Who is the tallest or smallest, fattest or skinniest fighters in UFC history?

Its a basic question and i am uncertain if somebody has posted this before if so i am sorry. But this question has puzzled me many times about who is the smallest or tallest or fattest or skinniest?

I can take a guess at Semmy Schilt being the tallest but i am uncertain of the others.

Favourite Fighters:

1) Nick Diaz
2) Fedor Emelianenko
3) Chuck Liddell
4) Forrest Griffin
5) Tyson Griffin

Emmanuel Yarborough was the biggest. He weighed over 600lbs in a UFC fight. I don't know how accurate this list is and you would have to research who actually fought in the ufc but heres a toplists for sizes. http://www.mmawiz.com/toplists

edit: the list does have flaws.

Semmy Schilt (6'10-7') and Gan McGee (6'10) are the tallest. Sherk, Griffin, and other LWs are probably pretty close to the shortest (5'6), but I can't be sure.

I have to think that Curran was the smallest guy ever to fight in the UFC, since he's at 135 now.

Skinniest? Probably Corey "Toothpick Legs" Hill.

Tallest-Semmy Schilt (6'11 1/2)
Biggest-Emmanuel (fat)
Skinniest-I would say Nate Diaz
Shortest-Joe son (Random Task) (5'4)...and he was like 236 pounds lol.

I wouldn't trust that too much, it says loads of fighters were 5'1" rather than 5'11".
