    Let's try to imagine a scenario where manlets rule over every weight class in the UFC. Pick the shortest guy with a realistic chance of being champ of their division.

    125 and 135- already ruled by 5'4 Cejudo, though it can get even shorter with 5'3 Lineker.
    145- Volkanovski at 5'6
    155- All the top contenders are within an inch of each other except for Tony. Current champ is the best choice here.
    170- Tyron claims 5'9 but we all know he's 5'7. And he's still "in the mix". So I'll go with him.
    185- Deron Winn (whose height seems to shrink every time he's mentioned) is the clear winner here. But 5'8 Kelvin is also suitable pick.
    205- No one's beating Jones so it doesnt matter. And the only guys with a chance are all just as tall.
    HW- Cormier, duh.

    Ok, there ya go folks. The All-Manlet All Stars. If you can name any contenders who are shorter (with a reasonable chance to win the title) please share.

    You don't have to imagine it that's been the general trend in the history of MMA.

    There was that period recently when every champ was under 6 feet except for Jones. But Izzy and Stipe put an end to that.

    Not too likely but Latifi has just moved up to HW and he is basically a manlet at 5'9.

    Yeah, I would have picked him if Cormier was retired but they're the same height.

    virtually identical. Wiki and google just list published heights, which as we all know can be way off.

    Lineker isn't in the UFC anymore, so it ain't getting any shorter

    When Conor was LW champ he was the manlet of the division as champ.

    I think he saves money by buying fat kids clothes though, so every cloud has a silver lining.

    Yeah I get that they took issue with his weight issues and pulling out of some fights, but I didn't think they'd actually cut him.

    Pretty much the same height but Latifi eyes are higher. I view eyes as true height measurement.
