    Stipe has the longest reach out of the top 10 heavyweights tied with Overeem.

    That's not freakish but, for some reason, I always looked at Stipe as a bit "stumpy", for want of a better word. Certainly didn't think he had a longer reach than Browne or JDS

    6'4" Francis Ngannou is only an inch behind 7' Struve in the reach department with 83" to Struves 84". That's a bit freaky

    no it's retarded, this could have been interesting but fuck you if I'm going to start converting inches and shit to actually mean something to me, just here: height 5'11 reach 71" means nothing to me in the metric system it would be height 180cm reach 180cm there you go, fuck off! :mad:

    Should be arm length stat also as some guys are very broad shouldered which somewhat skews the measurement. Its not so much a reach measure as it is a wingspan measure.

    Yes true. However, if you throw a jab your shoulders add an inch or two to your reach since you are turning your body. I think you don't just punch with your arms, you rotate your shoulders when you throw a punch.
