In Numbers: UFC Fight Night 236

UFC
February 11, 2024
Jack Hermansson slammed the gate shut on Joe Pyfer.

The Swedish veteran weathered a strong early push from Pyfer, then pulled away over the final 15 minutes for a unanimous decision triumph in the UFC Fight Night 236 headliner at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Pyfer, a Dana White’s Contender Series alum, entered the matchup on a three-fight finishing streak in UFC competition, but he faded when he was unable to put his opponent away in the early going. Hermansson, meanwhile, has yet to lose back-to-back fights during his 17-bout Octagon tenure.

Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC Fight Night 236, with statistics courtesy of UFCStats.com.

121: Significant strikes landed by Hermansson. By comparison, Pyfer landed 92. “The Joker” got stronger as the fight progressed, outlanding his foe 37 to 20 in Round 3, 33 to 22 in Round 4 and 16 to 4 in Round 5. Pyfer, meanwhile, outlanded his opponent 24 to 16 in Round 1 and 22 to 19 in Round 2.

.510: Significant striking accuracy for Hermansson, who landed 121 of 235 attempts. Pyfer landed 92 of 250 significant strikes — a 36% success rate.

32: Significant leg strikes for Hermansson. By comparison, Pyfer landed 11.

999: Career significant strikes for Hermansson. With his efforts on Saturday, he surpassed Marvin Vettori and Robert Whittaker for the No. 5 spot in UFC middleweight history.

0: Takedowns landed in six attempts for Pyfer. The former Contender Series competitor failed on all six of his tries in the third and fourth rounds, when momentum began to shift in Hermansson’s direction.

7:05: Total time of Pyfer’s longest UFC appearance before Saturday, a second-round submission of Abdul Razak Alhassan at UFC Fight Night 229. Pyfer was forced to go the full 25 minutes against Hermansson at UFC Fight Night 236.

6: Career knockdowns for Dan Ige, who had a brutal knockout victory against Andre Fili in the UFC Fight Night 238 co-main event. The Dana White’s Contender Series alum put his opponent away 2:43 into the opening stanza to win for the third time in his last four outings.

5: KO/TKO victories since 2020 for Gregory Rodrigues, the most in the UFC’s middleweight division during that time. “Robocop” defeated Brad Tavares via TKO 55 seconds into Round 3 on Saturday night. In addition to Tavares, Rodrigues has stopped Denis Tiuliulin, Chidi Njokuani, Julian Marquez and Jun Yong Park over that period.

24: Octagon appearances for Tavares, tying him with Michael Bisping for the most in UFC middleweight history.

4: Takedowns landed in eight attempts by Michael Johnson in a three-round verdict over Darrius Flowers at lightweight. That’s a UFC career high in 29 appearances for “The Menace,” whose previous best of two came against Joe Lauzon in August 2013.

36: Significant body strikes — out of 61 total — landed by Johnson. Flowers landed 33 significant strikes — nine to the body — in defeat.

4: Victories via arm-triangle in UFC competition for Rodolfo Vieira, a promotional record. Vieira used the maneuver to dispatch Armen Petrosyan 4:48 into Round 1 of their featured middleweight bout. “The Black Belt Hunter” has also used the arm-triangle choke to dispatch Cody Brundage, Saparbek Safarov and Oskar Piechota in the Octagon.

5: Submission victories in UFC competition overall for Vieira, tying him for the third most in the history of the middleweight division.

7: Consecutive KO/TKO victories for Carlos Prates, who defeated Trevin Giles via second-round knockout in his Octagon debut on Saturday night. Prates has finished 13 of his 18 professional triumphs via KO or TKO overall.

31: Significant strike advantage for Giles before he fell victim to a Prates left hand at the 4:03 mark of Round 2. For Prates, that’s the third-largest significant strike deficit for a winner in UFC welterweight history.

101: Significant strikes landed by Marcin Prachnio in a unanimous decision win over Devin Clark. That’s the second most of Prachnio’s nine-bout UFC tenure. The Pole distributed his offense well, landing 42 significant strikes to the head, 37 to the body and 22 to the legs.

17: UFC appearances for Clark, tying him with Alexander Gustafsson for 10th most in the history of the light heavyweight division.

15: Finishes among 15 professional victories for Uzbekistan’s Bogdan Guskov, who secured his first UFC victory with a first-round knockout of Zac Pagua in a preliminary light heavyweight tilt. Guskov has earned 13 of those triumphs by way of KO or TKO.

53: Significant strikes by which Hyder Amil outlanded Fernie Garcie in a second-round technical knockout victory at featherweight. Amil also held a 109-to-31 advantage in total strikes while scoring the fight’s lone knockdown.
