    This is just my guess:

    Featherweight:
    -Conor McGregor
    Height 5 ft 9 in (1.75 m)
    Reach 74.0 in (188 cm)

    Middleweight:
    -Uriah Hall
    6 ft 0 in (1.83 m)
    Reach 80 in (203.2 cm)

    Light Heavy Weight:
    -Jon Jones
    Height 6 ft 4 in (193 cm)
    Reach 84.5 in (215 cm)

    These were the only ones that were blaring to me.

    I was thinking freaking being disproportionate.

    Tyrone Woodley is like 5'8" with a really healthy 74" reach.

    Very deceptive when his ability to cover distance is thrown in.

    McGregor isn't that long for his weight at all, I don't think. Pretty sure Holloway outdoes him.

    Edit: Not to a freakish extent, is what I mean.
