Mixed martial arts may not have reached its statistical revolution stage like other sports (and perhaps it never will given its primordial nature), but there is still plenty of good data out there. So, following each UFC event, The MMA Manifesto will parse the numbers provided by FightMetric and target which pugilist enjoyed the best statistical night.
Cat Zingano (vs Marion Reneau)

57% significant strike accuracy
6 takedowns (ties women’s bantamweight record)

All hail Alpha Cat, Queen of the Takedown.
