    You know what's interesting, though? Alpha Male has the most Finishes... but their win rate, at best, is 50%, while Jackson's, are 30%, but only win about 52% of their fight.

    No, not really considering that the graph doesn't show how many fights each camp was involved, an omission that makes the entire infographic useless as an accurate depiction of the statistics it is trying to represent.

    It's also proves a bit of BS about lesser weight fighters not finishing fights.

    Alpha Male 67% finishes. Enough said.

    Completely BS. As Cheeto pointed out, the number of fights is missing. Also, there are a couple more factors that make that a silly statement based on the chart. The most obvious is your assumption that all fights that go to a decision are boring, which is laughable. The other is the level of competition. Quite simply, it's much harder to finish elite level fighters.

    Here are the fights from Jackson's camp I could quickly find:

    Guida/Maynard - Definitely Boring
    Cerrone/Stephens - Fun dominant fight for Cowboy that ended in decision
    Cerrone/Guillard - Great fight with early finish
    Sanchez/Ellenberger - Barn burner decision. FOTY contender
    Condit/Diaz - Some will say boring, but I liked it. Condit is a notoriously exciting fighter
    Condit/GSP - Most exciting GSP fight in years ended in decision.

    Brandao/Elkins - Decision fight that I don't recall the details. However, Brandao almost always brings it.
    Brandao/Gambino - See above
    Watson/Tavares - Split decision - don't remember the details
    Watson/Marshman - Early finish
    Page/Picket - Fun fight with finish
    Page/Caceras - Fun fight with finish
    Garcia/Grice - Decision. I'm sure you love Leonard
    Garcia/Holloway - Fun split decision
    Jones/Evans - Good decision fight

    Jones/Belfort - Good fight with finish
    Swanson/Roop - Fun fighter nice finish
    Swanson/Pierson - Ditto
    Swanson/Oliviera - Ditto
    Perez/Albert - Ditto
    Perez/Stone - Ditto
    Perez/Bloodworth - Ditto
    Browne/Griggs - Super fun HW
    Browne/Silva - Ditto
    Akiyama/Shields - Akiyama is almost always exciting
    Dodson/Elliot - Dodson is always high pace
    Dodson/da Silva - Fight sucked, but had a finish
    Stann/Bisping - Fun fight
    Stann/Sakara - Stann always tries to be exciting
    Roberts/Okami - Tko finish
    Roberts/Maghalese - Don't recall

    Fights in Bold were decisions


    ANYWAY, when you look over the fighters in the camp, despite some boring performances, most, even those that went to decision, were entertaining fights. Even some of the "boring" fights were uncharacteristic of those fighters. The Jackson line of BS has been laughable for years. Stop buying into everything Dana tells you.

    It also doesn't show that only about 10% of those fights were even worth watching.

    Unfortunatly that one fight at the top there, cancels everything out for me. One of the most ridiculous pieces of **** fights ever seen. And that was all Gregs doing. Maynard did the best he could to save it.
