Some stats on reach

It’s a bit of an understatement to say reach will probably be a factor in this weekend’s Jon Jones vs Rashad Evans fight. Jon Jones’ reach: 85 inches. Rashad Evans’ reach: 75 inches. Common sense says the dude with the longer arms gets a pretty serious advantage when it comes to face smashin’, but how much of an advantage exactly? Breakdown Fights takes a look at the stats and how often the fighter with superior reach wins. I’m not about to try and draw any inferrences out of the data – I’ll leave that to you guys and then punch you in the stomach for being giant nerds.
