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.
