Shane Carwin

They have Carwin listed at 6' 5", and Frank Mir listed at 6' 3". I though for sure that Mir would have a height advantage over Carwin, but apparently not.

 

Is this a typo? GG looked taller than Carwin in their fight. Am I the only one who is surprised by this?!?!

6'2" looks about right... Here are some comparison pics... You be the judge.

 

Carwin and Napoa... Gabe is listed at 6'2"

With Herb Dean... Herb is listed at 6'1"

Standing with Bobby Lashley, who is clearly taller and is listed at 6'3"

6'5"... No way in hell. My guess is 6'0" or maybe 6'2" at the most.

nah... he's 6"2. I still don't get why organisations do this sh*t. Show his real height ffs...

 

The same reason they used to do it on my football rosters. It's a ploy to get in your opponents head, I am 6'3" 240lbs, my roster size was 6'4" 260. It's just what you do. Plus it awes spectators. Since he was being marketed as "the guy who's as big as Lesnar."

Yes indeed. Around October of last year was when his height mysteriously increased on the UFC web site. But who knows, doesn't everyone grow three inches in their 30s?
