Dear fellow Bloodyelbow readers,
While doing my thesis, I stumbled upon this interesting piece of research. Please do excuse me if it has already been posted on bloodyelbow.com
Some of the findings are stunning if true.
"It is extremely curious that ground jabs to head attempted and other jabs attempted are both positively associated with the probability of winning a decision, while ground jabs to head landed and other jabs landed are negatively associated with the probability of winning a decision."
"The other interesting finding here is that knockdowns, power to head landed, and other power landed are all found to be positively associated with winning a decision. These types of blows seem to be the most obviously violent and harmful of the blows we have accounted for. "
Do give it a read and have fun analyzing their findings!
