    Yep. Check out the report, it uses a horizontal bar graph to show how many landed, the color to show the percentage landed (red = high, yellow = medium, green = low) and the raw numbers of thrown vs. landed are on the right side outside the graph. It also breaks it down by power versus jab, head vs. body vs. leg, by round (buttons at the bottom) and by outside, clinch and ground (buttons at the top).

    It's seriously awesome stuff, and it's similar for grappling. The only thing that sucks is they used to have a good short write-up too, but they got rid of it.

    Huh, according to their statistics, BJ isn't very dangerous on his back compared to other BJJ specialists of his caliber.

    Damn...I'm reading their yahoo sports article on BJ and now I'm hooked. BJ's guard passing is fucking phenomenal. God I love statistics when other people are doing the math.

    EDIT: Wow, did I read that right? BJ has gotten a tap every time he's tried an RNC in an MMA fight? Jesus.

    Also check out how high-percentage GSP's takedowns are

    Based on number of subs off the back only?
    The stats might be skewed in that regard since BJ is very difficult to take down.

    Well, it revealed that when taken down, he doesn't really TRY for submissions very much compared to other BJJ specialists of his caliber. Frank mir was considered to be one of the most aggressive from his back, averaging 1-3 submission attempts per time he's taken down.

    " Penn has fought a bevy of great wrestlers and his legendary flexibility has proved handy in avoiding takedowns. But eventually, these wrestlers always get Penn down. Opponents have attempted 67 takedowns against Penn, succeeding on 25 of them for a success rate of 37%. But that number is heavily influenced by two fights. Matt Serra succeeded on just one of 17 takedown attempts against Penn and Matt Hughes got just one of nine takedowns in their second match. If you remove these stats from the total, you have opponents landing 23 of 41 attempts for a success rate of 56%, which is even better than the average success rate of 48%."

    Fightmetric also gives credibility to my own argument that Cung Le could take Anderson Silva down in the clinch. Opponents have at 66% success rate at takedowns from the clinch against Silva. It's pretty cool to have numbers to back up what you already know, ie-Silva's biggest weakness has always been his wrestling. Interestingly, his worst position is bottom in side control.
