    they have to work so much harder to compensate for lack of height and reach. Look at a guy like Edgar basically he needs to be so much better than his opponent to be competitive on the feet, enve another manlet like Jose Aldo can flat out make him look bad.

    Basically in any remotely even skilled match, the taller guy smokes the shorter guy

    Tell that to Hunt, Mike Tyson or Fedor. They might disagree.

    exceptions that prove the rule

    look at TAM a bunch of 5ft3 guys that couldnt beat their 5ft8 overlod till another 5ft8 guy came along

    that's the ultimate manlet fairy tale right there

    Cain
    DC
    Romero
    Woodley
    Hendricks
    RDA
    Frankie
    Mouse
    Tate
    etc.

    have all beaten ELITE fighters clearly taller than them.

    ...what the listed ones all share is wrestling, obviously.

    Hugging is the GOAT martial art for shorties (and in general).

    Yeah I know, also Tyson, Hunt, Lineker, Shevchenko etc. but I always rep Hugging.

    You gotta hand it to them, cause they can't reach!

    height matters less for LHW and HW since there the taller guys tend to be much less athletic. But at LW/FW it matters more.

    Its more difficult for BW to compete with FW and FW with LW than higher waits

    The thread is about manlets and you bring up three average-above avg fighters. Manlet is based on height, not comparative height with some weight class

    I didnt bring anyone up. The quote about Fedor and the other is from someone else.

    Also, I misread you. I thought you meant average as FIGHTERS, not their size. Apologies.

    WTF does that mean. I read it three times. None of they guys are short. Hunt and Fedor are monsters.

    That guy was clearly replying to this from the OP and not just the title.
