Nah. There is a significant height difference IRL. Either footwear, posture, camera angle, perspective, or a combination of them is throwing it off. Machida and Schaub both look their listed heights in their UFC fights.

Machida looks smaller than Schaub even with the protective gear so... yeah.

Machida never even comes in at the 205/206 limit. He always weighs in at 200-204. I really don't think Machida even cuts much weight, if he does at all.

I believe he doesn't do the sweating and no drinking routine (or whatever people do to their bodies these days). The amount he cuts is the amount he loses during camp.

The real story hear is what is written on Machida's face.

"Have I fallen so far I have to have my picture taken with this bum?"

Either that or he has bad urine infection.

This. Machida's face just says 'I'm so sorry'.
