    Virtually zero. Could this be a disadvantage?
    I have a 6'3 co-worker but weights 175. As you can imagine he's very very skinny but he's healthy and exercise everyday. He might me able to make 155 with diet and sauna. There are a lot of guys like this don't tell me this is unusual, my guess is that this body composition is not optimal for fighting?

    What's your co workers hair line like though?

    Fighter worthy?

    There was a fighter who was 6'4 160lbs and fought at 155. I forgot his name but he was on the TUF season that Nate Diaz was on and was the first fighter that snapped his leg in the octagon

    Edit: His name is Corey Hill

    Taffy from ClayFighter has gotta be well over 6ft with good posture. Couldn’t see him weighing much either.
