Jack Hermansson's StrikeScore is nearly off the charts at UFC Fight Night 109

One of the biggest issues with the StrikeScore formula is that it can return some extraordinarily high scores for blowout fights. Alex Nicholson only managed to land one strike as he was being destroyed by Jack Hermansson who landed 23 sig strikes. The 23-to-1 ratio created a monstrous score of 2616, which is more than four times the next highest score at UFC Fight Night 109. Until we determine a way to normalize these scores, fighters like Hermansson can enjoy their huge accolades. Learn more about StrikeScore here.
