Fight-metric is subjective in its determination of which strikes are "significant" and which strikes aren't. For instance, someone visibly rocking their opponent is worth the same amount as a standard jab landing. It doesn't tell the whole story. And furthermore, it's still human beings making the data, they just happen to work for Fight-metric. Their analyses of entire fights could be fudged for all we know.
There HAS to be some subjectivity when it comes to a sport like this, but their data is far closer to objectivity than the average biased Sherdogger.

The fight itself I can understand...
I'm talking about the fights themselves, but even still, the finish wasn't all that exciting.
For me, and I know I'm not the only one, it's not about the actual finish, but it's whether or not they're TRYING.
I like fights that are dynamic, fluid, with ebbs and flows.
I'd watch a Cruz or a Bendo fight any day, regardless of whether or not they finish, just because they keep moving, they keep up a good pace, and they're constantly trying to cause damage.
The "I just met x fighter..."; seriously, is there any point to these threads?
Every Anderson thread being turned into a Fedor-bashing thread and vice-versa.
Being criticized if I dont care to watch <155lb divisions. If thats your thing, then cool. I have as much respect for the smaller fighters as the larger ones; I just dont find them entertaining personally.
