Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by MMAJunkie's Mike Bohn.
Breen and Bohn take an in-depth statistical look at UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones ahead of his Saturday title defense against Alexander Gustafsson. The two investigate some of the surprising and revealing historical and FightMetric stats that Jones has posted in his young career, whether numbers can actually contextualize Jones' dominance, his metric similarities with heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez and whether or not Jones is already the best 205 pounder in MMA history.
The duo also discuss what the next advancements in MMA stats might offer, the potential for motion tracking data in fights, how advanced stats might explain Matt Brown's welterweight rise and more.
