CompuStrike Stats For Lyoto Machida vs Shogun Rua

Lyoto Machida UFC 104

CompuStrike has released their stats and analysis of the UFC 104 main event between Lyoto Machida and Shogun Rua. One item of interest that no one has said much about is the knee strikes that Shogun outlanded 2-1 on Machida.

Rua outlanded Machida 89-50 in Total Strikes landed including 73 Leg Strikes landed. Rua dominated the fight and did just about everything he needed to do to beat the undefeated Machida, including outlanding Machida in every round, but apparently it wasn’t enough for the judges. All 3 judges scored it 48-47 or 3-2.

The Arm Strikes were virtually the same as both fighters landed 16 total Arm Strikes but it was Rua who dominated every position by landing the damaging Leg Strikes. Rua was able to land 46 kicks when going toe-to-toe with Machida, and landing 27 knees when in the clinch.

Note: This post originally included comments from Cecil Peoples, one of the judges who scored the fight, however Bloody Elbow has reason to believe the quotes may have been fabricated. I didn’t think it was fair to Mr. Peoples to leave the quote up not knowing if he actually made the comments, so I removed them and my commentary. If the quotes are confirmed, I’ll put them back up. You’ll see the title change back to the original title if that’s the case.
