How tall is Bob Sapp

Bob Sapp's Height

6ft 4.25in (194 cm)

American MMA Fighter and Actor popping up in The Longest Yard and Elektra. Site visitor Jason found the quote from an ESPN chat where he said: "I'm really 6'4". Or 6'.334" actually. My wing span or reach is as long as someone who is 7' tall. My wing span is 212. So it throws people off when they talk about my height.". Hmm, on nfl he is listed 6ft 4. The '6.334 actually' might mean just that (6ft and 0.334*12, or 4 inches). Not entirely sure if that's what he was meaning, but to me its what his nfl listing was. The 6ft 7 listing originates from his 200cm listings on fighting sites.

Overeem 6ft3
Cain 6ft0.5
Arlovski 6ft3.5 (he is listed as this on Wikipedia)
Jones 6ft3.5
Browne 6ft5.5
Sapp 6ft4.25-6ft4.5
Brock 6ft2.25

--------------

Try using actual evidence man or else you just come across as a short dude whos jealous of the big guys. Arlovski and Overeem are 6'3 I can believe that, but Jon Jones is obviously taller than Arlovski by more than an inch. The guy is a legit 6'4 dude. Cain is half an inch shorter than what I said he is? Well, how do you figure that out? Unless you have a measure of him there is no way of knowing. These '05 inches you claim are obviously fake and based on nothing.
Try giving reasons next time man, or else my listings stands.

Overeem is 6'3.5 or less, probably less.
Stipe is a legit 6'4
JDS is 6'3, shorter than Overeem.
Cain is 6'1 and a strong one at that, maybe taller (DONT USE THE RONALDO PIC, RONALDO IS WEARING CLEATS AND EVERY TIME HE TAKES PICTURES, HE STANDS ON HIS TOES). Shown by all his pics with 5'10 DC, shown in his pics with Rogan who is 5'7. I know Rogan aint that tall because Ive seen the dude, the rest you can judge from the right pics.
Arlovski is 6'4
Jone Jones is definitely taller than 6'4.
Browne is definitely 6'6 or a bit more.
and Bob Sapp is 6'4 as he himself admitted.
Brock, from all the pictures, is really 6'3 or a shade under, which you cant tell.

If he's an inch taller than Jon Jones, shouldn't Sapp be 6ft4.5?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Nov/16
He's like Michael Clark Duncan. His monstrous bulk adds to the illusion of more height.
Ice said on 18/Nov/16
He looks too damn tall to be under 194 cm .

Akebono,shirota,bob.
shirota is japanese food fighter 195cm.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 15/Nov/16
I'm not sure if he means that he's 6'4" or 6'3 3/4" from the quote, it's possible he was trying to say that he was the latter...
Editor Rob: Matthew, I'm still not entirely sure which version he meant.

6ft 3.75 is a possibility
travis said on 15/Nov/16
he the same as jones 6'4- 6'4 1/2
Crane said on 10/Nov/16
He looked around an inch taller than Jones. Definitely a true 6'4, can pass for being a 6'4.25.
Crane said on 8/Nov/16
Agreed with the list. He got the look.
S.J.H said on 2/Oct/16
I believe bob sapp own claim at 6'3-3/4 or 6'4 much honest than an upgrade of 6'4.25-6'5 everywhere listed him
andreea said on 1/Oct/16
Rob, what do you think is sapp height in CM exactly 194 cm or 194.5?
Brandon said on 9/Sep/16
Maybe the 334 is him saying 6'3" 3/4 as his height. Either way he is definitely a 6'4" guy whether he's a little over or a little under.

how tall jones looks close to sapp?
Editor Rob: wouldn't say Sapp looked that much taller, considering the camera nearer Sapp there.
leoberg124 said on 16/Feb/16
Rob, if Sapp 6'4.25" how is real Nortje tall? In this video he looks 6'7.5". Or no?
Click Here
Editor Rob: yeah he could be about 3 inch taller, or more if he has extra 'hidden height', which comes out if you asked him to stand tall.
leoberg124 said on 12/Feb/16
Look this fight Click Here Nakasako is 6' 3" Sapp looks m may 1,5 in taller.
Oanh said on 3/Jan/16
Given that Bob admits to being 6'4", Rob, what do you think is Akebono's height? I'm sure you've seen photos of him with Bob.
I'd say Akebono is 6'7" tops.
Editor Rob: yeah he probably measures around 6ft 7ish, he could look near that with big show too
James B said on 24/Dec/15
Sapp does not look 194cm given that tensi is 6'5 range
Ice said on 16/Dec/15
ROB 196 cm right out of bed for Sapp ?
Editor Rob: he might be close to 6ft 5 first thing
Ice said on 7/Nov/15
ROB what would you estimate Overeems height to be ? He looked like 189 - 190 cm next to Sapp , and solid 190 cm next to Lesnar .
Editor Rob: certainly his 6ft 4 and 5 descriptions in the past seem a bit much, 6ft 3 is possible, although at times you'd say a weak 6ft 3
Ice said on 1/Oct/15
ROB do you think that Alexander Gustafssons 6'5 listing is legit ? He himself claims 6'3 but its obvious that hes taller than that
[Editor Rob: he can look similar range as Jones]
Ice said on 29/Sep/15
he looked huge next to Overeem . Like 196 cm minimum . He was once listed as 200 cm back in his Pride days , a 194 cm guy can pull off to look 200 cm to a lot of people , as specially small japanese folks . But once they see a legit 200 cm guy they notice just how massive that height is

6'6" or 6'7" Tensai towered over Bob Sapp.

Here you have Jon jones, Alex E, Fedor E, Sapp & Alex Gustafsson.
This pic shows how overlisted Alex E is next to Jon Jones :p Sapp is standing barefoot next to Alex Gustafsson(who is listed at 6'5).. Oddly enough he always states that he is 6'3 himself :p But being from Sweden like myself, maybe he doesn't really know his exact height in feet and inches.. I've never heard him say what he is in Cm. I don't think he is 6'5 but could be 6'4 or close to it. He is a hair taller than Jon Jones that claims 6'4.
gsbr said on 23/Feb/13
At the Conan premiere, Sapp appeared to be clearly taller than the 6'4" Jason Momoa. So unless that was due to the angle of the pictures, Sapp stands over the 6'4" range or Momoa is under 6'4".
Blah said on 4/Feb/13
I know Bob Sapp personally, and I believe what was meant is 6' 3'' & 3/4 inches. Bob is a very nice, intelligent man and he is truly a huge man. Many people would guess 6'6'' because he is a end of the day 6'3'' & 3/4. Most people his height and size could easily claim 6'5 or 6'6'' and get away with it. Bob is so large he does not care about a few CM, he's plenty tall and quite massive in person.

0:12 in that video is from the behind the scenes video you posted Vegas. In your video I would say they are pretty much even, but in the promo overeem is taller. Overeem is much more noticable taller than brock when they are in shoes(press conferance face-offs). I was the same when overeem faced off with dos santos(both in shoes). From barefoot pics dos santos is a little taller than brock. Despite looking taller with shoes on I think that overeem and dos santos is pretty much even in height.. MAYBE overeem is a smidge taller. I don't think overeem is taller than legit 6'3 and brock ain't over 6'2. Dos santos I'd give right in the middle 6'2.5

Bob Sapp is truly a 'Beast.' I'd give him 6'6" any day. He TOWERS over Overeem, and Overeem towers over Brock
____________

no way overeem is 6'5, he did not tower over brock, both men barefoot Click Here sapp himself looked quite a bit shorter than ~6'8 akebono

sapp has been terrible for years
Gramps said on 2/Jan/13
Bob Sapp is truly a 'Beast.' I'd give him 6'6" any day. He TOWERS over Overeem, and Overeem towers over Brock, JDS and other big men. If Overeem isn't 6'5", he's at LEAST 6'4.5", but Sapp looks much taller.
mId said on 2/Jan/13
6'4 seems right.. he had half an inch on 6'3.5 listed remy bonjaski after a fight when they hugged it out in the ring(barefooted).
mId said on 2/Jan/13
Overeem was shorter than listed everywhere from fights to official website 192 cm Remy Bonjaski in their K-1 fight. The thing is though.. If overeem is 6'2-6'3 alot of MMA fighters are coming down big-time because he is one of the tallest out there if you don't count extremely tall people. He's taller than Dos Santos for example.. and he's listed.. hehe, well actually both him and Cain got bumped up one inch in their last fight. Dos Santos went from 6'3 to 6'4 and Cain from 6'1 to 6'2.. funny thing though.. Cain is way shorter than 6'1-laser-measured C Ronaldo(And that's adding the hair).
Gramps said on 2/Jan/13
Just watched Sapp in a YouTube video participating in a recent arm wrestling tournament on Japanese TV against 6'5" Alistair Overeem, and Sapp looked 1-2" taller, both wearing sneakers.
[Editor Rob: I think it's safe to say that Overeem isn't anywhere near 6ft 5]

Look at 21:37 in the video.. he's alot taller than listed/claim 6'5 overeem. Overeem is taller than lesnar.

Rob when he said 6'.334,did he mean 6'3.3/4.He definitely looks 6'4 though.
[Editor Rob: yes it's a possibility he meant that aswell.]
daminator47 said on 8/Nov/11
and that make hoost(cream costume) and le banner at 6'1"...impossible or sapp is a true 6'4"
Vegas said on 31/Oct/11
taller than la banner in this shot, la banner in grey jacket and jeans Click Here
daminator47 said on 28/Oct/11
same height as jerome le banner when he met him. So, I would say 6'3" for sapp is correct.
SolidSnake said on 5/Mar/11
yeh but 475 is impossible. Nearly as much as the Big Show.
MR. Handsome said on 13/Dec/10
Im 6'2"+ i met Bob Sapp, we were the same height however i was wearing brown leather high quality dress shoes, i think the heel is 1 inch and the sole in the shoe is a half inch so i stood 6'3.50" i asked him how tall he is and he said 6'3" but i shrank an inch, i asked him when, and he said 28. i doubt Sapp would downgrade his height because on a qeustionnaire he said as advice if someone wants something from you and is bigger and stronger then you either give it to them or run, that to me sounds like something a guy would say who is proud of his size. anyway Bob Sapp isn't a fairy He's ah Man ah Big Strong Man...
Clay said on 4/Dec/10
Thats a bit harsh Dan. Sandler can look 5'10''. You said Mike Tyson was 5'9 and he turned out to be a good 5'10....

I went to high school with Bob Sapp and he use to pick me up like a football and run with me down the hall way like I was a feather. He was huge back then (I thought he was taller then that) and he had to have his shoes specially made. He was a very funny and nice guy.
Chad said on 13/Sep/07
I'm 6'2 and he was at least a couple of inches taller than me in high school
ed said on 25/Jul/07
If the editor can tell me how to upload a picture, then i can show just how tall Remy Bonjasky is. I know him and have got some pics off us together. Now i'm just a little over 6'3" barefoot and Remy is slightly taller than me, so he's about 6'4". Bob Sapp on the other hand is slightly taller as Remy so he's about 6'4.5". Just tell me how to post a picture, because i don't know how and i'll show you.
Viper said on 23/May/07
And for his combine measurment, Ive seen a couple of faulty measurements that were not accurate at all actually.
Jason said on 22/May/07
Exactly, albi. I think the 190cm listing is the one...
albi said on 22/May/07
To me he looks no more than 2cm taller than 189 Ernesto Hoost (although Hoost is pretty skinny). In fact, I thought they were about the same height. He just does not tower the opponents, so I give him 190 at most. Which makes Fishburne about 180, too, since Sapp looks like having about 13cm over Fishburne, but Sapp's shoes in the photo were HUGE!

Akebono is 6'6'' or more... 6 ft 4.25 in for Sapp seems right

ya hes 6 5 tops. he got kicked outa nfl for steroid usage. he does weight 350 tho. warren sapp was 6 3 when he was in college he is 6 2 now tho. k1 lists em as 6 9 which is ridiculouss but a w e sells tickets i guess.

Sapp said he was 6' 3 & 3/4"....it's not complicated.
Viper said on 13/Mar/07
Well, there is a good deal of evidence that shows him at 6-3 or marginally under.
Jase said on 13/Mar/07
He's a solid 6'4". I've seen him at sea-tac airport w/o shoes. My friends and I thought he was taller though (we were guessing 6'6"), because he ducked his head when he walked through the metal detector. But he's at least 6'4", easy.
bushido said on 9/Feb/07
@wolverinejoe80:
sapp isn't in that picture you've sent
the three black guys are remy bonjasky ernesto hoost and gary goodridge
Jason said on 26/Dec/06
Not that familiar with his height, what is he? 6'0'' or 5'11''? The dude in the pics is just on higher ground or something in the Fishburne pic cuz if he isn't then Sapp is 6'7'' and we know that is far from being true.
Jason said on 24/Dec/06
Not sure how honest he was even with his statement about his real height/weight because he also says he's really 350lbs and I've seen him weigh-in at 140kg exactly and that's only 310.
Editor Rob said on 22/Dec/06
He's got a drafted height:
"Bob Sapp, 6-4 3/8", so rounded down...
J-Dog said on 19/Dec/06
Bob Sapp said he was 6'4" on PrideFC Armed and Ready Card/DVD. Not only that but he looks 2" inches taller than Maurice Smith. 6'4" sounds about right.
Jason said on 26/Oct/06
I would say 6'3'', too. I've heard as low as 6'2''.
Viper652 said on 24/Oct/06
Jason, what do you peg Sapp at? I think hes 6-3 or marginally over that mark.
Viper652 said on 23/Sep/06
Some of these Bob Sapp videos on youtube are hillarious.
Jason said on 16/Sep/06
They gave Max Starx a full inch. He was measured at 6'7.1'' and is listed at 6'8''.
Viper652 said on 23/Aug/06
Jordan, Warren Sapp is just a flat 6-1. NFL does bill a good number of guys over an inch from their actual barefoot height, and sometimes 2 or a few select guys.
TheMan said on 23/Jul/06
He's about 191 192cm 6,3. He was at one stage listed as 6,8 somewhere i think it was K-1. But Sapp is a huge huge guy and looks probably taller than he is.
Jordan said on 22/Jul/06
Warren sapp is listed at 6'2 so his lowest height can be 6'1 1/2. NHL rounds there players off, they dont just give them a full inch. Tom Brady was measured as 6'4 1/4 and is listed as 6'4. Kevin Mawae I remember was 6'3 3/4 and is listed as 6'4. Warren is listed as 6'2, so his lowest is 6'1 1/2.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 19/Jul/06
i thought he was 6'5, i've heard his cousin Warren Sapp the football player on oakland say he has a 6'5 cousin who used to play football and Warren is about 6'3 or 6'2.
fresh firsts said on 7/Jul/06
bob sapp is 6'4", there is not a lot of doubt there, he is tall but he is not 2 meters tall, that is an overestimate, that makes him seem more larger, i think
Gramps said on 13/May/06
Rob, how do you reconcile the two photos you link at the top of this page? Mr. X looks about 2.5" taller than Fishburne, but then Sapp looks about 5" taller than Mr. X. This math totals 6'7.75" for Sapp, which we know is not possible. Are you sure it's the same "Mr. X" in both photos? A careful look at Sapp's footwear might lead one to believe they have been "engineered!"

[Editor Rob: I don't, I leave it up there as an example of head scratching ;-) Sometimes even a few inches of difference between 2 subjects very close to the camera can enhance one person to look up to an inch taller...there is another pic where it appears the guy with glasses might be looking slightly up at clinton...not conclusive, but fishburne can arguably look 5ft 11 sometimes if he's in thin sandals which he sometimes wears

sd2002 said on 3/May/06
Bob Sapp said he was 6'4 on Pride's "Armed and Ready". I think Stephan Quadros who was interviewing him in that segment is about 6 ft. Bob looked about 2-3 inches taller so I'd say 6'3.
Frank said on 18/Feb/06
Lawrence Fishburne is about 6ft and that guy in the picture looks about 6ft 2 or 6ft 3 so Bobb Sapp could be 6ft 7

TheMan, the funny part is Dana White (UFC Promoter) kept calling the big cowboy guy "seven feet tall" when he's only 6'6"... he's just as bad as Vince McMahon!
Bakane said on 20/Jan/06
I am pretty happy here.
As i lived in japan, I used to see a lot of fights, commercials and events with him, and I was really surprised to see he was listed at 2,00 m. Because he was looking shorter than that, especially in th fight against Akebono. On the site, sherdog.com, he's listed at 6'5".
TheMan said on 20/Jan/06
Yeah that is odd J-Dog check the ufc site aswell some of them are now less. Like Mike Whiteheads only 6,0 compared to the 6,1 he was listed at. That big cowboy guy is not 6,7 but 6,6 now.
CoolJ said on 15/Jan/06
Read that he was 6'5 from a fairly reputable site.. but I can believe 6'4"
J-Dog. said on 14/Jan/06
That's funny becuase Bobby Southworth was listed as 6'2" on the Ultimate Fighter, television show. The thing is, is that some of those guys heights were not accurate until the finals when they actually did seem to measure them.
TheMan said on 11/Jan/06
He's 6,3 to be precise.
Jason said on 11/Jan/06
I've read Sapp (in a magazine) being as tall as 205cm (6'9'') lol.
Anonymous said on 10/Jan/06
Yep, they bill him as 200 cm in Japan. Probably because Pride over there is ran by wrestling-type promoters and there is a lot of crossover with pro-wrestling (which is treated like a legit sport over there by the media). They also billed him as "Warren Sapp's cousin" which is bogus.

A couple lines from his "rap single" he released in Japan (the guy was a HUGE, HUGE star over there a couple years ago): "200 is how I stand/everybody knows that I'm a big man"
Jason said on 10/Jan/06
What's up with those two pics? Fishburne must be much shorter than listed!
Jason said on 10/Jan/06
I'd take the .334'' thing as trying to say 6'3'' and change but got mixed up trying to make it like metric. What's the point of saying you're 6'4'' and then saying ''actually'' 6 foot and one third of a foot? :)

[Editor Rob: yes on Pride he gets listed 190cm...in the English version. Pride Japanese page gives a 200cm and 170kg listing??? Look at Bobby Southworth...183cm in Japanese original, 180cm in English.

Since 0.334*12 does equate to 4.008, that's what I thought he might have meant. In the same way I'm 5ft 8 inch, I'm also actually 5.667 foot.

But, it would be interesting to find what his draft combine height was...if he got listed 6ft 4 by nfl, it could have been as low as 6ft 3 and 5/8ths?
