Bob Sapp's Height
6ft 4 ¼ (193.7 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).

guys, he is saying tht he is 6´4 on both. 6.334 is 6 foot 4..............
Jkiller said on 21/Mar/20
6'4 1/4th is spot on, saying he's 6'5 is ridiculous.
OriginalAnon said on 19/Mar/20
I could buy 6'4.5" for Sapp.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jun/19
Interesting to know Bob claim 6'3 3/4 when he is a little over 6'4. Sometime he he pull off 6'4 1/2 rather than a flat 6'4. Listing here is legit.
kinder said on 3/May/19
he is 6ft 5

The mauler was 1 inch taller when he had shoes on and Sapp barefoot.Sapp could be 6 foot 4 flat

How tall do you think Peter Aerts is Rob? (please please this is important and your opinion matters to me)
Well if you see him with big Bob Sapp Click Here
, I think 6ft 2.5-3 is possible.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/18
Wonder why Bob downplay 6'3 3/4 where he was closer to 194cm.
Myself said on 10/Apr/18
@Jordan87 I never followed any celebrities and still don't, except some youtubers, and some occasional MMA fights. I know Bob Sapp just because he faced Alexander Emelianenko, a famous russian fighter.
To me he looks huge in that photo...taller than Sapp, or the angle is so deceiving + his footwear...
Alexander certainly doesn't look the height he is claiming at all...if Jon isn't even 193, Emelianenko can't be that mark either.
Jordan87 said on 5/Apr/18
You do not know who Jon Jones ( The black man dressed in red) is lol. He is 10 times more famous than Sapp.
Myself said on 6/Mar/18
@Christian-6'5 3/8 Hmmm, ok, then Alexander Emelianenko doesn't quite seem to be 193, maybe that's his height earlier in the day/morning.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 9/Feb/18
The “black man dressed in red” is Jon Jones. He’s nowhere near 198cm even when he’s wearing shoes, which he is in that pic.
said on 28/Jan/18
How tall would you guess Fedor and Aleksander Emelianenko on the left of Sapp in this photo (from our perspective) Click Here
Also how tall would you guess the black man dressed in red? I think about maybe 198 cm.

What do you think about adding Emelianenko brothers to the site anytime soon?

No way he's only 6-4, he made over 190 cm Remy Bonjasky look small same for Allistair Overeem, hard downgrader here
Well, he's stated being 6'4", and he clearly had 2-2.5" on Overeem.
said on 25/Nov/17
sorry for the double post but check this vid Click Here
I think it's clear he can't be 6-4

Hard to place him. Probably an honest claim, but I would otherwise believe a little higher.

194cm for max
hardguy said on 4/Oct/17
not that tall in person imo.. met a similar person
andre said on 27/Jul/17
Rob, bob sapp is the trickiest man to ever calculate his height. For example overeem is legit 6'3 and half ( I have seen him with over 10 6'3 fighters and he looked a bit taller than all of them). I also seen him with 6-7 6'4 fighters and he is a bit taller than some(werdum, bigfoot silva), and a bit shorter than others(jones, bonjasky), but with sapp, when overeem had around 1 cm more footwear, sapp seemed 4 cm taller than him, without the shoes will be a 5 cm difference. Also I have seen Sapp with jason mamoa and he looked 1 inch taller than him, both had the same footwear. But the image that shocked me the most is bob sapp with badr hari(6'6' listed, could be taller though) image in which hari was easily 3 1/2 inches taller than him. With jon jones he looked 1.5 cm taller than him.
My best guess for bob will be 6ft 4.5in.

Sapp '6.334 is 6'3-3/4 he mean. I can see he looks it.

Overeem and Sapp. What is Overeem's height? Could be anywhere from 190 to 195.
John said on 4/Feb/17
I met him a few days ago, he was taller than me and I'm 6'4. Looked a good 6'5.5.
nick92 said on 30/Jan/17
rob jon jones is taller than him id say giving him the benefit of the doubt id say 6ft4 flat at best
e said on 5/Dec/16
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.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 24/Nov/16
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.

He looks too damn tall to be under 194 cm .

Mathew Robinson (190 cm)

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.
said on 27/May/16
jones and sapp here: Click Here
and here a series of photos: Click Here
how tall jones looks close to sapp?
Editor Rob: wouldn't say Sapp looked that much taller, considering the camera nearer Sapp there.
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?
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.

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
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
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
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
said on 17/Jul/15
6'6" or 6'7" Tensai towered over Bob Sapp.
diamonddave7 said on 29/Oct/14
Rob is,spot on....I work in TSA and he came through my checkpoint today 10/29/14......He is still a beast at over 320 lbs,but had at least 4" of clearance under our 6'8.5" walk thru metal detector.......in shoes,he , is,6' 4.5 or,4.75".......celebheight was accurate on this person.....
said on 22/Dec/13Click Here
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.
said on 5/Jan/13Click Here
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

Gramps says 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
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).
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]
said on 1/Jan/13Click Here
Look at 21:37 in the video.. he's alot taller than listed/claim 6'5 overeem. Overeem is taller than lesnar.
said on 2/Feb/12
This guy is more like 6'3.5" or 6'4" max. Check him next to James Thompson (big guy):
In this video, barely looks taller than Thompson.
Now check James Thompson... He's 6'3" max (and LeBanner is probably 6'1").
Thompson next to 6'1" Mariusz Pudzianowski:
Next to 6'2" max Kimbo Slice:
He also looks 6'3" next to 6'4" max Brett Rogers.
Bob Sapp is 6'4" max.
said on 18/Jan/12
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.]

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.

yeh but 475 is impossible. Nearly as much as the Big Show.

when he fought in pride he was announced as being 6'7" 475 lbs.
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...

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....

Cro Cop is 188cm so 6'2. At minimum these days 187cm

He's even at 6'5" on some websites. He's really huge. I estimated him 6'6"-6'7".
ChrisC said on 16/May/09
Aki.. wow you're SO dillusional it's crazy. You're one of those crazy people on the forum who thinks every man has to be below your height or something. I'm no expert but I bet Sapp's way taller than 6'0.. don't let your ego dilute your mind. Think straight.. poor guy.
Ali said on 10/Apr/09
I think Bob Sapp is 6'4
Crocop is over 6 feet. About 6'1,not 6'2.
Fedor is slightly under 6 feet.
mId said on 24/Mar/09
Aki.. who are you referring too.. crocop?
Aki said on 21/Mar/09
No way. Met him twice. Hes 6ft at most. My dad is 182cm and I felt he was more or less the same as him. He looks massive, thou.
mId said on 4/Mar/09
yeah.. noguiera is at the lowest 6'2.. I even wanna say 6'2.5" at the lowest during the day.. and crocop said he is 186cm exactly.. yeah if he measured straight out of bed he would be 6' at night like me but no.. BAREFEET he was 1" taller than rampage when rampage had shoes on. they hug in the ring after crocop faught igor.. when they let go of the hug rampage is looking up at crocop a little.. besides I've seen them talk backstage both in shoes and crocop was like 1'5 inch taller.. but rampage had bigger shoes on than crocop. bob sapp seems 6'4" minimum. /greetings from sweden.
mmafan said on 22/Feb/09
CroCop is 6'1 not, 5'11.5
Dangler said on 21/Feb/09
Bob Sapp is definitely 6'4.25". He had about 1.25" on Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and about 5.5" on Mirko Cro Cop who is listed at 6'2" but looks more like 5'11.5" or a weak 6'0" at best.

Steve Segreto said on 21/Sep/08
I went to High School with Bob Sapp in Colorado Springs. He was a year ahead of me. In 1992 he was easily 6'4" and was the biggest guy in the whole school. He could curl nearly 100lbs in each hand with the free weights.
Jordan said on 30/Aug/08
If the NFL list him at 6'4 he cant possibly be anything taller. If anything the NFL gives players Height. I think he is 6'4 MAX. He even said he is 6'4, so why is he listed on this site as being higher ?
Paul said on 24/Aug/08
When I see him fight, it always said 6'7'' 375 LBS.
zedrein said on 10/Apr/08
Holy cow, if Bob speaks the truth then he has a 84" wing span (called 'reach' in the fight world) That's pretty amazing considering most men 6' 4" would only have a 76-80" reach.
Mychel said on 30/Mar/08
I'd say the estimation of Bob Sapp being 6'4.25" is dead on. He definitely looked like a solid 6'4" next to 6'0" Kazuyuki Fujita and 6'1" Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. He is an animal. It's too bad he couldn't take punches very well, or he would have won a lot more.
G-dawg said on 21/Feb/08
I went to the UW in the ninetees and actually lived on the same floor with Bob in Haggett Hall when he redshirted is Freshman year. Super nice guy. I even cut his hair once. At the time, he was listed at 6-3. But that was when he was 18, so I believe 6-4 to be accurate. But the guy was extremely wide. He was a mammoth. He borrowed a couple of my plates and never returned them, but I forgive him.
Fedor said on 7/Feb/08
Bob Sapp himself has stated that he is 6'4". The NFL listed him as 6'4" and for the NFL rarely ever lists anyone over their correct height. For the most part, the NFL and NBA tend to list athletes about an inch higher than their real height so 6'4" sounds right.
supersonic said on 22/Jan/08
I met Bob Sapp at the U of Washington gym one time. I'm a UW Husky alum and so is Sapp. He played football here. He is a huge man and my friend who is himself 6'0 1/2 described him as "the biggest guy ever."
He is not 2 meters tall. Definitely not 6'5 but taller than 6'3... so 6'4 sounds about right. I shook his hand and I'm exactly 5'10. He's huge though. He didn't look like the typical chubby college lineman. Rumors from the weight room said he could bench 560 using a more "closed grip" style! I think he played college ball at about 295-300 lb but after watching him on K1 he clearly put on at least 50 lbs.

He was listed at 303 as a football lineman, where he was gonna need size as much as anytime
sometimes this ain't the case, Ernie Holmes who played defensive tackle in the NFL was usually listed at 260-270lb there but when he finished playing his weight increased to around 400lb here is a picture of him today Click Here
bonjasky is 192cm tall so 6'3.5", sapp is a little taller.

I'd say he's at least 6'4.25". Closer to 6'5" in my view.

He probably is somewhere in between 6'3" and 6'5", but I don't doubt the 350 pounds. Regardless of height, Bob is one hell of a big guy.

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.

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!

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.

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.

He's got a drafted height:
"Bob Sapp, 6-4 3/8", so rounded down...

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.

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.

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
thelasttiger said on 13/May/06
The thing about Bob Sapp is he has really long arms. That could fool someone into thinking he is 6'7"
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

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.

If Akebono is 6-6, then Bob Sapp is no more than 6-3, look how much shorter he is than Akebono. 6-4+ with shoes, sure.Click Here
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.
mask said on 12/Jan/06
Yes The Man, and this photo with 6'6" Akebono to me is enough:
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!
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?
