    What disgusts me is not that you know of these guys, quite the contrary.

    But fighting at 170lbs when you are 7 feet tall? Thats sickening.

    Currently in UFC? Probably Volkov, honorable mention to Spitz and Browne
    Lol most of these are totally wrong, no way someone is 7ft and cuts to 170

    If you google Schilt's reach, it's listed as 88". That's crazy.

    Stats seem squirrely. I checked on Bryson McCarter and he's not even close to 7'0. Probably a typo on tapology.

    Maybe you should checkout more then the UFC and Bellator.. there are a few who are fighting in regionals that are bigger then 6ft 8in, fighting at lower weight classes.

    Can't be this guy, then. He's listed at 6'0 here and looks it. Is there another Bryson Mccarter?

    Odd. This is definitely the guy mistakenly referred to on tapology as 7'0, given that the opponent is listed too.

    Are you sure the guy you saw was Mccarter/even a WW? I struggle to comprehend how a 6'10 guy could make 170.

    Are you sure you have the right guy? You struggle because you may not grasp dif body types. There are kids 6ft 10in playing basketball who weigh similar, in hs and college.

    I am pretty sure yeah.

    Last opponent: Julius Bowling. The same opponent in the video.

    Also, being able to play basketball as a complete skeleton is possible (and even then being 6'10 at that weight is very rare). Fighting is a different proposition.

    No, there isn't, what's your evidence?

    Maybe you should check your facts beyond tapology stats..
