Fighter's real heights,pics inside
 
I've often been surprised about how much the UFC exaggerates heights.It doesn't matter that they're smaller than the UFC makes out, in fact it makes fighters like Randy Coutures evenmore impressive.

JDS growing to 6'4 and Cain to 6'2 when he is closer to 6'0 promted me to start the thread.

I've met Couture (first pic) and I'm 6'0 exactly, measured plenty of times. I'd guess Randy to be abbout 5'10 tops. He's the same height as 5'9 James Toney, and quite a bit shorter than Machida who I think is 6'0 but listed at 6'1. He's also taller than 6'2 listed Cain.

Met a few others - Akiyama, Maynard, Munoz all a bit shorter than Randy, Mark Hunt definitely not 5'10.

the Tale of the tape is always off. I even saw Cain listed at 6'4 against Junior somewhere during the lead up to the fight. It was ridiculous, you watch them stand next to eachother, Cain is probably 6', I wouldn't be surprised with JDS at 6'4. They used to pretend Carwin was 6'3, he's barely 6'.

Agree completely


vs machida


vs 5'9 James Toney


If Fedor is a bit shorter than Randy it makes him more like 5'9 than 5'11

I cant because the pics only show up as text? Is there a way to post ones that preview in one post? If so how do I do it?

Host. the pics on photobucket or something or at worst, just link them from their original source.

definitely just link their original source.

All you have to do is copy the url of the image and paste it in the text box that opens after you click on the little icon with the mountains in between the speech bubble and the hyperlink icons.

Ive fixed your first post with all the images.

When i was looking for that Randy/Machida image I saw the original fight screen and it listed Randy as 6'2 and Machida as 6'1.
