    Conde Koma, you just keep putting your foot in your mouth over and over in this thread. When your list of unskilled fighters include two of the most dominant fighters in their time you really need to consider adjusting your definition.

    Possible parallel: Fedor (while being very skilled in judo and sambo) is not a very skilled striker, yet knocks people out because of his aggression and pressure. I know it's not a perfect example, but I think it fits, more or less.

    Also, agreed, he was fine socially up until Don King got his claws into him.

    Problem with your Fedor analogy is that the majority of his wins have come by submission (which are double the amount of KO's he has).

    I know he's skilled in submitting people, that's not the issue in question. He's not great at stand-up striking, but still knocks people out--this is the issue. Please read carefully, there are nuances about.

    Mike Tyson was powerful and aggressive AND a skilled boxer, thats why he was so dominant in the sport.

    Your analogy is faulty because you are using Fedor as proof that aggression = knockouts when he has 7 KO's in 32 matches.

    Guess you didn't catch that nuance.

    Regardless of the number, 7 out of 32 is still not a small percentage. 25% is well above the 5% chance deviation. If his knockouts were by chance, we might expect to see one or two, but seven? I think this supports my analogy.

    Its obvious that Tyson is incredibly talented and skilled, so people should stop bringing that into question.

    Your example is faulty because ~22% is low compared to fighters who are known for their KO ability. Compare this to Chuck Liddell at 50% and Rua at 71%.

    Also, I never said Fedor's KO's were by chance, so that standard deviation stuff doesn't really backup anything.

    But it doesn't explain how Fedor gets KOs at all, when people with low striking ability should be expected to get 0-5% KOs, if only by chance.

    Therefore, if Fedor doesn't get KOs from luck, and he doesn't get them by skill, how does he get them? As I began with, I believe he gets them solely because of his aggression and power.

    No one in this thread said his striking ability was low.

    Therefore your application of statistics is again wrong.
