We’ve uploaded a huge amount of content in the last few days, you should check out the homepage for career reports for Rampage Jackson and Forrest Griffin, along with a bunch of their fights.
But the biggest addition is the biggest fight in MMA history: the match between Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar to conclude the first season of The Ultimate Fighter.
The stats are interesting for the sheer volumes we’re dealing with. The total effectiveness scores are 459 and 405. Remember that an average 15-minute fight would have an average score of 180. The combined total of 864 points is, by a large margin, the highest-scoring fight we’ve ever come across. The next highest total was for the Diego Sanchez-Karo Parisyan fight, with a total of 756.

I have to let my body start resting and healing up from all the sparring and all the grueling training that we’ve done, and you want to fight as healthy as possible.
