UFC Fight Night 38 breaks record for most underdog victories

UFC Fight Night 38 was arguably the most exciting event of 2014 thus far. It was also one of the strangest cards we have seen in years. Besides for the smaller cage, the three point deductions, the majority draw, and the seven finishes, UFC Fight Night 38 broke the record for most underdog victories.

On Sunday night, the underdogs won nine of the eleven scheduled bouts. According to MMAJunkie, the nine underdog victories was the most ever at a UFC event, surpassing UFC 152 and UFC on FOX 3. It was also apparently the most underdog victories in any UFC, PRIDE, Strikeforce, WEC, EliteXC or DREAM event.

The biggest underdog of the night was Thiago Santos, who took on Ronny Markes. Santos knocked at Markes with a brutal body kick in just under a minute. Santos cashed in as a 7-1 underdog.
