Shane Carwin growing?

I realize this thread is a little ridiculous, but nontheless seems to me that Shane Carwin was originally listed as 6'3", but now he's listed as 6'5" on ufc.com.

I don't really think he's any taller than Lesnar. Will be interesting to see them standing side by side come weigh in time.

Addtionally, he doesn't look all that much taller than Gonzaga in this pic and Gonzaga is listed as 6'1" on ufc.com

Anybody have evidence to prove otherwise?

Evidence? We focus mainly on wild conjecture and useless speculation when we aren't crunching MMA math.

Shane in actuality weighs 300-350 lbs and is 6'5" but he cuts to 260-250 and 6'1".

Shane isn't "growing" per se, he simply gets bigger and stronger the more angry he is, thus providing these odd disparities in measurement. rumor has it he was exposed to gamma radiation during a secret engineering experiment.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

I love this thread so much, I wish I could have sex with it.

Now to be serious, the UFC has been known to exaggerate some stats before. I can't remember off the top of my head though.

This is what Shane looked like before the gamma radiation.
