Each person has different reach on the arms, ie: every person has different arm length and as such longer arms that can reach farther. For example BJ Penn and Matt Hughes are the same height but BJ has a 1.5" reach advantage.

Some guys like Joe Riggs have short length for their height and other guys like Jeremy Horn has the reach advantage on most the same height. often doesnt play a huge role in fights but in the one like Tim Sylvia and Jeff Monson it will.

Just watch Sherk vs GSP. You'll see what reach advantage is.
