Look at that...

That's pretty fucking concerning in my opinion.

It's not concerning at all. You go from 8 fights in 93 with no time limit to over 200 fights with rounds and time limits. Couple that with the fact that more and more fighters are becoming well rounded which makes it harder to finish with a sub or ko your bound to have a 40-60 % finish rate.

Pretty much my thoughts as well... Outside of about 15-20 guys most fighters are in there to finish their opponent, its just much more difficult these days.

I think going all the way back to 1993 is a bit ridiculous, but look at the last 10 years and especially 2010 and you will see a trend towards less finishes.

I'd be interested to see how different organizations compared. Strikeforce (and PRIDE in its day) seems to deliver more finishes.
