He actually looks smaller than I expected. I thought he was like 6'5 but he only looks 3.5- 4 inches taller than the 5'10 renzo there.
yea, i heard roger is really big but i dont think this photo is a good example to show that hes bigger then expected
he looks pretty skinny, and not too much taller then renzo..who i heard isnt that big himself.
but yea, i was just watching shinya aoki fight roger, and roger was like 2x his size...
Yeah, I agree that this picture isn't a great example of how big Roger is, but it's a perfect example of how metrosexual he is. Case proven.
I've seen him in real life, he's a monster.
He's about 6'5" tall. I've stood next to him at the Worlds last year. He's very tall but not thick.
Pot, meet Kettle. :icon_chee
roger is abig dude, and he looks broad shouldered there as well.
rockin the man-bag, or the "murse" if you will.

I think this is the right video....it looks like he's rolling with hobbits in this seminar.
lol I love watching big names in the sport roll with really experienced no names. It seems that the big names have white clean as hell gis, and then the experienced guys have like a yellow coloured gi that looks untidy haha.
thats what she said @ thread title
roger is not bigger than say pe de pano or werdum or even gonzaga. Actually me might be lighter than them while being the same height.
i would say he's definitely lighter than all of them
He's pretty tall (6'4), but there are guys who are bigger at the academy, as he isn't hugely muscular. For example, there's a really built blue belt who is around the same height, who Roger has rolled with a few times before (I think mainly because that blue belt finds it difficult to get training partners around his size).
big mac and rafael loftavo both weigh more than him. Roger fights at SUPER HEAVY.. people forget that there is a whole weight class above him.. SUPER SUPER HEAVYWEIGHT.
My instructor trained with him, and said he is a monster. This proves it.
Those are hobbits you insensitive prick! Don't diss Gracie-Barra Middle-Earth
i dont think lovarto weighs more then roger. He just did that weight bracket at the mundials last year because it was his best chance to win gold. I doubt he would have won in the other brackets.
