UFC 126 included several fighters found on the all-time UFC record holders page. There wasn't a tremendous amount of movement among the leaderboards, but here were the most significant changes:

Jon Jones gains two places, entering into a tie for sixth place with Cain Velasquez. Jones went 2-for-2 on takedowns against Ryan Bader, improving his takedown accuracy to 68.2%.

Rich Franklin went 1-for-1 against Forrest Griffin, giving him 20 total takedown attempts in UFC competition. This qualifies him for the takedown accuracy list, where he enters in a tie for ninth place with CB Dolloway, with a career accuracy percentage of 65%.

Both Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin moved up on this list, with Franklin moving one spot into third place and Griffin moving past Randy Couture and Chris Lytle into fourth place.

No movement at the top of the list, as Anderson Silva stays in first place. Silva landed 60% of his strikes against Vitor Belfort, which did drop him 0.1% to a still remarkable 68.3%.
