In a video preview for this weekend’s hotly anticipated UFC 140, THQ and UFC Undisputed 3 have run 25 AI simulations of the World Light Heavyweight Championship between the great Lyota ‘The Dragon’ Machida and the 24 year old phenom Jon ‘Bones’ Jones—with Jones retaining his belt 72% of the time.
Some interesting facts from the simulation:
- Jone’s landed 42% more strikes than Machida
- Machida only recorded a single knockout over the 25 matches
- Of Jone’s wins, just one was by submission
Whether these simulations will get it right who knows, that is why they actually have the fights right? In the meantime, check the video and then tune into the real thing at UFC 140 this Saturday, live from Toronto, Canada. For my money, I tend to the think the simulation got it right, I think Jones dominates and it won’t go past two rounds, who you got?
