UFC 141: Lesnar v Overeem


Many have called it the best performance of his career and it is kind of hard to argue that point.

Last Friday in the UFC 141 co-main event, Nate Diaz outpointed Donald Cerrone in dominant fashion to not only earn himself a judge’s decision but also set a new CompuStrike record for a three-round fight.

Diaz now becomes the fighter to hold the highest striking percentage landed in a 15-minute bout. With 258 of his 314 punches landed he was able to execute a solid 82% accuracy rating in the bout against Cerrone.

To be clear, the new record is for percentage of strikes landed in a three-round fight and not percentage of strikes landed in a fight scheduled for three rounds that ended earlier than the scheduled time limit.

By comparison, the latest victim of a Stocktonian, Donald Cerrone, landed only landed 66 out of his 200 strikes thrown for just 33%.
