the more fights you have in the ufc the better chance you have of staying of these list.

oh and gsp lost two of those 7 fights that finished in the first or second round. this is why his fights last longer now.
Then they have their math wrong because of GSP's 17 UFC fights, he has an average fight time of 14 min 57 seconds. If they are including all of his fights, it's probably less because most of his pre-ufc fights ended in the first round.

Actually, I made a mistake in my calculation. Thanks for mentioning "17" because I had 16. Rechecked and had to add another fight to the list - Matt Hughes I (I know, I know, but I didn't mark the even or opponent on my first calculation). That made the average fight time 13.423...min or 13 minutes and 25 seconds (16 seconds away from #10)

However, if we go with the recent track record for both GSP and Jake Shields, this fight will last the full 25 minutes and given that, would put GSP at 14.066666... or 14 minutes and 10 seconds/fight and would put him at #8 on the list ahead of Jens Pulver, which should make Dave happy

looking at this list, it is probably better to be on the longer fight list ... yes it means you are finishing you opponents less, but you are still winning (most of the time) ... if you look on the fast fight list, with the exception of carwin and maybe a couple others, those people are actually getting finished on a lot of the occassions ... so yeah, i would venture to say that i'd rather take longer to finish, but end up with a good result, than get it done fast with a poor result ... LOL ..
