Cool, thanks.


Where about in your arm pit? Middle? Closed fist, at the end of your knucles?

That's how they do it in boxing, I don't think its the same in mma. If it is some of the fighters would have their arms dragging along the ground going by their stats. I think they use wing span... finger tip to finger tip.

Yeah.. I was woundering, I measured myself, and got a total of 50". I'm 5'9, and it seems the average MMA fighter of my height had a reach of at least 60"...
