Introduction to Significant Strikes

Significant strikes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) serve as a critical measure of a fighter’s ability to not only damage their opponent but also to sway judges’ decisions in their favor. These strikes are distinguished by their force, accuracy, and impact, significantly affecting the outcome of a bout. They are the ones that cause visible harm, disorient, or even knock down the adversary.

Max Holloway’s Unrivaled Record

Max Holloway stands at the pinnacle of this domain with a staggering 3,197 significant strikes, a testament to his relentless and efficient style inside the octagon. The former featherweight champion, through his twelve-year tenure with the UFC, has established a lead that overshadows his closest competitor by more than 60%. Holloway’s achievement highlights his exceptional ability to engage and dominate his opponents effectively.
