By the Numbers - Significant Strikers

Our sport is always evolving, and nowhere is it more apparent than in strike totals. Nowadays, UFC fighters from 115 pounds to 265 pounds have the cardio, creativity and confidence to land 100+ significant strikes in a 25-minute and 15-minute bout alike. It's a high watermark that more and more are crossing these past few years, but it is never less impressive when they do. However the total is proportioned - by head, body and leg targets or a mix of attacking on the feet and on the ground, landing 100+ significant strikes is an offensive output mark to be revered.

Here are all the 100+ significant strikes landed performances inside the Octagon in chronological order by weight class (and, yes, former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia was the first to do so).
