UFC Fight Night 35: The Big Four Behind the Records

On Wednesday UFC Fight Night 35 will be airing on Fox Sports 1, with the main event between Luke Rockhold and Constaninos Philippou. This is the final article for UFC Fight Night 35 and breaks down the records of the Co-Main and Main Event fighters. Here are links to the first three articles breaking down every fighter on the card:


Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

Here is a link to a bloodyelbow article that breaks down the records of GSP, Fedor, Silva, Penn, Jon Jones, andMegumi Fujii.


I am having issues with the formatting on this fanpost, hopefully it won't be too difficult to read.

I will only be doing Co-Main and Main Event breakdowns in the future. If there is a request for an entire card I will do so or for specific fights.


In each record break down you will see a fighters overall record, the record of their last 5 bouts and the record they obtained fighting in the UFC or other major organization. In addition there is the winning percentage, finishing percentage and the number of (T)KO's and submissions in their records.

Their stance, height and reach are all listed as well. On the far right are the significant striking accuracy, striking defense, takedown accuracy and take down defense percentages provided by Fight Metric from their websites.

On the left you see the opponents overall record as of now, including each time they have faced off if they have fought a second or third time.

On the right it displays the opponents record prior to the contest that took place.

*Any notes are meant to display a loss, title win, title loss, no contest, ect.

At the very bottom it displays the added up records if wins, losses, and draws and the average record. Below that there is a breakdown of the major promotions numbers since their UFC debut. It's all very cut and dry and if you have any questions about what you're seeing please feel free to ask about it in the comments.

Credentials/Accolades: BJJ Blue Belt, 5x Amateur MMA Champion

The last man to defeat Robbie Lawler, Larkin is primarily a striker and has decent attack and defense. We all know he was brutally finished by "King Mo" Lawal back in Strikeforce at his last fight at light heavyweight but it was overturned to a no contest after King Mo tested positive for steroids.

Not a great finisher at 55% finish rate, having not finished an opponent since KO'ing Phil Baroni in January 2011. Solid kickboxer and has fought decent competition in the UFC but not top level opponents. Has showcased good takedown defense defending 81% of takedowns against him. Will likely have a speed disadvantage.

LUKE ROCKHOLD
GYM:
American Kickboxing Academy
Base: Wrestling/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Credentials/Accolades: Last Strikeforce Middleweight Champion, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt, Blue/Purple Belt World Championships BJJ,

Rockhold has a base in grappling, from Judo to Wrestling to BJJ and has not been striking as long as his opponent but has picked it up quickly. Level of competition has varied from world beater to chump in his career with good success. Only loss since 2007 to Vitor Belfort. Will have a reach advantage and probably in kicking technique.

There is the entire card. Feel free to comment and post your predictions.
