cormier to grind him down and tire him out. of course nelson lost a tonne of weight for this fight, so that's an x-factor. cormier by decision, but probably not without getting in to danger along the way.

gilbert vs. diego sanchez: melendez is just too good. i think he, josh thompson, bendo and pettis are the big four of their division, with everyone else at a lower tier right now. gil by TKO.


no strong opinions on the other fights, but lombard vs. marquardt should be interesting, if only to see who shows up.

EDIT: so cormier weighed in around 224 and nelson, 249 i think. roy is doing the yoyo diet, and that's a bad sign. he was close to LHW weight just a few weeks ago. oO

MY PICKS(I am really high so pardon me)

JDS VS CAIN: Cain shows up looking better than ever. I expect JDS to come out looking great but getting tired as Cain turns up the pace. I see JDS trying to get Cain to exchange with him and he will get taken down in one of those exchanges. I think Cain will end it with a submission that not too many see coming.

Cormier vs Nelson: I think Nelson wins as a monstrous upset. I can guarantee you that Cormier will come out trying to prove that he can box and will be doing fine until Nelson catches him with a big punch that hurts him and ultimately gets him finished.

MELENDEZ VS SANCHEZ: Melendez destroys Sanchez and proves that he needs another tittle shot.

I wouldn't be surprised to see JDS or Cain win but I'd sooner bet money on a repeat of the 2nd fight where Cain just wears JDS down and wins a decision.

Same thing goes for Nelson-Cormier. If Roy doesn't get the 1st round KO, he's done. Cormier just needs to be smart and he wins an easy decision.

keep an eye out on UFC's youtube channel weeks prior to UFC cards

i believe the UFC will put up 2-3 fights of each fighter in the main event for free leading up the event.

so you'll prly get some free hendricks fights and gsp fights next month on their channel
