UFC Fight Night 35 Prelims: Behind the Records Part 1

On 6 days UFC Fight Night 35 will be airing on Fox Sports 1, with the main event between Luke Rockhold and Costas Philippou. Prior to that there will be 11 more fights with fighters ranging from the Top 15 of the UFC to several making their debuts under the bright lights of the UFC. This is the breakdown of the fighters and their records on the prelims.

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.

Below the fights stats you will see the opponents records broken down. On the left you see the opponents overall record as of now, including each time they have faced off if they have rematched. 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.

You remember Charlie Brenneman, he's the guy who upset Rick Story back in 2011 when people thought Story might be a Top 10 Caliber fighter. Since leaving the UFC he has dropped from 170 to 155 pounds and has won four straight fights. As you can see the quality of his opposition dropped drastically, with his opponents going 35-26, with a winning percent of just 57%, compared to the average of 81% in the UFC.

This is Dariush's debut in the UFC and there are no records available for his striking or takedowns from Fight Metric. The numbers that should stick out for this undefeated new comer are his opponents averages: 36% and 44%. Charlie Brenneman has won 79% of his fights and his opponents averages are considerably higher. Dariush has finished all but one of his opponents with 3 documented first round finishes.

Pichel has finished all 7 of his wins by KO or TKO. He has never gone past the second round. He was blitzed by Rustam Khabilov in his UFC debut back in December 2012. The huge step up in competition no doubt played a factor.

Whiteley failed to win his UFC debut as well, losing by TKO 3:54 into the first round back in October. His opponent quality also jumped with his first fight in the UFC. He has also finished all of his wins, with 3 submissions and 4 (T)KO's. At the age of 33 Whiteley's time in the UFC is most likely already limited.

Ozkilic is not a finisher at 125 pounds. With only 3 finishes in 9 career wins and a split decision win in his UFC debut, don't expect him to brutally knock his foe out next Wednesday. (Which he probably will now) His opponent quality hasn't been very low, with fights against journeyman Antonio Banuelos and Chico Camus.

Smolka has actually fought a few decent fighters in his young MMA career for someone coming into their UFC debut. However, you can't ignore that two of his opponents have zero wins. He is more of a finisher than Ozkilic but the quality of opposition has been lower. For a sudden finish I would pick Smolka all the same.

Those are the first 3 fights of UFC Fight Night 35. I will do the next three bouts on Friday.
