    Wherever you look, he has a different height. Just how tall is Leon Scott?

    I think he might be a legit 6'1". Looked taller than Cowboy at both face offs and in the cage. Absolutely dwarfed 5'8" RDA and was clearly taller than 5'11" Usman.

    Some fighters cut height to make weight.
    It's safer.

    He is as tall as he needs to be for the commentators narrative to make sense.

    6'2 doesn't sound right. But, I haven't seen many of his fights.

    Yeah I would guess 6'1". He looks big for the weight class. Don't understand how the UFC had him at 5'10" in that one fight, usually they exaggerate height if anything.

    He's using the tried and true Shane Carwin height cutting method

    After watching this sport for many years i have come to the conclusion that these guys are generally shorter than their listed height. Even the biggest shitkickers in the world are embarassed about their lack of height. tsk tsk.

    I imageine 6', 6'1 is closer to correct. The 5'10 was probably a graphic mistake (forgot to change template it was copied from).
