In 2009 at Fight Night 17, known then as “Deep Waters”, Matt Riddle defeated Steve Bruno by unanimous decision. On that night Riddle landed a astonishing 251 ground strikes on his way to victory.
That record stood for 11 years until tonight at UFC Fight Island 6 when Jun Yong Park defeated John Phillips by unanimous decisions landings 258 ground strikes.
Yong Park and his team had no clue they had broken a record or who it actually belonged to, believing Cormier was talking about Khamzat Chimaev.
