    That's pretty cool, especially once more of these maps will be released so we can make comparison based on fighters, styles, etc..

    Yet another bullshit way to gauge decision victories.

    God help us if GSP comes back.

    I can't wait for sherdoggers to start using heat maps as evidence for why a fighter should have won a controversial decision.

    I'm trying to think of a practical application to the use of this but I simply can't come up with anything.

    I imagine it would be just a circle around the edge of the octagon.

    I was hoping it would be polite speech vs. smack talk

    They should measure amount of sweat lost to determine who tried harder.

    LOL.

    So do I.

    This is a great concept, but I don't see the relevancy in determination of who won a round.

    I think this would actually be pretty useful for a fighter to study whether or not their opponents favor a specific movement.

    Absolutely useless and meaningless. Where someone is relative to another in the cage is inconsequential (or should be). Another rubbish metric to try and equate to 'octagon control' which it in itself is a garbage criteria
