    I think it's like how you can put any height and weight on your driver's license and nobody gives a shit.

    If you think the height stats are bullshit, do you really think Jon Jones has a longer reach than Stefan Struve? The reach stats are that bullshit times 10.

    Do you think they measure every fighter before a bout, or they just have a form that fighters fill in....

    Barry Bonds used PEDs and his skull grew.

    Carwin used PEDs and he got taller.

    Is normal.

    Does it really fucking matter?

    “I would’ve enjoyed this, but ya know, that height discrepancy really bothered me.”

    Noticed that. Figured the discrepancy comes from statpadding and then honesty
