Is my reach and leg length long or short?

ok im 17 years old and I train in MMA. Im 5'7 and my reach is 5'9 1/2 inches(fingertip to fingertip). The length of my leg from hips to feet is 37 1/2 inches. Do you consider that long? and Do i measure my leg length from hips to feet? lol im not sure if im doing it proper but my coach is doing it for me.

so what do you guys think? long? short? good or bad for mma?

Its better to look at it as a comparison of your height and wingspan. Most people's wingspan is close to the same as their height, you can look at fight vids to check the fighters reach and height, most of them have at least a few inches more in their wingspan than in their height. Ultimately, reach advantage is not significant enough to win a fight though... unless your that indian guy from Street Fighter
