    UFC's fighters heights are inflated.

    Do you honestly care about this? Every professional league has incorrect heights/weights on their roster. Hell when I played high school football/basketball we lied about all our physical stats to psyche out our opponents.

    It doesn't matter though. Once the cage closes your billed height/reach can't help you.

    Why do some fighters lie about height? When you're in the higher weight classes, doesn't it make you look like a better fighter if you win while undersized?

    Because sherdog makes fun of manlets, they try to make them a little bigger.

    More ink was used on Brocks chest dick than Cody’s entire body.

    You can't trust fighters or the UFC to give out correct heights...but I wouldn't think a "hook-up hoe" is any more reliable. Sort of like relying on an ex to give you a letter of recommendation.

    Women are terrible at judging height. They will either judge you very short or very tall.

    So, you're claiming TJ Dillashaw is more like 5'-5'1?


    Kind of silly if you believe any of that. 5'5-5'6? Sure. 5'1? C'mon, you boners aren't that stupid.

    I'm glad you decided not to ignore me after all.

    And good one :)
    I just know where the obsession of people about others' height comes from

    4'11 Urijah next to 4'10 Chad and 5' TJ and 4'8 Joey B

    Castillo is listed at 5'9. Clearly he's about 5'3 max.
