    Why do the height measurements of fighters change over time or are clearly inaccurate when for example facing a fighter who should be taller/smaller? It’s not difficult for a big organisation to accurately measure fighters is it?

    Apparently it is.

    Aside from Carwin, I have seen both Diaz bros, as well as Cerrone go from 6'1" down to 6' even. Reaches on fighters also tend to change.

    It's an old wrestling trick.....back in amateur wrestling days we did it all...weight cutting, height cutting....I even did some dick cutting (but I'm a sherdogger so I had enough to spare)

    Eventually though it catches up with your body

    No sport really has official heights. There's always an inch or 2 added to the short basketball and hockey players on the stat sheets

    Some of them stand on their tippy toes while the UFC is measuring them. Mighty Mouse is really 4'10.

    Some fighters stick the excess height Carwin cuts into their feet to make them taller.

    True story.
