cezar-ferreira-7.jpgThere were plenty of facts to come out of “UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie,” which took place inside the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday night.

Some are notable, others irrelevant, and a few will expand your knowledge. For instance, we know Jose Aldo continued his dominant reign atop the featherweight division in the main event with a fourth-round TKO stoppage of Chan Sung Jung in a fight where both the champion and the challenger suffered injuries. ?

?We also know that in the co-main event, Phil Davis was awarded one of the most controversial victories of the year when he spoiled Lyoto Machida’s homecoming party in the form of a highly debatable decision that major media members scored for “The Dragon.”

That’s not all we know, though. With the help of the UFC, FightMetric and Best Fight Odds, check out 30 post-fight facts to come out of “UFC 163: Aldo vs. Jung” below:

*****
GENERAL

MAIN CARD

  • Jose Aldo extended his win-streak to 16 and improved to 13-0 in his UFC and WEC career.
  • Aldo earned his fifth successful UFC title defense, which ties Jon Jones and Tito Ortiz for third most in UFC history. Georges St-Pierre is second with eight title defenses while Anderson Silva leads the category with 10.
  • Phil Davis outscored Lyoto Machida 29-27 in total strikes landed over the course of their three-round contest.
  • Davis has defeated three fighters currently in the Top 10 of the official USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA rankings – Machida, Alexander Gustafsson and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
  • Davis is only the second foreign fighter to earn two UFC victories over Brazilian fighters in Brazil. Featherweight Nik Lentz is the other.
  • Davis has completed at least one takedown against eight of his nine UFC opponents. “Mr. Wonderful” went just two for 10 on takedown attempts against Machida.
  • Machida was defeated for the first time by an opponent who is not a former or current UFC light heavyweight champion.
  • Machida passed Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar for total fight time in the light heavyweight division. At 2:58:54, he’s now third behind Rashad Evans and Tito Ortiz.
  • Cezar Ferreira‘s 47-second submission of Thiago “Marreta” Santos was the third fastest in UFC middleweight history (Rory Singer def. Ross Pointon, TUF 3 Finale, 0:44; Rousimar Palhares def. Thomasz Drwal, UFC 111, 0:45)
  • Santos suffered the first submission loss of his 10-fight career.
  • Thales Leites registered his first UFC victory since Oct. 25, 2008 – a span of 1,743 days (more than four and a half years) and 10 fights. Leites is on his first four-fight win-streak since 2007-2008.
  • Jose Maria had his 17-fight unbeaten streak snapped for his first loss since June 24, 2008 – a span of 1,866 days (more than five years). Maria suffered the first (technical) knockout defeat of his 39-fight career.
