    Where does UFC get there fighter height info from
    since I know they billed Jodie Esquibel at 5'3" at
    the Fight Night event in Poland which wasn't correct
    do to the fact she actually is 5'1" or where they bill
    Joanna at 5'6" while she is actually 5'7".

    The guy responsible for screen graphics just makes a good guess. Sometimes he shows up to work drunk.

    I'm guessing it's self-reported.

    From the fighters themselves. That's why I've already said everyone gives themselves an inch or 2.

    i believe the ufc has a part of the company that creates appearances for fighters and creates their stats like reach, height and weight.

    and then tells the fighters to go look like what the company created for them to look like.

    They just make that shit up brah.

    I can't even COUNT the amount of times I've seen fighters height & reach change over the years.

    It's laughable.

    i believe the official fighter height and weight come straight from the ufc's ass.

    Carwin pioneered cutting height. He wrote the bro-science chapter on it.
