Question Reach


i was just wondering how UFC measures a fighters reach? If Silvia's is 73 or somewhere around there, then i know one arm is not 73 inches long. so where are they measuring from and is it in Inch. or Cen. or what? Thanks...

they do it from your shoulders to your knuckles, assuming that both of your arms are the same. and it is in inches

Then that would give him someone with a reach of 73 inches a 6 foot long arm
