its the same way in every sport. Even in college. High school coaches do the same thing when they are trying to get colleges to look at their players.. Why? No idea...

I've met Randy in person. I'm 6'3 &3/4. I'd say Randy is at least 6'1.

I was also 5 feet from Brendan Schaub in Toronto at UFC 152 (he was there to watch the fights) and was doing a community works program that week. He looks to be at least 6'3 and he's listed at 6'4.

I literally rubbed shoulders with Dan Hardy at UFC 129 going past Joe Ferraro's booth. No way that guy is 6 foot. He's 5'9 or 5'10 at most. Maybe they add the mohawk to his height?

I've heard from many sources that Anderson Silva is taller than what the UFC lists him.

This is weird. Why would UFC lie about height, weight etc? In WWE it is understandable, they like to make out their wrestlers are all superhuman, but in a legitimate sport? Don't get it.

As much as it is a sport, it still has to make money. Whereas you and I will watch every fight put on for us. Those not as interested are more likely to buy a PPV or watch a free fight if they hear its two 6'4 beasts going at it, rather than two 6 ft guys.

I get your point. Do the casual fans really think like that though? I mean, yeah you seem to be spot on in regards to why they do it, I just think that a would a one inch difference in height really affect PPV buy rates that much? If history has proven me wrong then fair play. Its just not something that has ever bothered me. If I was a casual, I'd want to see the best of the best, regardless of their stats.
