    Connor is praised and he is 5'9 with a 6'2 wingspan.

    Here's some "short" NBA players w top wingpan, to compare

    Reggie Jackon 6'3 w/ 5'11 wingpan
    Rajon Rondo 6'1 w/ 6'9 wingspan
    Donovan Mitchell 6''3 w/ 6'10 wingpan

    Don't remember numbers, but besides obvious (Jones, Struve) there are some fighters with serious wingspans:

    Uriah Hall
    GSP
    Lesnar

    Kevin Lee apparently has the longest reach in proportion to his height in the ufc.

    5'9" with 6'5" reach

    Dont have specific measurements but I feel certain Artem Lobov has to be near the top

    Not in the ufc but I remember seeing Fedor walk right in front of me and his arms were long AF.

    I think it’s measured differently between each sport. MMA might be knuckle to knuckle

    I think Jones has longer reach. Wingspan - dunno. Both are very tall, but Struve is probably a head above him

    Kevin Lee is definitely the craziest, 5'8 with a 6'4 wingspan.

    8'6". each arm is probably the length of Lobov's whole reach.
