    Generally, shorter fighters tend to be wrestlers. How many successful striking specialist have been short or have shorter reach?

    Note: I am not including fighters who use their wrestling to setup their strikes.
    So the following are not applicable
    - Demetrious Johnson
    - Frankie Edgar
    - Kelvin Gastelum
    - Georges St. Pierre


    1. Lineker
    - Lineker is a pretty small guy even for the Bantamweight division, yet he relies a lot on closing distance and boxing with his opponents. He has found success due to his incredible chin and solid power.

    2. Cody Garbrant
    - Cody isn't short for his division, but his reach is 64.8, which is a pretty small reach for his division. He makes up for this by incorporating close range hooks and head movement, as well as great balance on his strikes.

    Chad Mendes- Has good K.O's on his record and he even hit Conor with some good shots despite Conor's long reach

    Forsure Mike Tyson at HW. Everyone had a longer reach than him, he was built like a tank
