GSP win Sat would break multiple records

 

UFC welterweight Georges St-Pierre boasts the longest title reign in division history, but if he beats Johny Hendricks Saturday night at UFC 167, three records will in all probability fall, as detalied by FightMatrix:

Record 1: A victory gives GSP the most wins in the UFC ever with 19, breaking the current tie with former champions Matt Hughes and Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, and Anderson Silva have 16, while Jon Fitch and Tito Ortiz have 15.

Record 2: A victory gives GSP the most title bout wins ever with 12, breaking the current tie with former middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

Record 3: Win, lose or draw, if the fight goes over 39 seconds, GSP will earn the record for most time in the Octagon. Current records are:
BJ Penn 5:03:51
Georges St-Pierre 5:03:12
Tito Ortiz 5:01:53
Randy Couture 4:40:06
Frankie Edgar 4:31:11
Ortiz and Couture are retired from the UFC, so are no threat. Both BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar are active and could eventually surpass the record, but this is the most likely record to fall Saturday night.

Where are the stats that back up what is being said though? "He rarely gets hit, but when he gets hit, he gets hurt"   What backs that statement?

That's the article, you're on a PC. It starts " His head striking defense is among the absolute best....but he has suffered knockdowns at a higher-than-average rate ....'.

I googled exactly what you suggested, and got http://www.sherdog.com/news/articles/UFC-167-Statistical-Matchup-Analysis-St-Pierre-vs-Hendricks-59205   People's google searches will bring back different results even if people type in the exact same search. Google goes off your history. Youtube does the same.   I wasn't trying to be a dick. What you quoted was the 2nd time I was asking for a source. This was GSP by the numbers, a subjective stat like significant strikes is just that, subjective.   If we all were able to see this article that you keep talking about, maybe we could judge for ourselves.

This is the app which wont let me paste. Google " UFC 167 statistical matchup". It's the first result. Its the third paragraph down. Don't be a dick and call people liars cause you don't like what they say.

Hey there bud, why dont you calm down a little with the spamming of the UG with this video. In the last hour you have created a thread to showcase this video as well as post it in every thread mentioning GSP or Hendricks. I stopped counting after I saw it in 7 different threads not including the one you created. Buy a grey name at least.
