Good peak height reem abused his body for 20yrs.

Always ludicrously overrated. He doesn't look over 189cm. I can't ever remember looking at him and thinking 6'3''. 6'5'' is insane.

No low

@Duhon the formatting of that poster is infuriating

6'3" Lesnar vs 6'5" Overeem Click Here
Chaoscontrol 6'2.75/190cm said on 20/Dec/21
I don’t know what drugs they were on when they listed him 6’5. He looks 6’2.75-6’3 range
Space said on 17/Dec/21
He looks 6’2.5” at the most next to Joshua. I’d put him at 6’2.25” 250lbs in that photo.
Duhon said on 14/Dec/21
I think he looks around 6'3" next to Anthony Joshua here Click Here
Reem said on 13/Dec/21
6’2.75” -6’2.5”

Lwgit 6'3, needs an upgrade.
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 11/Jul/21
@Nik Alistair is usually billed 6’4 by UFC. Funny thing is Francis Ngannou is billed (and legitimately) 6’4 and he looked a solid inch taller when they fought
Nik Ashton said on 8/Jul/21
@ Rob - How tall is his brother Valentijn?

Alistair was born on the 17th May 1980 and he is listed as 6’5” online, his Mum Clair is Dutch!

Editor Rob
could be a bit shy of Alistair
ChaosControl 6'2.50 said on 8/Jul/21
Average guess is on point
Max Green said on 28/Jun/21
no way he that short, way to close to jon jones and ngannou
CZV said on 28/Mar/21
Hey Robcop at what height would you list this 2 guys. In the first picture they're barefoot, second one not quite sure Click Here
Editor Rob
can go from 4 inch range to about 3...maybe the second photo is getting closer to how they really look apart.
184guy2 said on 7/Mar/21
Overeem is 100% a 190flat guy or 6'2.75
not sure on Shawne , who can look over 6'3 at times and just 6'2 others
viper said on 6/Mar/21
Looks a bit like Shawne Merriman, even frame size
Crane said on 2/Mar/21
This one is right. Great list, Rob.

He was 2.5-3 cm taller than the one foot Tip-Toed 187cm Lesnar.

There was a 2009 page in Dutch included his own measurement during Pride-Dream era, he was placed at 190 cm and 92.9 kg respectively.

It sucks back then there’re many good pages you could access, now it all broken links or got removed.
184guy2 said on 26/Feb/21
Do you think Alexander Volkov could be the 6'7 that he is billed ? He was once billed 6'6 in Bellator but to me looks 100% closer to 6'7

Editor Rob
not so sure on Volkov
hydra said on 27/Jan/21
Something is not right here... Brock Lesnar is listed at 6’2” yet Overeem is listed at 6’2.75”? You mean to tell me Overeem isn’t even an inch taller than Lesnar when it’s clear he has him by nearly two inches?

There isn’t enough proof to conclude he’s below 6’3” at all, you should take highs over lows especially when there are more highs than lows, like in this case. He edges Jon Jones, is edged by Ngannou who is listed at 6’4”, has Lesnar by at minimum 1.5” and dwarfs Oleinik who is listed at 6’2”.
fddf said on 23/Dec/20
@makd, steroid use does not shrink you and Overeem does not have any postural problems in any way. He is 6'3/190cm.
Lomax said on 13/Dec/20
He’s like the same height as Francis and bones Jones
aero said on 14/Oct/20
He is 6’3” tall at a MINIMUM. Any lower than that would simply be wrong.

Here he is with 6’3.75” Jon Jones, he appears to be taller: Click Here

Here he is with 6’1.5”-6’2.0” Lesnar: Click Here

Within 0.25-0.75” of 6’4” Ngannou:
Click Here

This angle favors Francis yet Overeem still holds up very well: Click Here

He appears to be taller than Jon Jones, is significantly taller than Lesnar (1.75”-2”) and holds up extremely well with solid 6’4” Ngannou. A 6’2.5” individual would not look like that next to Francis. He’s 6’3” at a minimum, an upgrade is in check.
makd said on 20/Jul/20
I met him once in a bodybuilding event in Germany. He wasn't 6'3, 6'4 or 6'5, lol
Overeem was never above 190 or 6'2 3/4.
Even his prime form 99-11, Overeem was a little bit taller than 187 cm Brock Lesnar.
The feet system is stupidly nonsense. I'll use cm. O
Overeem was 189 cm back during those days but has shrunk a bit down to 188 nowadays mainly due to years of steroid abuse and age.

The right answer is Alistair Overeem height is 189 cm or 6'2 1/2
tbo316 said on 11/Jun/20
I seen him fight live and had a front row seat. He walked right by me and I was shocked that he wasn't taller in person. I'm a true 6'3'' and I could tell I was taller than him. He's a 6'2'' guy for sure.
OriginalAnon said on 19/Mar/20
Excellent listing, Rob. The 6'5'' listings on Overeem were absurd. Some say he's 6'2'', but I have him at 6'2.5''. He's almost the exact same height as Lesnar. 6'3'' is too high for Overeem.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/20
6ft3 isn’t impossible, 6ft2 flat is unlikely and below impossible
Murtuza said on 11/Feb/20
Rob time to update it because the average guess is 6’3” (190.5cm)
Jkiller said on 25/Jan/20
6'3 is accurate for overeem
K.A said on 20/Dec/19
Solid 190 guy he reminds of Emperor Adriano (Brazilian footballer) .
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Nov/19
Rob, from your impression does 6'3 to be rule out for Overeem?
Editor Rob
It's arguable, but 6ft 4 is not arguable.
Space said on 17/Sep/19
6’1.75” for a low for Overeem. He used to be 6’2”-6’2.5” back in Pride/K1.

@ hernandez
He means Overeem used to be 265lbs, and is now around 245lbs...
Johan 185cm said on 23/Aug/19
115-116 kilo at his best. Out of his own mourh on dutch tv. So he was around 255 pounds.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Aug/19
He may have weighed at 245, but maybe rebounded 20 lbs by the time he fights.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Aug/19
Overeem is not 265. 245 he get weigh i saw twice. Solid 190cm and 245.
Importer said on 15/Jul/19
Claiming 196cm at 190cm. That would mean I'm 188cm at 182cm. (I wish)
TheBat said on 30/Jun/19
Nowhere near his 6'5" billing. 6'2.75" at the highest.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jun/19
I bet he could be measure 6'3 from a doctor office around 10-11am just like Chris Hemsworth. 6'2.75" a low.
Randomdude9999 said on 20/Apr/19
Hey Rob

how tall do you think the guy he just beat, his name is Aleksei Oleinik

he is listed as 6'2 but looked about 3-4 inches shorter than Alistair

he also looked the same height as 5'10 Mark Hunt but he does have terrible posture

I personally think he is in the 5'11 range I think 6'2 or even 6'1 is crazy for him
Space said on 26/Mar/19
He’s always been a 6’3”-6’2” guy. He was 6’3” during his pride and k1 fights years back. He was 6’3” 255-260lbs during pride/k1/strikeforce. He started to loose alittle height and size around 2013 and is about 6’2” flat 245lbs now.
Ronda said on 10/Mar/19
Overeem was 3/4” taller than Lesnar at the most. Lesnar was 6’2” Overeem like 6’2.5” then.
Randomdude0000 said on 1/Mar/19
Lesnar and Overeem did look close, Overeem only looked about 1/2 inch taller than Lesnar in the weigh ins staredown BUT Lesnar was posting on one leg which can give close to an inch in height, if Lesnar was standing flat like Alistair there would be a bigger difference

Rob did a video on it just today(as when this was posted) - Click Here
SomeoneIsHere said on 2/Nov/18
He can't be taller than Lesnar, when they had a staredown their heights were almost identical.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Jun/18
Click Here Tallest girl was my friend standing next to Overeem, shes a model standing at legit 5'10 1/2 wear a 1/2 flats that day. Overeem had solid inch sneakers that day look near 6'4 with her. 6'2 3/4 is the most legit listing. She quote that he look 190cm too.
Sonny Black said on 29/Apr/18
I’d say Overeem’s 6’3 even. When he stands next to Jones he’s about the same height and I have Jones at 6’3 1/4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Apr/18
Overeem - 6ft2⅞(190.1cm)
Lesnar - 6ft2⅛(188.3cm)

Rob, how does that sit with you?
Editor Rob
They're figures that could be possible measurements.
Jordan87 said on 5/Apr/18

No He is not 2" taller than Lesnar. Much less, look again.
Rebel said on 8/Mar/18
my girlfriends dad met him in usa he is former boxer 6'4 260 lbs big dude .He said me Alistair is shorter than me but taller than you.ı am 188. i think alistair is 190
Lomax said on 20/Feb/18
He's two inches taller than Lesnar
Blahh said on 11/Feb/18
It’s weird how height works. One day I can look as low as 5’11” then next day I look a solid 6’2”. I’d say overeem was a real 6’3.5” 260lb prime and just under 6’2” 245 today.
205 said on 31/Jan/18
Miocic: 192 cm
Santos: 188 cm
Mir: 187 cm
Original said on 25/Jan/18
190 makes sense.
777 said on 17/Jan/18
Rob, Alistair Overeem height - 193 cm

Vlad said on 12/Jan/18
- For Cain Velsquez i would say he's 6'0.5 minimum from this picture next to Ronaldo Click Here
- Dos Santos i believe is 6'2.5 or 6'2.75 max, he looked pretty much the same height as Overeem in the weigh in, didn't look that much taller than Cain and also just a fraction taller than Lesnar
Click Here
- But i believe Stipe Miocic might be a legit 6'4, and Ngannou is pretty much the same height from what i saw in the recent staredown
Click Here
And not sure about Mir and Big Nog, but my guess would be, 6'1.5/6'1.75 for Mir, and 6'2/6'2.25 for Nogueira, Big Nog looked just slightly taller than Mir, and Mir looked slightly shorter than Lesnar.
Represent said on 28/Dec/17
Overeem in his prime (2009-2012) was a legit 6’3.25”- 6’3” 260-265lbs. “On p.e.d.s”

Overeem today is a legit 6’2.25”- 6’2” 240-245lbs. “Post p.e.d.s”

On this thread, the average guess for his height is 6’3.03” which is correct for his prime/peak. I suggest they change it to a “peak height” and “current height” as he has significantly shrunk in size since 2012. He’s shrunk in height/size about as much as Dave Bautista has who did p.e.d.s. in his prime. Although guys like Brock Lesnar and The Rock have used p.e.d.s and they do not look like they have shrunk in height/size from cycles of p.e.d.s, only continued to grow.
WF said on 31/Oct/17
Peak should be a little over 6'3.
cascard said on 25/Oct/17
solid 190cm
Junior said on 20/Oct/17
Just accurate listing and i think Bob Sapp a little taller than 6'4.25".
Johan said on 10/Oct/17
I have seen Alistair in person and from that encounter i guessed 6'3". Ofc 6'2.75-6'3.25" is also a possibility, I wouldn't have said he was only 6'2.5" he looked taller than my friend.

Thetruth said on 7/Oct/17
you need to make a peak height then, For sure he was taller than this in his pride days! consistently looked taller then his 6'3 opponents.
Powerhouse said on 6/Oct/17
No, I wouldn't put him under 6'3.
Sonny Black said on 6/Oct/17
He seems about the same height as Jon Jones, maybe half an inch shorter. I’d say Reem is a solid 6’3 flat outta bed.
berta said on 6/Oct/17
i think its pretty safe to say he is probably not as low as 189 cm and there is a little chanse thata he is 192. Its either 190 or 191. i personally think he could be a fraction over this. 2 cm taller than lesnar who most think is littel over 188. Lesnar about 188,5 and this guy 190,5. My second guess is 188 vs 190.
miko said on 5/Oct/17
Anonymous is definitely Mr Height Loss.

Overeem is a weak 6'3.
MarquesYoung said on 5/Oct/17
He about 6'4 they measure your height with out shoes so he's naturally 6'4
CNROM89 said on 5/Oct/17
Good listing. he is a bit taller than Lesnar.
Kourosh said on 5/Oct/17
he was way taller than lesnar. 6'3 at least
Ken said on 5/Oct/17
Hes 6ft 4 at least, hes taller than most 6ft 4listed, 6ft 3.5 minimum

canor Macgwegor said on 3/Oct/17
If he is 6'2" then that means all the other ufc fighters that are listed as 6'3"-6'4" are also shorter.

I think he is at least 6'3", he seemed a bit taller than brock who is just below 6'3"

Brock is MAX 6'2" flat. Met the man in Vegas a few years ago.

Overeem and Lesnar looked exactly the same height at the weight ins.

5'12"? Really? You realize you don't say 5'12", right?" You say 6'0". And it's WEIGH-in, not weight in.
DRK said on 4/Oct/17
Where do you come up with 6'2.75"? It's just simply wrong. He is 6'4" and there is plenty of evidence to support this. Shouldn't a height website be the most accurate place of all?
Editor Rob
it's an estimate, not a measurement. Although both are 6ft 4 in the UFC, so I'm sure you agree those guys are the same height...
Anon2 said on 4/Oct/17
I'd say 6'2.75'' for Alistair is more accurate than 6'3''. Brock lesnar looked about 2cm shorter than him.
5'12 said on 4/Oct/17

berta said on 4/Oct/17
he is not 3 cm shorter than jon jones. He is almost the same height but i personally bielve jon jones is no taller than 192 so lets say 192 for jones and this guy 190,5
Anonymous said on 4/Oct/17
he's 6'3 min, hes almost Jon jones height and his almost the same height as a 6'4 werdum
Anonymous said on 3/Oct/17
ROB this is definitely not overeems peak height. Look at his old pride fights, he consistently looks taller then his 6'3 opponents
2toes said on 3/Oct/17
Around 191 cms. Do Stipe Miocic, Rob.
Ronald said on 3/Oct/17
I would say he's more Dutch than English, since was raised in the Netherlands and has lived there for most his life.

6'2" max.
