    What are the highest striking accuracy percentages of each weightclass?

    I'm pretty sure Anderson is MW's highest percentage with like 60 something percent.

    anybody else?

    Fabio does throw a lot of body shots which usually doesn't miss compared to a strike at a distance which is why it's amazing that Anderson is #1 and far ahead of #2.

    GSP usually is pretty accurate, as well as Cruz. BJ back in the day was pretty spot on and prime arlovski was like a laser. Pin point.

    depends if you mean standing strikes or total strikes. Cain is up there but i bet lots of this are from GnP which isnt as impressive as a high % from guys who are mostly standing like Andy and Machida.

    These are a bit old. Updated stats would probably have Jimi Manuwa above Diabate imo.

    They're also exclusivly "power head strikes" so not strictly speaking "striking accuracy".
