I usually say I am 5"11 when I am really 5"10 1/2. The half just sounds dumbso clearly I am going to round up.

These measurements were all accurate at the time they were taken, although I'm sure rounding took place as well. So while I usually tell people I'm 6'2", by the time I'm heading to be at night, depending on what I've been doing, I might be more like 6'1".
I thought it was the other way around. I thought throughout the day you get taller and when you sleep at night you contract. I could be wrong, though.

It's about compaction of the spinal column though. The column itself is more or less a series of layers of bone separated by cartilage surrounding the cord.


Wait... are you trolling me?

No I really thought it was the other way around. My Gym teacher told me when I was a kid and I always remembered.

Its something that could be fixed easily to prevent retarded staredowns that make the stats look like bullshit. Like barao in the space of a night went from a 19 to 27 to 32 fight win streak through the commentary pre show and during!

Promoters will usually stretch the truth in order to bring as much excitement to an event as possible. It's a part of advertising.

Hector Lombard actually had a draw with Kyle Noke four fights after his last loss coming into the UFC, which mean he was on a 20 fight win streak. Do you think the UFC was going to promote the fight that way? No. They were going to say he was on a 24 or 25 fight win streak comming into the UFC.

Jake Shields before the fight with GSP had had his last fight in strikeforce with Dan Henderson in which he had been brutally knocked down in the first round before eventually getting the decision victory. Do you honestly think the UFC would have done a good job of promoting the GSP/Shields fight had they stated that? They instead stated the Jake Shields had never been knocked down and was on a 16 fight win streak.

Lyoto Machida took plenty of shots from BJ Penn and Stephan Bonnar before eventually taking his first loss from The second fight with Shogun. Did they state that exact fact before the first Shogun/Machida fight? No. They promoted that fight as the Mythodical Dragon who has never been hit vs Shogun, the guy who dominated pride.

They do these things for promotional veiwership. What is there to worry about if you as a fan already know the true statistics of these fighters, yet is still content with watching the UFC? It's not like you are completely clueless as to any of the fighters statistics, and the UFC promos and the Tales of the tape are the only outlets you have as to finding out these.fighters.physical stature and credintials. If they want to stretch the truth, let them. I mean, what high profile athletic event do YOU know that does an effective job of promoting themselves while at the same time, tells the absolute, 100% truth?

Fighting there is weight classes,
NFL and NBA players heights are wrong because many were taken in college while many continue to grow.
