how does the ufc measure reach?

How does the ufc measure reach? Is it fist to fist or fingertip to fingertip? They list Chuck at 77.5". I am 6" 3 and have average arm length and very wide shoulders. Fingertips I am about 82" and fists I am about 74". Am I long or short?

its probaly because you have board shoulders. Tim isn't board for a big guy. Dan Christerson has like a 86" reach

makes sense then. Tim's shoulders do look like a 12 year olds.

They measure from fist-to-fist, but their numbers seem to be off a lot of the time.

I dont think so. There is no way Chuck is 77.5" from fist to fist.
