I don't know if im the only one that noticed but when tito and bader did the staredown did you notice how much taller tito was? They are both 6'2" according to wikipedia but tito looked atleast a good 2-3 inches taller...

Yeah, Bader's a short 6'2" and Tito's a tall 6'2".

UFC listings for fighters are largely inaccurate and cannot be trusted. It is not uncommen for the fighter listed as shorter to be significantly taller in the staredown. Bloody stat bumping.

Tito is a Massive LHW. That was the key to his success. In the old days nobody was cutting weight anything like him. I don't think I've ever seen a bigger LHW.

I was going to say that Tito's downfall in recent fights has been coming into the match with too big of a head- I guess those pictures prove that.

Yeah if you find decent fighter stats let me know, BJ's size is over stated over and over for one. The guy stood straight nose to nose with Edgar and Sherk and yet he is always listed as being 3 inches taller. Diego towered over BJ despite a supposed 1 inch difference.

I remember you mentioning Titos huge weight cut in previous threads but never realized it was to that extent

If Griffin is listed at 6,3 and walks around at 240lbs how big is Ortiz in between fights? He looks enormous next to Chuck.

He could be fighting much less athletic fighters at HW if he wanted to. Man, he's got a big head.
