It play just as big of a part, as does being weight drained.
Well if you look at the 10 biggest Featherweights guys that are 5'11-6'1 and you look at their records it's pretty clear reach isn't working for them.


Cole Miller 0-2
Pablo Garza 2-2
Jonathan Brookins 1-2
Josh Grispi 0-3
Hatsu Hioki 2-1
Max Holloway 2-1
Cody McKenzie 0-1
George Roop 1-3
Steven Siler 3-1
Milton Vieira 0-0-1

Then looking at BW the guys over 5'8, it's not as horrible as FW's but still only McDonald is a top ten ranked guy.

Johnny Bedford 1-0
Alex Caceres 3-1
Roland Delorme 2-1
Michael McDonald 4-0
Dustin Pague 1-3
Francisco Rivera 1-1-1
Walal Watson 1-3
