Hi guys. I'm new on this forums and I have a quick question. I live in a foreigner country and I am #1 in a low devision in my city. There's a new club intersted in me and take me to another level. I was just wondering if the UFC fighters heights are accurate?Because I'm 6'1.5 and I see most of them are 6'3 giants and stuffs and I fear that if this new level I'm going to is the kinda like UFC and I'll be drawfed(I know height is not everything) I aslo checked Frank Mir website and he says he's 6'1 but UFC has him as 6'3?

thx anyways

Your weight class was a pretty important detail you didn't mention.Mir is definitely taller than 6'1 as well

yeah, mir is about 6'3" if not 6'4".

6'1.5, depending on your build, could potentially be fine in any weight class. i mean, i could say probably not heavyweight, and i could say probably not featherweight, but nothing between 145 and 265 could be absolutely ruled out for sure depending on your build.

is this a serious question? this seems like a thing you'd know if you were actually training to be a fighter.

As has been said before, body type matters a lot for whatever weight you'd be fighting at.

I mean if you look at people who are 5'10 or 5'11, you've got people like Kenny Florian and Evan Dunham who fight at Lightweight, Wanderlei at MW/LHW and then you've got Pat Barry and Mark Hunt at HW.
