Daniel Cormier actually isn't that short, he's the same height as Rashad Evans.

    And Jon Jones wasn't able to rag doll / finish Rashad..

    not saying he didn't dominate that fight...

    but this idea that Daniel Cormier is too short, or that he's going to get manhandled by Jon Jones is pretty fantastic. I'm not using MMA math here, I'm just using common sense. I think a lot of you are under the impression that DC is a midget when he's far from it.

    Wouldn't be shocked to see a cut caused by a headbutt in this fight.

    He's a little bit shorter. Rashad is 5'11 or at least legit 5'10 -5'11 Cormeir looks like he's 5'9 is some pics like when he was fighting 5'8 Monson and he looks shorter than Rashad next to Jones and he has shorter arms

    DC isn't a midget he was just a midget at HW and is very short at LHW 5'9 is like the average height in the US

    Rashad is a small LHW and could easily make MW.

    Saying that Cormier is the same height is arguing that he is short.

    Olympic stats say 5'11" for DC, as does UFC page. Same as Rashad. lol. I could see UFC getting it wrong, but Olympic Commission? Not as likely.

    always thought Rashad is taller.

    Cormier looks more like 5'10. there's a pic with Khabib somewhere.

    Yeah i wouldnt call 5'11 short. Compared to Jones hes short i suppose.

    But yeah i have no sympathy for "short" fighters because its all relative. Dont want to give up a reach advantage, than get in shape and move down a class.

    height wont matter

    if he's tall enough for the HW division he is fine for the LHW

    That's another good point, he's fought guys who were bigger than Jon Jones

    the point of this thread wasnt whether or not Rashad was "short" for a LHW, but rather the fact that Jon Jones wasn't able to ragdoll Rashad, or really take him down, so I don't know where these people get off saying he's going to be able to do any better at manhandling or dominating DC in wrestling

    I'd guess DC is more 5'9 based on pictures.

    5'9"? Where do you guys come up with these bullshit f'ing numbers? Hes not 5'9 just because you cant judge distance in a photo, and hes not 5'9" just because you want him to be.

    Every single thread about height goes exactly the same, short fans say fighters are about 2 inches shorter then they actually are because it makes them feel less insecure. Guess what? There are plenty of good short fighters to be fans of without making up fighters heights.

    Rashad has been called the tallest 5'11 guy ever and its true. He didnt look dwarfed by Davis at all.

    I heard Jones height & 13" reach advantage won't matter.

    Yeah the Olympic stats are just as wrong Kurt Angle was listed at 6'2 at the Olympics and he said himself they gave everyone 2 inches extra in height and Kurt Angle is in reality 5'11 or 5'10
