FightMetric Report for Leonard Garcia vs. Nam Phan from the TUF 12 Finale

via Scott Petersen, MMAWeekly.com

Strikeforce kept me busy during the TUF finale, so I wasn't able to keep a close eye on the bout between Leonard Garcia and Nam Phan. From what I've gathered from Twitter, however, it seems the judges gifted Leonard Garcia another decision victory. 

FightMetric quickly released their report for the bout, and it doesn't look good for Garcia.

Round one was close with Phan edging Garcia in both Total and Significant Strikes 33 to 30. Round two was all Phan, though. Phan outlanded Garcia 45 to 18. Of those 45 strikes, 41 targeted the head and 16 of those were power strikes. Phan significantly outlanded in round three as well, nearly doubling Garcia 38 to 22. Again, the majority of Phan's strikes, 29, targeted the head.

Garcia was awarded a takedown in both rounds two and three. FightMetric credited Phan with a rear-naked choke attempt in round three.

Phan crushed Garcia in FightMetric's Effectiveness Score 496 to 279. The extrapolated ten-point must score had Phan winning 30-27.

I look forward to watching this fight with my full concentration. It seems that swinging your arms like a windmill and walking forward is a valid way of winning a mixed martial arts contest in the eyes of too many judges.
