  1. An article of facts about UFC on FOX 9 this Saturday night in Sacramento, California. There are a total of 60 facts in the full article, but here are the ones that are best/most interesting, in my opinion of course. - Demetrious Johnson’s 12 takedowns landed against Moraga were the most ever in a UFC fight without a single failed attempt. - Johnson is one of two fighters in UFC history to record 10 or more takedowns in two separate bouts. The other is welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre. - Joseph Benavidez is one of four fighters in UFC history to earn two knockout victories stemming from body strikes (Rich Franklin, Melvin Guillard and Lineker). He is the only fighter to accomplish the feat in back-to-back fights. - Urijah Faber has earned 16 career submission victories, with 14 of them coming by rear-naked or guillotine choke. His 10 submission victories in UFC/WEC competition are tied with Nate Diaz for most in the modern era. Only Royce Gracie (11) has more in UFC/WEC history. - Chad Mendes is the only fighter in UFC featherweight history to record four straight knockout victories. He is just one of six fighters in UFC history to accomplish the feat. - Nik Lentz will fight on a UFC main card for the first time in his 13th appearance with the promotion. - Court McGee is one of two fighters in UFC history to land 100-plus significant strikes in a single fight in two separate weight classes.

  9. An article with 30 post-event facts coming out of UFC 160: 'Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2' last night (May 25) in Las Vegas. Some interesting stuff in the full article but I thought these five were especially good. 1. Cain Velasquez's 81-second victory over Silva was the fastest UFC championship fight since Junior dos Santos knocked out Velasquez to take the heavyweight title at UFC on FOX 1 in Nov. 2011. Overall, the result was the fourth fastest (technical) knockout finish ever in a UFC title fight. 9. Cain Velasquez earned his eighth (technical) knockout victory in the UFC, which is the most of any heavyweight in the organization's history. Dos Santos and Andre Arlovski are tied for second in the category with seven career (technical) knockout wins. 12. Khabib Nurmagomedov's 21 completed takedowns against Abel Trujillo are the most ever in a UFC bout. Sean Sherk, who completed 16 takedowns against Hermes Franca in a five-round fight at UFC 73 in July 2007, held the previous record. 17. Junior dos Santos became the first person to win a UFC heavyweight fight by head kick knockout since Gabriel Gonzaga defeated Mirko Filipovic at UFC 70 in April 2007. 26. Colton Smith became just the sixth winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) reality show to lose their first fight after winning the finale. Joe Stevenson, Amir Sadollah, James Wilks, Jonathan Brookins and Diego Brandao are the others. http://www.mmamania.com/2013/5/26/4368728/ufc-160-results-30-post-event-facts-stats-about-cain-velasquez-vs-antonio-bigfoot-silva-2-mma
  10. An article of facts about Saturday's UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs. Rockhold event in Santa Catarina, Brazil.

Luke Rockhold was the only fighter in Strikeforce history to defend the middleweight championship twice. He is tied with Cung Le for the most finishes in Strikeforce history (seven) and tied with Tim Kennedy for most submission victories in Strikeforce history (five). 8. Nik Lentz has fought all 11 of his UFC bouts on the preliminary portion of the card. 15. Vitor Belfort holds the UFC record for most first-round finishes (10). 20. Vitor Belfort's 119-day turnaround from his last fight is his shortest since a 112-day gap between Pride bouts in 2006. http://www.mmamania.com/2013/5/15/4331130/ufc-on-fx-8-preview-20-facts-about-vitor-belfort-vs-luke-rockhold-brazil-may-18-mma
  11. An article loaded with great facts about Saturday's UFC on FOX 7: 'Henderson vs. Melendez' event in San Jose, California. There are 35 facts in the full article, but here are the ones that are best/most interesting, in my opinion of course. Quote: 2. Gilbert Melendez is the fifth fighter in modern UFC history to challenge for a title in his or her debut with the organization. The previous challengers (Gil Castillo at UFC 33, Hayoto Sakurai at UFC 36, Frank Trigg at UFC 45 and Liz Carmouche at UFC 157) are winless (0-4). 9. Darren Elkins can take sole possession of the record for most Featherweight wins of any fighter in UFC history at six. He can also set the record for longest 145-pound win-streak in UFC history at six. The 28-year-old is undefeated (5-0) in the UFC featherweight division and 6-1 overall under the UFC banner. 13. Francis Carmont can tie Chris Weidman and Constantinos Philippou for the second longest active Middleweightwin-streak in the UFC behind champion Anderson Silva (11 wins). 18. Frank Mir and Nate Diaz are tied with Kenny Florian for the most submission victories in modern UFC history at eight. A submission win for either would give them sole possession of the record.
