Mur and Carwin are both about 6'1." Lesnar's approximately 6'2," according to celebheights.com:

I didn't realise the UFC were claiming Carwin was 6'5 anyway? I always thought he was 6'3 as is Mir.

Brock Lesnar 6'2 lol, that site is getting some numbers mixed up.

Looks like Mir is trying the horsemeat diet.

Dude bulked up fast. So fast that even Overeem is impressed and is wondering just what kind of horsemeat Frank Mir scarfs down.

Mir has a very large frame, but until after his loss at UFC100 he never really took strength and conditioning seriously. Now that he finally has it was easy to put on the lbs because his body can accomodate it.

His gains were basically "noob gains." Whenever someone picks up a weight for the first time and has a decent diet, they can gain anywhere from 15-30 pounds in a matter of months. Its not that his body couldn't accomodate it before. That said, Carwin is naturally larger and broader built than Mir. Just look at the width of Carwin's back and the size of his calves.

I've my doubts that Mir or Carwin are 6 foot 1. I'm 6 foot 1, and I can't see myself stacking eye-to-eye with those two. Besides, both stand fairly tall over Dana White, who's listed at around 5 foot 10/11. And I'd agree, no way is Lesnar 6 foot 2. Looks like a legitimate 6 foot 3 to me. But hey, I guess it's impossible to tell until you're actually standing next to these behemoths.

I think the 6'2" estimate is pretty darn close.

Compare John Cena and Lesnar at 2:07 in this clip:



Cena is approx. 6'.5." Lesnar does appear to be about 1.5" taller. Both are in tennis shoes.

In these photos, Lesnar appears to be at least 3" taller than Couture:






I believe both Randy Couture and Fedor are 5'11," 3" shorter than Lesnar:




edit: here's the youtube link in case I didn't embed the video properly:

Going with Carwin with a slight edge, but not making any bets. Too hard to call this fight. Both look ready, Carwin was intense while Mir looked relax cuz you know he's seen this before.

Never seen Frank in this shape before it's odd...lolz!

I wonder if Carwin will quit his job and train full time after Frank beats him tomorrow.
