UFC records that might never be broken

Mixed martial arts has a number of remarkable records. The sport is still in its infancy in comparison to other prominent sports, such as football and baseball, and most existing records may be broken at some point.

Jim Miller now has the most UFC victories with 24. Jon Jones, who currently has 20 UFC victories, is a few slots down the list. It’s not difficult to picture Jones, winning five more UFC fights before retiring. In fact, it is not easy to see him losing five more fights in his career.

Such records will one day be broken, advanced, and maybe broken again. The controlled chaos of a mixed martial arts competition allows for some incredible things to occur and fluke occurrences.

And every now and again, we get both.

We’ll take a look at a few MMA records that are unbreakable. Unbreakable records might not always depict the pinnacle of the sport, but they are nonetheless noteworthy. Jones and Ronda Rousey were two of the top fighters in the sport. She won her UFC debut in under 20 seconds, which is only one of many astounding statistics on her career.

MMA has had a wild ride in its first two decades of existence, and some insane things have happened. With a few fights set to take place before the end of September, there will be plenty to bet on in the sport, but you can also enjoy playing some pokies at Joe Fortune Casino throughout the month. Let’s look at four unbreakable UFC records that have been established.

Jon Jones and Demetrious Johnson have the most title defenses

Following a public dispute with UFC CEO Dana White, much speculation has centered on Jon Jones’ future. ‘Bones’ had dominated the light heavyweight class for over a decade, successfully defending his title 11 times before deciding to abandon his title and move up to heavyweight.

His points victory against Dominick Reyes in February 2020 tied him with Demetrius Johnson for the most UFC championship defenses in history, although breaking the record will be difficult for Jones.

Jones’ next title defense is threatened by none other than new UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, who dethroned Stipe Miocic with a stunning performance at UFC 260. According to current conjecture, the two will square off later this year.

Derrick Lewis has the most knockouts

Although numerous fighters were vying for Vitor Belfort’s record of the most UFC knockouts (12), Derrick Lewis’ recent knockout of heavyweight contender Curtis Blaydes put him at the top of the tree.

The American has won his previous two fights by second-round knockout, and he is regarded as one of the game’s toughest hitters, along with fellow heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou.

Thiago Santos of Brazil was not far behind, with 11 overall knockouts in the UFC, and may have match Belfort and Lewis’ record in his next appearance – however he recently left the promotion amidst a losing streak.

Future fights can be wagered on across multiple trusted betting sites, but virtual and online casino gamers can play all year round.

Jon Jones has the most PPV main events

Randy Couture’s long-standing record (18) for the most PPV Main Event bouts for a single fighter is also on Jon Jones’ radar.

While middleweight superstar Anderson Silva came close, compiling 17 main event fights at the height of his career, with no main event fights since UFC 234, it is doubtful that the Brazilian would ever reach this mark.

On the other hand, Jones still has many years at the top before moving to heavyweight and will probably be the main event in his next bout. He now has 15 main event matches under his belt, and a strong run in his new division might see him break the record in the near future.

Plenty is lined up in the UFC schedule, with several bouts slated for September 18. It offers a great escape from the intrigues of playing online pokies that you’ve probably got firmly hooked on.

Anderson Silva has the most straight victories

Anderson Silva holds the record for the most straight wins in UFC history. Between June 2006 and July 2013, the ‘Spider’ won 16 consecutive fights until succumbing to Chris Weidman in a legendary way.

Former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has a 13-fight winning streak in the UFC and appeared to be the most serious danger to Silva’s record. ‘The Eagle’ had defeated a who’s who of lightweight fighters before deciding to put up his gloves after a win over Justin Gaethje in October.

Amanda Nunes, the two-weight world champion, is now on a 12-fight winning run after defeating Megan Anderson at UFC 259. Nunes, probably the best female combat athlete of all time, hads the potential to break Silva’s record but fell short in a title defense against Juliana Pena.  You can check out UFC fight schedules on ESPN.

Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has already won 15 consecutive fights; however his streak was derailed by a well-placed head kick from Leon Edwards.
