UFC NEWS – Nate Diaz Set A New CompuStrike Record Last Friday Against Donald Cerrone
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%.
