MMA is crazy sport. The craziest one there is. Hands down..And with such crazy and unpredictable sport come also unexpected wins and loses. Some are flukes and some are beginnings of the new era. But at that moment, they all feel the same - WTF??
So I've decided to take it one step further and make one WTF claim here. According to the UFC history, newly crowned Flyweight Champ and Olympic wrestling champ Henry Cejudo actually has a reasonable claim on the UFC heavyweight championship!! Why?? Well, check this table yourself..(taken from my tommorows Steemit post :) )
THIS TOOK ME MORE THAN FREAKING 1 HOUR!!
Haha I thought it'll be cca 15 minutes at max...But it was much more difficult. Here just some funny points I noticed during this "well spent" hour :D
- Jon and DC defend that LHW suuuperstrong. Just this alone shows that the GOAT should be chosen between these two. If there wasn't that Mat Hamill DQ, I would have to stop there and then.
- It was also pretty hard to find a link from Bantamweight to Featherweight.
- Bantamweight with featherweight was easy just cuz of John Dodson and his win over TJ which gave me a lot of freedom for the next step..
Now the off-topic comes...read just if you're interested in programming and technology :)
I've done this manually
..and realized how happy I am to be a programmer and have some overview over current technologies and even the theory behind it. If this Sherdog database could be loaded into some Graph database like Neo4j, I'd looove to play around with it :) It would provie so many nice insights and statistics...well, maybe when I'll have some time in the future :) This could be supercool exercise even for basic algorithm classes - shortest paths, dijkstras etc etc on ordered graph...shit, I'd love to get these data for homework :D
