    I know it's been done to death with people talking about how bad he is.......and yet his shadow boxing gets him huge hype from Rogan and White....but I hadn't seen any numbers so I decided to look in to it

    his last 5 fights


    vs Holloway(loss)
    92 of 367 landed
    25.07%


    vs Grice(loss)
    30 of 101 landed
    29.7%

    vs Phan II(loss)
    107 of 382 landed
    28.01%


    vs KZ
    16 of 88 landed
    18.18%

    vs Phan I(technically a win but even ray charles knows it was a loss)
    70 of 288 landed
    24.31%



    Overall striking for past 5 fights:
    315/1226 landed
    25.69%



    how does this guy get the praise he does........ I'll never understand. He's basically just a human punching bag and it's been 4 1/2 years since he legitimately beat anyone(Jens Pulver)

    Garcia's fist causing air to blow into his opponent's face amounts to at least 12% of strikes landed per fight

    Would you rather watch Leben/Brunson....or a Garcia fight??

    I don't understand why he gets hate at all.

    I'd rather not watch either but if I had to chose I guess a garcia fight because I love watching him get his ass kicked

    Dude brings it every fight, who gives a shit that he doesn't hit x amount of strikes.

    clearly the Ufc only has 4 fighters Brunson, Leben, Garcia and whoever he faces.

    Garcia is awful and the Ufc has hundreds of exciting fighters. Excuse us if we prefer exciting fighters with some actual skill.

    I could go out and bring it in every fight if... much like garcia I'd lose every time but if that's all it takes to be a UFC fighter someone tell me how to get in touch with Silva and I'll do it

    Difference is that Garcia could actually take a punch, in addition to being technically superior, more powerful, etc. etc.

    Split-decision Garcia comes to bang bro! Rogan gives so much unwarranted hype you have to disregard mostly everything he says. Just trying to build excitement, it's his job.

    Cut Garcia. Use the space in the roster for Crusher or Doo Ho Choi.
