As a company focused on individual championships and success, it is easy to see why the UFC holds winning streaks in such high regard when comparing the sport’s top fighters.
A winning streak is an uninterrupted sequence of victories or wins in sport, the more victories that are added, the greater the winning streak is for the fighter.
