Notice anything missing?  If you said “decision victories,” then congratulations; you nailed it.  Of all five men taken in by “Asia’s largest MMA organization,” not one can say he ever slapped, hugged, laid, prayed, or point-sparred his way to a decision victory.  These new recruits are finishers, plain and simple.

That’s not to say fans shouldn’t take these stats without a heavy dose of salt.  Maybe these guys are nothing more than the newest cans to pile on victories by beating weaker cans.    Or maybe they came from MMA promotions that made it hard to win by decision.

But if they are the hard hitters and choke artists their statistics make them out to be, and if they can continue stacking up finishes and painting the canvas red with their opponents’ blood, then ONE FC fans will be in for a treat – a sweet, bloody treat.
