height = 174 cm weight = 70 kg

Both him and Mayweather are short little guys, that weigh less than most women.
This guy especially has a Napoleon Complex.
Since when is the world so focused on watching Chihuahua fights?
truth said on 19/Jul/17
no, Raj. you just live in a world where everyone inflates their height by 1 inch if they are conservative, an inch and a half if they are a bit more brave and 2 inches + if they are full of **** so your perception of height is distorted. McGregor is not taller than Rob (founder of this site) who claims 5'8 (and wakes up damn near 175cm)
Dan said on 17/Jul/17
looks 5'10 compared to Floyd
Raj said on 17/Jul/17
You are funny guys. He is a strong 5 foot 9 lol
Floyd probably a weak 5 foot 8
JJTOM95 said on 17/Jul/17
To lots of guy below, Floyd was wearing thick soled shoes so all the comparsions are not reliable .

This has been posted before but this is an actual video of him getting measured at 5'11. Extremely inaccurately and laughable. I remember seeing him listed as 5'11 in I think it was his first UFC fight so this now makes sense. The guy is using loose tape and leaves a couple inches hanging on the floor. Click Here

If any one you are wondering how the UFC gets heights so off this definitely looks like it could be part of why.

5ft 8.5 max he has long limbs and huge head which gives illusion his taller
Peter175 said on 15/Jul/17
Listings correspond with what they usually look like together. I would maybe give the edge to Connor at 3-4 cms as opposed to 2-3cms

@Grizz Do something about it. Nobody can do nothing.

Wish Rob wouldve gotten a photo with this guy before he gets too fAmous. Probably same height.
XYZmeister said on 15/Jul/17
I don't agree, we're talking a significant foot wear advantage for floydm... at the London presser Conor was 4 cm taller than a hatless floyd and without the footwear advantage Conor is 5 cm taller not 3. 175 cm for Conor and 170bfor floyd.
Blake said on 15/Jul/17
Rob be honest he probably wouldn't be taller than you
Original said on 14/Jul/17
He is ~3cm taller than Floyd IMO.

171 for Floyd and 174 for McGregor.
Guesstimator said on 14/Jul/17
I wouldn't go off the NY press conference at all. Floyd was wearing a big ass pair of Nike Basketball shoes or something.

I reckon he probably knows McGregor's a bit obsessed with size (with all the comments about Mayweather being too small) and wore them intentionally at NY for that reason. I mean it's not even like he was trying to hide anything with those trainers displaying a thick white sole lol.

For me there's about an inch in difference between the two of them due to the difference in forehead size :) Less than I thought but I'm not sure who gets downgraded and who gets upgraded.
XYZmeister said on 14/Jul/17
Hi Rob it seems mayweather was wearing very thick soled shoes and Conor was a half inch taller so does this prove to you that if mayweather is 5'7.25 then Conor is actually 5'9? I think the evidence is pretty clear at this stage.
Jil Fad said on 14/Jul/17
I did see the high heel comment, but if you look at approximately 4:15-4:25 of this video, you can see both of their footwear. It seems that, yes, Mayweather does have slight advantage over Conor, but they don't look like lifts or anything. Have a look: Click Here

What do you think the footwear difference is here?
we said on 14/Jul/17
173cm
grizz said on 14/Jul/17
He isn't doing any favor to relinquishing the "angry short guy" stereotype.
Yas said on 14/Jul/17
I'd go with 5'9.
Tonyx said on 14/Jul/17
truth, give us your proof then.
Jil Fad, no they did not have closer footwear.
Guesstimator, yes Floyd Mayweather certainly was trying to look taller and more imposing during all 3 conferences against Conor Mcgregor.
You can go to Conor McGregors instagram page and look at the hd picture of his shoes during the Toronto press conference, where we can clearly see the natural position of the foot. There is also a photo of them standing face to face not moving, from the first press conference in LA, good for judging.
McGregor wore flat thin soled loafers to the third press conference with soles thinner then converse shoes, wore a big coat but took it of during the staredown. You can clearly see they are black loafers when he walked out with his team at the start of the presser. Floyd Mayweather on the other hand wore very thick soled footwear, thicker then before. Add to that the hoodie, the hat and Floyd raising the head higher then before. From the third conference staredown we cloud see that Conors head is bigger, but he doesn't have a big head. Conors chin is lower then floyds, while the top of Conors head was on the same level as the very top of Floyds big baseball hat.
Average dress shoes that Connor wears give less height then Floyds thick soled sneakers and the only time Floyd looked same height as Conor was in NY.
Conor half an inch balck loafers vs Floyd thick soled footwear for sure no thinner then one inch(and i am being open minded), but looked like they had extra thick soles about 1.25-1.35in.
Conor wearing no hat vs Floyd wearing a big tilted baseball hat.
Conor standing straight not tilting his head vs Floyd raising his eye level tilting his head while the peak of the baseball hat conceals it in the front and the hoodie conceals it in the back(IT- being the unnatural stretching on the neck, tilting of the head, raising the eye level).
I am not saying Conor Mcgregor towers Floyd Mayweather, but he is 3 cm taller then him naturally.
P.S. You guys need to pay closer attention to all the details, while remaining unbiased. I have been a Floyd Mayweather fan for a long time, but i can see through his tricks. Why? Because i have done them myself and i have went way further then that(not proud of it). Mayweather, just like McGregor cares about a lot of things, one of them being his appearance.
I would really like to see non deleted hd pictures of Conor McGregor or Floyd Mayweather wearing lifts or elevator shoes.

175 .... Big head
Jjjj said on 14/Jul/17
He said take those high heels off to floyd at new york
Big T said on 14/Jul/17
Is it just me or does he have an unusually large head. Almost shoulder to shoulder with Mayweather and then just dwarves him with the cranium.
Jil Fad said on 13/Jul/17
Rob, what do you think of the height difference in their newest NY press conference? In this one they seem to have closer footwear (whereas in the others Conor seemed to be wearing lifts almost), so it should be more accurate. Click Here

There are numerous times in that video you can see them face to face.
Editor Rob: Conor called him out:

"Look at them High Heels" 😂

"Get them High Heels off you little f*****g Squirt"
Guesstimator said on 13/Jul/17
He's about 2-3 cm taller than Mayweather. Not as much bigger than I expected.

Not a lot in it and not a big difference when it comes to boxing.

Mayweather was certainly not trying to appear taller lol. Mayweather cares about one thing only. MONEY.

UFC fans know Poirier is a legit 5'9 and Conor looks 1-2 cm taller than him during the barefoot press faceoffs. And in the last MayMac press conference Mayweather wore serious lits and Conor was still taller. Conor McGregor can't be shorter than 5'9 no matter what, night or not.

@ Snowmeow - Love the name!
JTChrysler said on 13/Jul/17
Watch Dana Whites Video Blog.. when Conor and Dana both arrive on the tarmac, Conor looks nearly as tall as Dana who's said to be 5'11". He looked a good 2 inches taller than Floyd. And Eddy Alvarez who they say is also 5'9" Conor was WAYY taller than him. Day 2, look at Floyd's sneakers when they're facing each other in Toronto.. looks like they add nearly 2''. From the looks of Conor he's 5 9.5 to 5.10 or they're all shorter than reported.

Conor is 174cm tall. Floyd is 171cm tall.
Conor always dresses up in tight clothes, and if he wears a suit jacket it has little to no padding. During the UFC 202 official weigh-ins(second fight against Nate Diaz) he walked out to the stage from behind the curtains barefoot, no shoes or slippers, wearing sweat pants, tank top and an Irish flag, showing confidence. He wears mostly thin soled sneakers or loafers. He only wears dress shoes with a suit(like any proper man would). The soles on his dress shoes are always of average thickness, never on the thick side or thicker then others. Never wears boots to events. EVER. They might look thick from a certain angle because he wears tight clothes, short fitted trousers. His started cutting his hair a lot shorter after he beat Jose Aldo in 2015. No, he very clearly does not have a quiffed hairstyle. It is clearly neatly, aggressively brushed to the side and backwards. His beard is cut much shorter these days. Doesn't let it grow out too much. During staredowns he stands with military posture but doesnt put his legs together, he is a fighter. We know for sure that Conor McGregor does not wear lifts. He wants to intimidate, but doesn't do fake s..t. He is a fighter first, then an entertainer, he fights barefoot in the octagon with hd cameras recording. He undresses down to his underwear on the stage during wigh ins. He cares about looking tough, like an alpha male, but again, he doesn't do fake s..it. Hes not an actor or a musician or reality tv personality, he knocks strong muscular men out cold with his fists, wearing tiny gloves, fitted boxers-briefs/trunks not wearing any shoes. He is not like you, or me, or other celebs listed on this website.
Floyd mayweather came to the first press conference wearing a hoodie with slightly dropped shoulders, and a big hood that gave him volume around his neck, not your average hoodie. He wore a baseball hat tiled at an angle so that it made his head look bigger, lifted his head higher in a way that if Conor wanted to come closer, he'd collide with peak of the baseball hat. He wore the hoodie and the baseball hat to look more imposing and make it harder to judge his height, harder to size him up. During the second press conference Floyd wore thick soled airmax type sneakers. On top of the thick soled black sneakers he wore matching black jeans and a matching black fitted tee. Of course he wore a big baseball hat tilted at an angle that made him look taller. So all black with some red details up top. All matching, making him look taller. Some jewelry up top to stear away from the bottom half of his body to the the top.
During both staredowns Floyd stood with his legs closer together while Conor stood straight, but with legs wider. Floyd lifts his head higher to look taller.
I cant wait to see the official wighins staredown when they are wearing only underwear and nothing else standing straight, no hats no shoes, nothing with a full body shot.
Neither Floyd Mayweather nor Conor McGregor wear lifts, or elevator shoes or any kind of magic shoes... well Conor does when hes looking for gold because he is Irish. These guys are athletes, only Floyd uses fake s..t to intimidate:making Conor walk out with no entrance music; making him wait for 5 minutes on stage, cutting his mike off during the first presser, not letting him respond, wearing big hats , hoodies and thicker soled footwear, standing with his legs closer together knowing McGregor wont push him or wont come too close because he will be fined or/and sued and Floyd can afford anything he wants but Conor cant. Boxing is protecting Mayweather against the Irishman and they should. Conor stand straight but legs not too close.Floyd is the past while Conor is the present and the near future.
Mark my words, everything will be clear when they stand at the official weighins face to face with they'r noses slightly touching(no homo).
They both have huge egos, but only Floyd Mayweather uses clothes to make him bigger, while Mcgregor just stands straight puffing his chest out.
That being said, neither of them wears lifts. Floyd will wear thick soled low key foot wear but not lifts.
Both great fighters and great men. Wish i could be like them. I am envious of what they have achieved in their lives.
Gaz said on 12/Jul/17
Here a good pic of the footwear Click Here
Editor Rob: both their footwear actually look similar, a little over an inch range I'd have thought.
snowmeow said on 12/Jul/17
This 5'8.5 ft listing is spot on. Mcgregor had about 3cm on mayweather during their staredown. But Conor looked like he was wearing thick heeled black dress shoes to appear more imposing while mayweather had flat sneakers.
Guesstimator said on 12/Jul/17
Would it really be 2 inches? They were both wearing shoes at the Toronto presser and they both were at the same eye and chin level.

McGregor appears to have a bigger forehead and a bit of a quiffed hairstle going on but it doesn't look like 2 inches to me, looks more like 2cm tbh.

Surprising as he's supposed to be a lot bigger. Even Malignaggi says he was was smaller than he was expecting.
truth said on 12/Jul/17
@powerhouse

yawn. he's just an insecure lift-wearer. 5'8 flat
Powerhouse said on 12/Jul/17
Easy 2 inches on Floyd. More I see of McGregor less convinced I am that he just is 5'8.5.
Mcgregormayhoe said on 12/Jul/17
I'd say spot on close to 5'9 I think he had 2 inches OK Floyd and Floyd wore that hat on purpose so couldn't size them up correctly. Big conor fan but his gonna get boxed up but at least he will make a ton of cash.
Ly said on 12/Jul/17
Had 2 inches on mayweather
5"9 minimum for conor
MD said on 12/Jul/17
Given all the talk here I was expecting him to look so much taller than Floyd at the conference yesterday. He didn't.
datguy said on 11/Jul/17
so how much taller would you say he is than floyd after the staredowns? i thought it was a bit over an inch
Editor Rob: wouldn't have thought less than 3cm.
Gaz said on 11/Jul/17
And sorry Rob when i said i hope they don't wear lifts i meant in the press conference because it's hard to judge their height against each other in the ring and even in the stare down right before the fight.
jonsnow said on 11/Jul/17
conor looks like a giant compared to most fw because they inflate their height by several inches and conor went full skeletor mode to make the 145 lbs weight limit. boh chad mendes and brandao, respectively listed at 5'6'' and 5'7'' are more like 5'4'' for example
Peter175 said on 11/Jul/17
Just saw the staredown with Floyd. Need to see their shoeware, but just from a quick look, about 3-4 cm different between the two. 1.5 more than floyd is my guess
Levi said on 11/Jul/17
Had at least a inch on Floyd in their last press conference. Though could have had the footwear advantage.
DruceLee said on 11/Jul/17
What do you think now after press conference Connor 175cm, Floyd 171 ?
Gaz said on 11/Jul/17
Looked more than an inch difference in the first stare down
Mickey said on 11/Jul/17
he looked considerably taller than mayweather during their staredown... and mayweather was wearing a hat
Beej said on 11/Jul/17
I'd say 5 '8.5 is bang on! He is slim at around 160 -162 (11 and a half stone) current walkaround - so could easily appear to look taller proportion -wise. He never looks 5 '8 but neither looks anywhere near 5 '10. I guess I'd put Mayweather at 5'7.5.
Gaz said on 10/Jul/17
Rob you must be curious to see how Conor and Floyd stack up against each other lol i know i am. Just hope none of them have lifts! lol
Editor Rob: how much Conor has on Floyd will be interesting...

I doubt they'll have lifts in the ring! The only lifting that I can see happening is when the referee hoists Conor up from the ground after being knocked out 👊 🤛

Agree with @jobew, Conor is at least 5'9.
Peruvian 1.68 said on 5/Jul/17
Hey big rob, the stature in the official page of the UFC always add (1-1.5 cm) to the fighters for example to mc gregor in ufc: 1.75 (celebheights: 1.74) / jose aldo: 1.70 (celebheights: 1.68.5) / Chad mendes in cfu: 1.68 (celebheights: 1.65); Because this can happen, maybe they measure with shoes? ; Do you think we should all reduce 1.5 cm from your cfu listing to get real heights?,You could analyze enrique barzola stature in ufc: 1.70, has the appearance of 1.68
Editor Rob: it's like with Boxing, some people might be honest, others give a slightly inflated figure.

It would be useful if they introduced an official measuring, in addition to the weigh-in.

I know because of the divisions and weight variance it is more interesting, but seeing an actual measurement is very interesting for fans.
jobew said on 4/Jul/17
Connor and his fans want to believe he's not been towering over most fw opponents and been david to Diaz's goliath, but connor is close to 5'10 i'd bet. the below pics with Poirer and GSP should show he's not 5'8.5. he looked like a giant when beating up Barao, Siver, and Mendez

Hey Rob how tall would you say tony ferguson is he claims 5'11 but looks much closer to 5'10
Editor Rob: actually his quote I seen was "walk around at 180 to 185 when im not doing anything, right now bout 175, and droppin' im 5'11'', and 6' on a good day", but I doubt even 5ft 11 for him....

I wonder if Mayweather will wear lifts in their stare-down?

Yep prob 5ft 8.5 is the correct.

Rogan is 5'6 at the absolute best but probably slightly less than that.
He is a notorious lift wearer.
He was TJ Dillashaw's height at some weigh ins ( Barao fight ? ) with TJ being barefoot and Joe in shoes...

Conor is 5'8" to 5'8.5" obviously
dshawn said on 11/Jun/17
how tall do you think chad mendes is? he is listed as 5'6 by the ufc but conor was almost a head taller than him.
Editor Rob: might be 5ft 5
Jon said on 1/Jun/17
Hey Rob, how tall do you think Jose Aldo is? Conor looked to have about two inches on him, so perhaps around the 169 cm range?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't put him over 169, can look 168-9 zone.

Cameron said on 26/Mar/17
Well I'm assuming the measure mixed martial artist barefoot. Unlike many sports where the measure athletes with shoes. However they probably did round his height up a little bit. I think it's safe to say he's probably over 5'8" flat but not quite a full 5'9".
Miamiman said on 22/Mar/17
I think a fight that everybody would like to see is Jorge Masvidal vs Mcgregor and then Masvidal vs Khabib. I'm pretty sure Masvidal would do sooo much work on them both.
Josh said on 22/Mar/17
@Sonny Black... Conor would have a nervous breakdown if someone told him he was 5'8. If the UFC changed his height to 5'8, then the UFC would change everyone else's height to what they are actually are. There are a lot of fighters who are the same age as him and are not actually the height they say they are, which I think is a joke but it is what it is. They would have a nervous breakdown as well. The UFC treats everyone differently when it comes to height. We all have to consider him being 5'9 is fake.
Sonny Black said on 16/Mar/17
Wish they would measure fighters like they weigh them... I've met some UFC personalities and all were shorter than expected.
I've met:
- Diego Sanchez (listed 5'10-5'11. Actual height 5'8 flat)
- Mark Coleman (listed 6'1. Actual height 6'0)
- Frank Mir (listed 6'3. Actual height 6'1.5)
- Michael Bisping (listed 6'1-6'2. Actual height 5'11.5)

Conor walks around at about 168lbs-170lbs and in my estimation is likely 5'8 out of bed and slightly under that when he goes to bed.
Liam said on 15/Mar/17
Anthony Pettis and Chris Wade are the same height as him. They both would be able to handle Conor really well. Conor is 5'8". Chris Wade was unbeaten in the UFC for a little bit.
josh jeffords said on 11/Mar/17
This is an absolute max on a good day estimate he wont see 510 or 11 out of shoes.
Seen him do lots of promo stuff and fights he is a small man, he always makes fun of people bigger than him common defense for such.
That being said his boxing and some of his other strikes as well as "movement" or footwork to the educated is great!
His weight is probably down to 150 so he can box that short guy, he has been up around 170 was not impressive too small for welter weight.

Click Here he claimed 5 foot 9 in this video I think he 5'8-5'8.5... 5'9 in shoes
rational thinker said on 5/Mar/17
if you look at the measuring video, the guy's finger was just below 71, so a) he rounded up, b) he also measured from top of his heavily styled hair (gotta be at least inch of hair there), c) the tape was not against the wall, the guy leaned in with the tape to measure hence tape was slanted (which means measurement distortion) d) finally, though to even get close to 71 inches barefoot reading (albeit in a distorted manner) dude's gotta be around 5'9"
Editor Rob: actually it was the 'Big G Supertape' the guy was using...
BT said on 5/Mar/17
@Kourosh: Yeah he's maybe getting a solid inch from the sneakers, I don't know, maybe you have some input on that Rob? Conor also has a tad worse posture I think, so around 5'8.5 makes sense. It's hard to argue over that mark though if Rooney is only 5'9 flat.
Editor Rob: hard to tell what sneakers Wayne had, but probably an inch range.
Dale said on 5/Mar/17
Every MMA fighter is treated differently. I think it's time the UFC should be realistic and put him at 5ft 8in. He's not 5ft 9.
Joe said on 5/Mar/17
Him being measured at 5ft 11in when he faced Diego Brandao made me laugh sooo much. They probably forgot to put him at 5ft 10in because there's no way he's taller than Holloway. I bet you if he joined the WWE, they'd put him at exactly 5ft 11in.
Kourosh 5'9.5 (176cm-177cm) said on 2/Mar/17
How much height is wayne getting from those sneakers? i think a good inch. Ronney is 5'9 and in that shoes he is about 5'10 or a change over. Conner appeared to be 2 inches shorter in that picture, so 5'8 to 5'8.5 is a good shot for conor.
BT said on 1/Mar/17

Gaz said on 1/Mar/17
@Marshall Lol that is not how you properly measure a person's height. Everyone knows including Conor that he is not 5'11. Conor claims 5'9 all the time. We have seen him next to enough people to determine that he is not over 5'9. And he is not close to the height of 5'11 listed fighters like Max Holloway Click Here
Blake said on 1/Mar/17
I think the reaches/armspans they give out online are exaggerated and if you actually measured them I think they would be different like Connor Mcgregor having a 188cm reach
Realist said on 1/Mar/17
Conor wipl tell you he's 5'9 so saying he's 5'11 I must be almost 6 feet lmfao I am 177 cms with perfect posture and I bet I am taller than him by atleast 3 cms😄
Jonson said on 1/Mar/17
Rob what would you guess Tyron Woodley's height as
Click Here
Jonson said on 1/Mar/17
The measurement in question is even better evidence of him being less that 5'9" lol. They measured his reach 72" (less than 74" listing) by the way his arms are stretched out he pulled the tape further than needed so really I would assume his reach is 70", closer to his real height of 5'8.25"-8.5". Guy who measured should get a new job.
Kourosh 5'9.5 (176cm-177cm) said on 28/Feb/17
How the hell they measured him 5'11???
Marshall said on 27/Feb/17
Rob Very rare instance were a celebrity is measured barefoot and Conor was put at 5'11 With the video below so why is he stuck at 5'8 here when he is clearly taller?

@Levis im not being silly just trying to educate you a bit. Even Bus rutten who i respect him alot did say Bruce could hang in actual fighting he just needs 6 months training and then he can compete in cage fighting.I have his video so i can share it with you no problem. Conor was nice about him? not really he said it like it is.I am not saying Bruce was untouchable, could he become a MMA fighter? ABSOLUTELY. Could he lose in MMA fight? Most probably. But to say that Bruce was just an actor not a fighter shows your ignorance and lack of knowledge.

Kourosh are you being this silly about it? Haven't you heard Bas Rutten (who Rob you should add, claimed 6'1" but could be below that) talk about this? Saying "oh it can't be used in the ring" is no excuse, pro fighters are pro fighters. Yeah Conor was nice about him, that's good publicity and respecf. Bruce Lee was a actor, not a fighter.
Kourosh 5'9.5 (176cm-177cm) said on 21/Feb/17
@ Levi

in first statement you said that Bruce was not a fighter which is an absurd claim to make. Even Conor himself stated that bruce could compete in the actual fight. Here it is Click Here this is the man's own thoughts on legend of Bruce lee. Difference between bruce and MMA fighters is that bruce lee was training to kill or to be killed which i cannot say that for the pro fighters.

Whether you agree or not, Bruce Lee is the biggest icon in Martial arts world. I am an amateur fighter myself , and every gym i have been to i see his picture on the wall.

Peace out bro.
Levi said on 19/Feb/17
@Kourush Bruce did not fight professionally like Conor McGregor does. There is a difference between training martial arts techniques, compared to being put into a cage against a guy who is trying to apply those techniques to you. Could Bruce fight? Certainly. But he was a actor and not a professional fighter. Conor would destroy him in a real fight. He's larger (Rob has him pegged taller, and I'd trust Rob), heavier with actual fighting experience and extensive grappling knowledge.
Kourosh 5'9.5 (176cm-177cm) said on 18/Feb/17
@Levi bruce was not fighter? ignorance represents you well. Bruce formed new martial arts by learning different martial arts and introduced interception of fist. Bruce has been training martial arts all his life and has been involved in street fights as well. If he was not a fighter, he couldnt perform all those excellent jabs, kicks, flexibility and movement in the movies.
andreea said on 16/Feb/17
Rob didn't you have Conor listed at 173cm? What happened?
Editor Rob: overall I feel nearer 174 may be the better figure
Dashlin said on 14/Feb/17
@levi ...Conor even admitted that he said he likes easy fights. People don't want to hear that because they know it's the truth. It's impossible for him to a 2 division champion. He took Anthony's Pettis's idea of becoming a 2 weight division champion when Pettis came up with that 1st. If Pettis really wanted to he would've beat RDA back in March 2015 and Alvarez . Conor would've been scared to face him for the Lightweight belt. The way he fought RDA was not the real him. Also I'm pretty sure Chan Sung Jungs striking matches up with Mcgregor but I'm pretty sure Jungs strikings a lot better than his.
Levi said on 14/Feb/17
Yeah Jones is bigger and taller, hence fighting at a higher weight class. Conor is a two division champion, Jones fights in one weight division. Jones also uses grappling and had a lot of fights end by decision. Conor ends the vast majority of his bouts with knockouts from striking. The first simultaneous two division world champion who wins his fights in dominating fashion with striking, making pound for pound greats look like amateurs, is not a better striker than Jon Jones who struggled to outstrike a journey man like OSP? Jones is also a known drug cheat. Jones wins most of his fights using his massive size advantage and a mix of great clinch work and abusinf his freakish height and long arms. Conor wins his fights using technical and accurate striking with nasty counters... And despite fighting at lower weight classes (where knockouts are statistically less likely) he still has a far superior knockout ratio than Jones who for most of his career fought blown up middleweights.

Bruce was an actor, not a fighter.
Cvgo95 said on 13/Feb/17
@Dashlin. Maybe you have been watching it for a long time, that doesn't change the fact that you're completely clueless when it comes to MMA. Being illiterate doesn't help either. You're acting as if I said Jones is a bad fighter. A lot of people would consider him pound for pound number 1, that doesn't change the fact that his striking isn't his main attribute whatsoever. Gustafsson completely out-struck Jones in their fight. Also, if you actually followed MMA you'd know that JJ's opposition has been nothing compared to McGregor's. Jones's best win was against Cormier. Whereas McGregor knocked out the greatest featherweight of all time, who was pound for pound number 1 at the time. That's more impressive than anything Jones has ever done. Taking nothing away from Jones, who's a truly incredible fighter himself.
The fact that you think Bruce Lee could beat McGregor renders your opinion irrelevant anyway. Not to mention the fact that you think GSP has better striking than McGregor. By your logic Sylvester Stallone would've knocked out a prime Mike Tyson.
Dashlin said on 12/Feb/17
@Cvgo95...Everything you said made absolutely no sense lmao. Ive actually been watching UFC for a long time. I think you don't think you realize that if Jones had never got in that accident he would still be the main man of the sport. Jones is way taller and stronger than him. As for Bruce Lee, if Lee ever trained professionally he would've beaten Mcgregor along time ago. Jon Jones won his 1st belt at age 23. It took Mcgregor to get to the age of 27 to even win a real belt at a real organization such as the UFC. Thats a lot to know. Now tell me who's the better striker.
Levi said on 11/Feb/17
Dashlin your hate for McGregor is pretty obvious. You'd probably peg him at 5'7" if you could. Conor has the best striking in MMA currently, nobody KOs the P4P #1 in 13 seconds and makes Eddie Alvarez look silly. Also your ignorance about MMA is clear, Jones and GSP are known for their well rounded games, no primarily striking like McGregor.
Conor would kill Bruce Lee who was an actor, not a fighter. Bruce also would know nothing about the wrestling and Jiu Jitsu of today. Maybe Bruce would have potential to be a good MMA fighter, but we'll never know. What we do know is that Conor would destroy Bruce in a MMA fight.
Cvgo95 said on 11/Feb/17
@Dashlin. You've clearly never watched the sport in your entire life. Anyone that follows MMA and has no bias knows that McGregor is a far superior striker to both Jones and GSP. Did you honestly just mention GSP? That proves you've never watched him. I consider GSP to be one of the greatest MMA fighters ever. That being said, anyone that knows anything about the sport knows that his main weakness is his striking. GSP isn't a striker whatsoever. Watch GSP v Diaz to see what GSP does against strikers. Bruce Lee? McGregor would squash him. The man was great no doubt, but he never even had the chance to fight professionally. That's like saying Chuck Norris would've beat GSP.
Dashlin said on 10/Feb/17
@Cvgo95...If Bruce lee was still with us, all it would take is one strike for Mcgregor to go down in the octagon. Jones and GSPs striking are wayyy better than Mcgregors even though it's different weights. Just remember Bruce lee is the man not Mcgregor.
Cvgo95 said on 8/Feb/17
@SL9. You can't possibly believe that. "John Cena can fight" What are you talking about? No he can't. John Cena is an actor. Whereas Conor McGregor is one of, if not the best striker in MMA. That's like saying Dolph Lundgren would've beat Mike Tyson in a fight. One's an elite level fighter, whilst one is a actor with zero combat skills or talent. Size only matters when there's a similar skill level.

Boombass said on 30/Jan/17
He's too small. He's 5ft 8in. The UFC did the right thing about stripping the featherweight belt away from him. What happens if there's a fighter from another country passed his level that no ones knows anything about or even if there's a fighter that's in Bellator who's passed his level and has an undeated record. That fighter might come on a short notice and beat him. He's setting himself up for failure. It's obvious, we all know Nate Diaz gave him that win the second time they fought.

Dan you should look through the comments here. Shots of Poirier and Conor have been posted, barefoot face to face. Conor edges him out by cm or so. Also losing 1.5" during the day? Highly improbable. I'd bet all the money I have in the world Conor doesn't drop below the 5'8" mark.
Khabib is maybe a little taller than Conor and Pettis, who are pretty similar in height. Khabib is undefeated, but that's what happens when the vast majority of the people you have fought are bums.
Samchuckles said on 16/Jan/17
Some MMA sites will tell how tall an MMA fighter is. Like for instance Cagerank puts Mcgregor at 5'8". They are speaking the truth because they have smart ways on finding out how tall a fighter actually is. This website is one of the best resources as well because Rob actually stands with these celebrities so he could easily measure Mcgregor and show you how tall Mcgregor actually is. Celebheights is definitely speaking the truth about putting him at 5'8".
Dan said on 16/Jan/17
He is very verbal and vocal probably to compensate due to his lack in size...but putting that aside...my estimate is maybe 5'9 straight out of bed but around 5'8 during most of the day and about 5'7 and a half at late evening time. Poirier was a bit taller than him at face off even while McGregor had Nike Air Max shoes on. I would say 5'8 (173 cm) for McGregor unless this site uses straight out of bed height?
Sparkles1997 said on 15/Jan/17
Michael page would destroy Mcgregor . He ll throw Conor like a rag doll. Michael page would also destroy Jose Aldo and Rory Macdonald.
Sparkles1997 said on 12/Jan/17
@Levi... so Mr.Levi, Pettis and Mcgregor have never stood next to each other so you can't say Mcgregor is taller than Pettis when you haven't seen them both together but it is reasonable to tell that Pettis is the real plain 5ft 9niner. I will say Khabib Nurmagomedov ( 5ft 10in ) is taller than both. I will say that. Khabib actually beats everyone so he deserves more credit than Conor. Khabib deserves more credit knowing that he hasn't lost 1 fight in his record so he deserves more respect than Conor and I ll just say Jose Aldo as well.
HonestSlovene said on 9/Jan/17
Diaz is a strong 6'0" and McGregor is a weak 5'9. The listing is pretty much spot on, could be 5'8.75" or the full 5'9".
Levi said on 8/Jan/17
McGregor is similar to or perhaps even taller than Athony Pettis. Watch their fights with Eddie Alaverez, Conor clearly looks the larger of the two in comparison. Despite his shorter listing. Also Pettis is losing to everybody including Eddie, who Conor just beat.
BradBurgos79 said on 8/Jan/17
Mcgregor is not 5'9". He's too small and short to join the WWE. He's 5ft 8. Everyone knows Anthony Pettis is better than Mcgregor. When has Mcgregor ever jumped off a cage and kicked someone in the face. That's right never, Pettis came up with that.
Animus said on 6/Jan/17
Nate Diaz is close to the same height as Bisping: Click Here

Contrary to his listing on this site, Bisping is not really 6'1" - he is shorter than Brian Stann, who is 6'1". I'd say Bisping is 6'0.5" (at the most) and Nate Diaz is 6'0"-6'0.5". A good listing for Nate would probably be 6'0.25", although he could be 6' flat.

Importer said on 1/Jan/17
I don't know of the whereabouts of the reliability on this source however if it is indeed the legit billed stats of MMA fighters, then anything close to a 0.25 inch to 6ft looks ok for him, being said he does look a solid 3inches taller than Connor who Is 5'9, so at the very least 6ft though as you said he might as well look 184 during the daylight ( I watched his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel) and do consider the fact that athletes give a taller pose than ordinary men. My guess for Nate 6'0 and would believe in 6ft 0.25inch but 6ft 0.75inch would be the most generous claim for him.

james said on 24/Dec/16
I would say he can get away with claiming 5ft9 because he looks it at times. The lowest that I think he hits is 5ft8.25 at night and wakes up close to a full 5ft9. 5ft8.5 seems like a fair listing thought I think 5ft8.75 is more near his height during the day.
tbootty said on 24/Dec/16
Conor seems taller due to abnormally long arms with an actual 72" reach whereas most people in the 5'8"-5'9" range have about 68"-70" reach. In the European circuit he was listed 5'8" and I seriously doubt they would give him less than he was. In my opinion 5'8.5 is perfect guess.

everything you said was correct except for poirier. poirier was taller than him at the barefoot weigh-in and in the octagon. they were on only one occasion the same height at a press conference staredown when conor had the dress shoes advantage. poirier is also taller than many opponents he's fought that were listed at 5'10 like michael johnson and bobby green, but I don't think he's 5'10. just an actual honest 5'9

I have never seen McGregor stand on his tip-toes at weigh-ins or anywhere else. I would like to see proof of that. I have seen him stand at his tallest and raise his eye level as an intimidation tactic used against shorter opponents, but I have never seen him on his tip-toes.

Closer to 5'9" than 5'8". He is the same height as many listed 5'10" fighters such as Anthony Pettis or Doo Ho Choi. He was far taller than 5'9" listed Alvarez and edged out Poirier in a barefoot face off. Of course Alaverez 5'9" listing is false, and so are Pettis and Chois listings, but Conor certainly seems to big for 5'8". He is clearly taller than Joe Rogan when Rogan is in his big dress shoes.

Also to the guy saying Diaz let Conor win and would have won due to his height, you srs? Conor beat him to hell and back in the second contest.

A guy who's 5ft 8 can beat someone who's 5ft 11in so height wouldn't matter at all. Conor Mcgregor is different. Notice how Conor beat Max Holloway and Nate Diaz. (Decision). We haven't seen a fight in the UFC where he's KO'd or TKO'd someone who was 5ft 11 or over.
Yadson Fuentes said on 14/Dec/16
Mcgregor wouldn't be able to keep that lightweight belt against the taller men in the lightweight division. Alvarez is listed as 5ft 10, but clearly he looked the same height as Mcgregor in the octagon. We know that he couldn't beat Nate the 1st time. Diaz could've won the 2nd fight but he gave it to Mcgregor because he knew that Mcgregor was too small for him. Khabib Nurmagomedov can finish him in the first round. He's had no losses at all. I'm pretty sure Khabib would be able to finish Eddie Alvarez as well.

Ben, you're hilarious!! I never knew you could tower people an inch shorter or even the same height as yourself, fascinating.
Gaz said on 24/Nov/16
@Ben Who does he tower over who is 5'8 and 5'9? that would be a difficult thing to do considering Conor is around 5'9 unless those people's heights are way of.
Ben said on 23/Nov/16
Hes a solid 5ft 9, towers over many 5ft 8s and some 5ft 9s in ufc

Solid 5'9

@Rob,

I think you were right the first time. Tony is visibly taller, and even if you put Kanye in boots, we're still looking at something closer to 5'8" than the 5'9" everyone believes. I think Conor looks taller than he really is. I guess this is a warning against upping him further than he's already been.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Nov/16
He does have a 19th century bare knuckle Irish boxer mentality and demenour about him, but then do does Tyson Fury. He's not a guy you'd like to get into a disagreement with in a bar put it that way!!
Jackson said on 14/Nov/16
Pretty hilarious that Alvarez is listed at 5'9 as a fighter
Watching the fight, Conor had at least an inch and a half on him
I'd say Conor is 5'8.75 and Alvarez 5'7 flat
Powerhouse said on 14/Nov/16
I agree with this listing, he deserved the upgrade.
Cvgo95 said on 13/Nov/16
What made you upgrade him? On another note, what an incredible fighter. So rare for a european fighter to have elite level striking as he does.
Editor Rob: I think all I've seen for 2 years that 174 could be the fairest mark.
mic12check said on 13/Nov/16
wow he got bumped up to 174. i think that's fair, probably wakes up at 176, 173 before bed.
Phil said on 13/Nov/16
terrible tattoos. well he is a strong 5 foot 8 guy.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 13/Nov/16
McGregor: 173.5cm
Alvarez: 169.5-170cm
Powerhouse said on 13/Nov/16
Conor was easily 2 inches taller than Eddie get your eyes checked. He also made short work of Eddie, no pun intended.
Anamalech said on 12/Nov/16
I think he is no more than 5'8. He barely inched out a 5'6.5-5.7 Eddie
Camel said on 12/Nov/16
Total bagooglee! For sure 5,9 at his lowest!
Randomdude said on 12/Nov/16
he had about an inch on Eddie
Xyzmeister said on 12/Nov/16
Rob I think you are wrong about at this one, in the weigh ins Eddie's head is below Conor's hairline and Eddie is a legit 5'7 no less. In perspective Donor can't be under 5'9. So just think about that Rob. As for most other people guessing here, well they are terrible at estimating height.
Editor Rob: well, the average guess for Connor is nearly 5ft 8.5, it is a believable figure, so I will say I think it is fair to give him that.
Edward said on 11/Nov/16
I was always a believer mcgregor was a legite 5'9 but I think today's morning weigh in stare down to an obvious 5'7 Eddie Alvarez proves the lower 5'8 estimate. No way he was 2 inches taller!
An honest guy said on 11/Nov/16
Wow even shorter guys on this site get no love Conor is a legit 5'9 debatable 5'9 and a half no way conor is 5'8 when he edged out 5'8 Dos anjos in there staredown

Jan said on 10/Nov/16
Hey guys,

A question for u Rob,
If Mcconor is only 5'8 than that would make George ST Pierre 5'9? They are almost the same height.
Realist said on 9/Nov/16
Typical 5'8 guy
Hayo said on 9/Nov/16
Look at these two clips with Ariel Helwani (listed 5'11 on IMBD):

Walking side-by-side (notice size difference revealing itself when the camera man moves to the left): Click Here

Walking down steps: Click Here

Ariel is much bigger. It puts McGregor's win over Diaz into perspective. One of heck of a feat.

Take the Ariel comparison into consideration when comparing Chad Mendes (says he's 5'5, but maybe closer to 5'4.5) and McGregor: Click Here

There's no way he's 5'9. In his early fighting days he was always listed as 5'8. Walking around daytime at 5'7.5-5'8 barefoot is a real possibility.

------

Here's a really good shot of Alvarez next to Ariel: Click Here

Ariel towers him. Seems likely Alvarez is much, much closer to 5'6 than 5'7.
Strong 5ft9 said on 8/Nov/16
@mic12check So either they measured his height and got him at 175.0 cm (5'8.9") or the doctors asked how tall he is and he might've said 5'9" (the doctors might've rounded his height to the nearest cm) or gave out 175 cm. Either way, it looks pretty early in the morning and if that's the case, he's most likely a strong 5'8" at night and pretty close to 5'9" out of bed if they actually measured him.
BT said on 8/Nov/16
@Tbootty: Conor looks 2 inches taller than Alvarez: Click Here
Adam said on 8/Nov/16
He is at the very least 174cm. He stretches alot so his height fluctuates alot I reckon. I have always thought hes 5ft 9 but the only time I thought he wasnt was when he fought against Dustin Poirier who is also 5ft 9 he looked a little bit shorter.
Tbootty said on 8/Nov/16
John Kavanagh claims Eddie Alvarez is 5'7 and Conor is 5'10.

Alvarez def looks 5'7 but Conor only appears to be 1" taller.

Rob I think its about time u give conor an upgrade to 5 foot 9 because he is 1 inch taller then 5 foot 8 rafael dos anjos and 2 inches taller then 5 foot 7 eddie alvarez.
mic12check said on 31/Oct/16
@strong 5ft9 get your ego in check.
typing... said on 31/Oct/16
Joe Duffy is a legit 5'10 (I think he is the only one in ufc( he looks taller than most 5'10 , 5'11 listed in ufc, and he looked way taller than Connor mccregor. I give Connor 174cm max
Strong 5ft9 said on 29/Oct/16
@mic12check. Also looks like he was measured first thing thing in the morning, and celebheights estimates people's heights by mostly afternoon or night heights. So yeah, nice try buddy.
Randomdude said on 28/Oct/16
Joe Duffy looks like a solid 5'10 to me VV
Levi said on 28/Oct/16
Rob he could enter his own height. But why would he lie when the scan is all about accuracy and assessing where he needs to improve his performance. Fibbing about a inch would really mess up the data and such.
Editor Rob: it certainly isn't impossible, he can look 5ft 8.5 range.
Frankie shore said on 27/Oct/16
Rob can you tell us why you believe that Conor mcgregor is 5 foot 8 not 9?
mic12check said on 26/Oct/16
looks like rob (and everyone who guessed under 5'9) might have to eat their claim on this one. they just released a video of him getting a DEXA scan (most accurate tool to measure body composition) and if you look closely at the bottom right corner of the computer screen at 0:57 of this video, it says he is 175.0 cm and 75.3 kg (right under his name at the bottom of the line splitting the screen in two).

Editor Rob: As you can see here, I think the controller can enter basic details into the program like name/date of birth, height weight.
SportsHeight said on 26/Oct/16
Rob, do you think fighters dip below their regular "absolute low" height when they cut water weight for a fight? If so, by how much? When McGregor is weighing in at 145, very dehydrated, having potentially cut more than ten percent of his weight in water, do you think he would measure under 5'8"?
Editor Rob: hard to predict without testing, but under some circumstances like getting to a certain weight, I do believe a few mm lower than normal is entirely feasible.
anon said on 22/Oct/16
i can even see nate diaz morning 6'0.75" night 6'0". hard to give him 6'1" barefoot any time of day. his brother nick morning 6'0.5" night 5'11.75" for sure.
