    Sometimes commentators will say he has a "Significant reach advantage" or "Significant height advantage" or "Significant height and reach advantage."

    My Q is how much of an advantage is significant? Is it 2 inches? In ufc if it's a 2 inch difference it is virtually identical. So like 5 inches? Would it be the same for height? Or more? Less?

    2 inches for little people is more significant than big people

    I've been telling women that 3 inches is significant for years now.
