UFC Records Anderson Silva

The 15 Most Impressive UFC Records of All Time

The UFC has progressed a long way since it staged its first event at the McNichols Sports Arena in Denver, Colorado, in November 1993.

The mixed martial arts promotion now rivals boxing in the popularity stakes, with exciting pay-per-view events and increased media coverage attracting more people to the sport.

Most of the major fights generate massive interest amongst sports bettors as they are generally 50/50 bouts rather than one-sided affairs.

The UK best betting sites offer UFC odds throughout the year, adding to the excitement for MMA fans whenever they watch the sport live.

One of the most interesting aspects of the UFC from a punting perspective are the various records held by the sport’s top stars.

Charles Oliveira is one of the biggest stars in the sport and is responsible for a couple of hugely impressive records in the UFC.

He holds the records for the most fight finishes (19) and the most via submission (16) – numbers that highlight what his next opponent Islam Makhachev needs to be wary of when they meet.

When it comes to knockouts, heavyweight Derrick Lewis is undoubtedly a man to be feared. He has recorded 13 knockout victories in the UFC thanks to his brutal punching power.

Neil Magny holds the record for the most wins by decision (13), highlighting his ability to dominate opponents in fights that go the distance.

Anderson Silva’s run of 16 successive victories is the longest win streak in UFC history, while Jon Jones has the most title fight wins (14).

Donald Cerrone has collected the most UFC bonuses (18) of all time, seven of which were for the Performance of the Night.

UFC legend Georges St-Pierre holds three records – most control time (2:42:04), most top position time (2:22:05) and most takedowns (90).

Bartosz Fabinski has the highest control time percentage in the UFC, recording a whopping 79% since joining the promotion in April 2015.

Resisting takedown attempts is a key skill in the UFC, particularly when fighters face opponents with solid grappling skills.

Tyson Nam and Adrian Yanez hold the record for least bottom position time (0:00), with the pair successfully defending all takedown attempts against them.

Max Holloway holds two impressive UFC records – most significant strikes (2,975) and most strikes landed (3,217) – to back up his claim of being the best boxer in the company.

However, Holloway’s skills did not help him in his most recent outing as he was comfortably defeated by Alexander Volkanovski in a featherweight title fight at UFC 276.

When it comes to being accurate with strikes, no one does it better in the UFC than Dutch heavyweight Alistair Overeem.

The 42-year-old has landed an impressive 74% of his significant strike attempts. He is one of only two fighters to win a world championship in K-1 and MMA.
