    I don't know where are you getting all these info

    There are only three types of body ( according to somatotype taxonomy)

    Echomorph Lean and long, ectomorphs have difficulty building muscle. ( Diaz Brother, Anderson SIlva, Struve)

    Endomorph Big with high body fat, often pear-shaped, endomorphs have a high tendency to store body fat. ( Roy Nelson, Daniel Cormier, Mark Hunt )

    Mesomorph Muscular and well-built, mesomorphs have a high metabolism and responsive muscle cells. ( Romero, Overeem & Sage)

    Endomorphs, in shape are wide, thick, stocky and have big lower bodies. In weight class format they don't typically excel, but naturally they are the most fit for battle in a primitive environment as even the Manlets can be a natural 200 pounder.

    Shogun, Chuck, Rampage, Carwin, Hunt, all fit this Body Type.

    I would say Liddell is long limbed rather than average joe

    Long reach while being coordinated is a huge advantage.

    Well I have no qualification in Anthropometry, But that one was the only Taxonomy ever made to classify Human Body. I know that theory got debunked later. But still that was the only taxonomy ever designed for Human body classification.

    Apart from that one I don't know any of the other available for further classification.
