Fightmetric Scores Edgar vs. Maynard II A 47-47 Draw, But Deemed Maynard More Effective

Fightmetric agreed with the judges’ decision in the Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard UFC lightweight title fight at UFC 125. Using the ten-point must system, they scored the fight a 47-47 draw, however based on their own effectiveness scoring, their numbers say Gray Maynard should have edged out the win.

I’m not really sure how they come up the effectiveness scores though. Taking a look at the raw stats, it seems Edgar would have squeaked out the win. He landed more significant strikes (95-71) and total strikes (97-93). They tied on takedowns, though Edgar’s completion percentage was better (not that it really matters). Edgar scored 3 takedowns on 13 attempts. Maynard scored 3 takedowns on 20 attempts.
