Here’s a presentation slides to a UFC data analysis project I recently put together. The motivation behind the project was to analyze UFC match data and identify interesting patterns and trends in the sport. The data was scraped from http://ufcstats.com/ and provide comprehensive statistics on fighters and matches from past events. The collected data included events from UFC 1 (Nov 12, 1993) to UFC on ESPN (May 30, 2020).
Here I put together a map animation showing the various locations of UFC events that have taken place worldwide. From November 12, 1993 (UFC 1) to June 6, 2020 (UFC 250), there’s been a total of 518 events and UFC has visited 161 cities and 28 countries.
