    I'm almost always the smallest guy in the gym. Tapping out big dudes is a point of principle by now.

    I'm thinking the average is driven up because of the bigger weight classes. What's the average for WEC?

    I'm 5' 11" but according to my tailor I have the reach of a 6' 3" man. Yup fear the ape arms! It does seem that most fighters are pretty tall these days. 6' 1" seems almost minimum.

    Also: +1 to what FriendlyFire said.

    Guys who are about 5'8 tend to put themselves at 5'10.
    Happens all the time. The taller guys tend to be more honest though
    5'11 can be translated into 6', or just under 6'.

    I'm 5'9 - that's average here. I'm no super athlete and I don't give a **** about what the UFC average is.

    I was a little shocked. Sure, he changed sides quickly, but I guess even a dog can realize it has more in common with the wolf than with the shephard.

    I give him the names of some BJJ schools in the area, and we go our separate ways.
