    What do you think the average height and weight is for a fighter by weight class? I know they had a chart a few years ago, but it was only height and reach.

    125: 5'2 to 5'6, 140
    135- 5'4 to 5'8 150
    145 5'6 to 5'10 165
    155 5'8 to 6' 170-180
    170 5'10 to 6'1 180-195
    185 6 to 6'2 195-210
    205 6'2 to 6'4 210-230
    265 6'3 to 6'6+ 230-280

    What is ideal build by weight class?

    You guys are overestimating weight.

    The only ideal is what works for each individual.

    With that said, cutting 30lbs doesn't sound ideal to me... Glad rda just moved up

    And really, no fighter really did poorly after they moved up. They always talk about how good they feel

    You're way over estimating reach. There are only maybe 10 people in the sport that have a reach of 80"+, so there is no way any weightclass averages 80".

    For example, Sherdog's top 15 at HW:
    Stipe Miocic: 6'4" - 246lbs - 80"
    Alistair Overeem: 6'4" - 253lbs - 80"
    Fabricio Werdum: 6'4"- 239lbs - 77"
    Cain Velasquez: 6'1" - 242lbs - 77"
    Junior Dos Santos: 6'4" - 245lbs - 77"
    Ben Rothwell: 6'4" - 265+lbs - 80"
    Josh Barnett: 6'3" - 256lbs - 77"
    Francis Ngannou: 6'4" - 253lbs - 83"
    Vitaly Minakov: 6'2" - 260lbs - 78"
    Mark Hunt: 5'10" - 265+lbs - 74"
    Blagoy Ivanov: 5'11" - 251lbs - 73"
    Cheick Kongo: 6'4" - 244lbs - 81"
    Derrick Lewis: 6'3" - 265+lbs - 79"
    Marcin Tybura: 6'3" - 243lbs - 78"
    Alexander Volkov: 6'7" - 251lbs - 81"

    Average: 6'3" - 250lbs - 78"
