Shorter limbs are also far better on the ground from a defensive BJJ stand point. Shorter limbs mean they have less to lock onto and control.

Also, Silva has 3/10ths an inch more reach than Forrest, so the punch was more well timed and well placed than having a reach advantage. His reach is 77.6 while Forrest's is 77.
Tim Sylvia vs Jeff Monson was something like a 14" reach advantage.
