Happy 5th Birthday to

Posted 2:24 PM
"Thank you for visiting the FightMetric Blog, home of the best MMA statistics and analysis found anywhere on the web."

Five years ago today, the first post in FightMetric history began with those words. Hundreds of posts, thousands of fights, and millions of pageviews later, those words are as true today as they were on October 29, 2007.

In the intervening years, FightMetric has grown from a labor of love to a thriving business and from a part-time hobby to a company with over 25 team members on four continents. And we're still growing all the time.

On our fifth birthday, we want to take the time to thank the MMA community for making this possible with your support, your curiosity, and your insatiable demand for more and better data.  We have even greater things planned for 2013 and beyond and we can't wait to share them with you. 

The field of MMA statistics looks vastly different today than it did five years ago. It is our aim that another five years will present a landscape you'll hardly recognize. We ended our inaugural post five years ago the same way we will today:

"So welcome, make yourself comfortable, and get ready to start watching the sport with a new set of eyes. Welcome to FightMetric."
