    hahahaha sure thing....and you sound like someone with really low self esteem. height doesn't make you an alpha male...just so you know.

    Height doesn't make you an alpha male. Height makes you an actual male. Only women are short.

    Control yourself woman.

    People love to post fighters that are "looking jacked, solid, thick, etc." so i'm going to say that one. Hundreds of sherdog posts can't be wrong.

    Cormier tyson and fedor are the outliers in the variable becUse they used height disadvantage to their own advantage. You can basically only count on one hand who made being shorter than average a weapon. So with that being said you have to ride the stats and say that being taller is better on average.

    I think all that matters how well you know how to fight with your own frame. Being tall has it's advantages, but it also has plenty of weaknesses. Same as being short.

    But the simple recipe is. If you're short(er) cut down to the weight class that you belong in, that includes muscles. Yes believe it or not you can cut muscle mass and still be fit.

    E.g. Romero could lay off the weight lifting, increase the cardio, and likely make 170, with a better gas tank, if he wanted to of course.

    A lot of it depends on your work out regiment, more than your physical height, with weight classes being a thing.

    Okay, if this is really you, you're somewhat skinny.

    Lol I'm afraid of a stiff breeze. I wear big heavy boots to weigh me down, so I'm good.
    It'd be worse if I hit my actual height. 6'7" and 155 would be a freak show. Dirty crooked metal spine. :(

    I don't know why people let their height bother them so much. There are much bigger things they should worry about such as being fat and stupid.

    The best thing you can be is a jacked up 230 pounder with above avg height and cut weight to 185 and fight the tall skinny and the short jacked guys.

    6'6 at lightweight would get their legs broke like Corey Hill.

    Tall and skinny. I think there's a reason Anderson Silva and Jon Jones did so well... (in the ring that is).

    I remember Teddy Atlas said he thought basketball players would make better fighters than football players because of their lanky physiques. He said it in a video game commentary (Fight Night) but their commentary is based off of their thoughts, and the man's a fight expert.
