Idk, thought he gave more of a 172 impression than 174.
Aaron zamora said on 19/Mar/16
How tall do you think Diaz is?
Vir said on 14/Mar/16
Looks like my link got broken somehow - here's Conor McGregor with 6'4" Conan O'Brien. Conor is wearing slippers as seen in other parts of the video (minimal to no height gain). Click Here
TheNotorious said on 14/Mar/16
A flat 5'8" seems a little harsh. His 5'9" listing doesn't seem that far fetched tbh, I'd say he easily pulls off 5'8.5"
Gaz said on 13/Mar/16
Any thoughts on Barao he gets listed mostly 5'6 but UFC but is the pretty much the same height as Aldo Click Here
Vir said on 13/Mar/16
Here's Conor here with 6'4" Conan O'Brien - Click Here Conor is seen in the video wearing slippers (virtually barefoot). Strong 5'9" for him at least.
MD said on 11/Mar/16
The difference between the two brothers is minimal from what I've seen.
Aaron zamora said on 10/Mar/16
Do you think that you can take a look at Nate and add a page for him? Which of the 2 brothers do you think is taller?
Levi said on 9/Mar/16
The more I see McGregor the more I think he deserves a upgrade, 174cm at least really Rob.
Original said on 9/Mar/16
Conor 174-175
Diaz 185
Jose Aldo 169-170
Junior31 said on 8/Mar/16
Hey rob just out of curiosity where did you get 5'8 from??
Editor Rob
after looking at him he gave that impression, although I wouldn't rule out chance of 174cm.
Aaron zamora said on 7/Mar/16
Do you have any idea of how tall Nate or his brother Nick is? Compared to Conor's height.
Andy 185cm said on 7/Mar/16
Nate Diaz looks 184cm. Hes taller than his brother Nick.
Kourosh said on 7/Mar/16
Nate is tall dude i will have him at 6'1 and his brother is about 5'11.5.

Im sad conor lost but props to the man showed up and accept the challenge.

he will be back stronger

great fight though
somebody new said on 6/Mar/16
yeah a Diaz page would be awesome. How tall would you estimate him to be, Rob ? Both brothers look same height
Editor Rob
not had time to look at him yet
Aaron zamora said on 6/Mar/16
Rob, Nate Diaz just beat Conor Mcregor today! He's listed as 6'0 and his brother Nick Diaz is listed as 6'0-6'1. Do you think that you can add a page on here for both of them or at least Nate for being the new champ! I would really appreciate it.
TJE said on 6/Mar/16
Page for Nate Diaz? Looks a strong 5'11 range. 5'11.25-11.5. Only fair since he beat McGregor.
Gaz said on 2/Mar/16
@Kourosh Yeah Brendan was right about Callen is obsessed with size lo. And is see Conor taller than 5'8 as well.
Josh said on 2/Mar/16
Looking at the face-off with Diaz, can see at least 3 inches difference - maybe 4 depending on camera angles and footwear Click Here , Click Here . Assuming Diaz is 6ft range (and he's being billed at 5' 10 for UFC 196 Click Here ) Mcgregor is likely around the 5' 8 1/2 mark.
BT said on 2/Mar/16
@Powerhouse: Nate might actually be one of the rare fighters who gets listed shorter than he actually is. I've seen him listed 6'0 most often, but 5'10, 5'11 and 6'1 has also been given in the past. Bryan Callen called Conor 5'9 tops and most likely nearer 5'8, and Nate "every bit of 6'1" after meeting him. Nate looks nearer 2 than 1 inch taller than DiCaprio as well, so near 6'1 is a reasonable shout.
randomdude said on 1/Mar/16
McGregor was wearing low healed sneakers we will see come weigh ins/fight nigth how many inches is between them I would say McGregors a strong 5'8 weak 5'9
O.J. said on 1/Mar/16
Conor is 5'9. He needs an upgrade
Powerhouse said on 29/Feb/16
You guys see Nate Diaz who is 6'0 tower over McGegor? McGregor looked to barely hit his eye level, he may have been under it. He looked 5'8 in comparison to 6'0 Diaz.
Gaz said on 29/Feb/16
@Kourosh Yeah i so that lol love big brown and Callen but that was a bit extreme arguing for ages over his height for ages lol Callen got really worked up ha
Kourosh said on 28/Feb/16
in here Click Here at 38:55 there is an interesting argument between them about how tall conor mcrgoer is. its fun to watch
Word1234 said on 24/Feb/16
Click Here

Rob how tall do you think Jose Aldo is?! Do you think the 5'7 claim holds up ?
Editor Rob
it depends on if Conor is 5ft 8 or more, if he's more then he might not be greatly under that 5ft 7 claim.
Deeebooy said on 2/Feb/16
He is also a lot slimmer in person its actually a bit of a shock lol
Deeebooy said on 2/Feb/16
Conor is 5'8 iv met him when we were both barefoot and we were bang on the same height!!!!
Rey said on 24/Jan/16
dos anjos seems more like a 5'7, mcgregor looks like he is an inch taller and he's just wearing boat shoes ,Dos anjos has dress shoes which probably give him a one inch and put him at 5'8
Gaz said on 21/Jan/16
Click Here as we can see with Dos Anjos v Pettis who is listed 5'10.
Gaz said on 21/Jan/16
I think Dos Anjos is 5'8. He has been listed 5'8 to 5'9 in past fights but looking at the stare down 5'8 makes more sense. I doubt Conor is over 5'9.
Levi said on 20/Jan/16
With 5'9" listed Rafael Dos Anjos who has a significant footwear advantage over McGregor: Click Here Click Here Click Here
BT said on 20/Jan/16
@an anonymous peach: He definitely is if Joe Rogan is "at least 5'7". Conor is taller than him even when he is barefoot and Rogan is wearing boots. I wouldn't go under 5'8.5, and personally I'm starting to believe 5'8.75 or 5'9 isn't impossible.
an anonymous peach said on 18/Jan/16
Could be a stronger 5ft 8
Dmax said on 15/Jan/16
Lol I saw them listed him at 5'11 in this video Click Here go to 1:38.
Gaz said on 8/Jan/16
After seeing the pic of Conor and Poirier face of barefoot and now his stare down with 5'10 listed Duffy Click Here It makes me think Conor is nearer to 5'9 or at least 5'8.5.
Just Saying said on 6/Jan/16
Click Here

If you watch the video of the weigh ins you can see marcus wearing only his red socks so they are both barefoot
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/16
"Conor McGregor's height is 5ft 8½in (174cm)"

At least a strong 5ft8. I think he'd be 5ft9 in the morning.
Gaz said on 2/Jan/16
Click Here Dennis Siver is listed 5'7 lol
Kourosh said on 2/Jan/16
i think Conor needs a slight upgrade to 5'8.5 (174cm). He is a 5'9sh because he was taller than Poirer by about inch.
Just Saying said on 30/Dec/15
Anybody seen the 5 foot 4 marcus brimage vs 5 foot 8? Conor mcgregor weigh ins? Definately not 5inch(12cm) between them as mcgregor claims
cole said on 30/Dec/15
@Powerhouse: Yeah I could agree with that, at least Conor is most likely nearer 5'9 than 5'8. If he's only 5'8 then Poirier is 5'7.75 at best, Cub is 5'5.75 (or was Poirier wearing shoes in their face off?) and Nick Jonas quite a bit shorter than near 5'7.
It could all just be circumstantial though and a variety of unnkown conditions could play a part, but still, I think Conor is taller than 5'8 flat.
Powerhouse said on 29/Dec/15
@cole Yeah Holloway is a legit 5'11, Dennis Siver is 5'5 range, Conor is 5'8.75 and likes big heeled footwear and has great posture, He'll also tilt his head up a bit during staredowns. He is very height conscious, he regularly calls opponents migets. Like Chad Mendes, Jose Also, Diego Brandao, and Dennis Siver, he's also called Faber and T.J Dillashaw migets. I mean he really did tower over those guys though, and those guys are all listed 5'6 or 5'7, the UFC listing are off quite often.
Gaz said on 29/Dec/15
A pic of Cub and Frankie Click Here Frankie was wearing shoes and Cub wasn't. i'm going to guess he is around 5'7.
MD said on 29/Dec/15
@deutsch,

While I'm one who think's this currently listing is probably closer than the 5'9" listing, on a site where we argue over quarter-inches, a full inch difference is definitely noticeable for folks like us who study this. I'll just chalk up your comment to you being new here.
cole said on 27/Dec/15
@Powerhouse: Well if that's the case then Max Holloway is at least 5'11, and subsequently Conor is at least 5'9.
deutsch said on 26/Dec/15
Why is everybody saying that 5'8 is too low? How can you even spot a one inch difference between a 5'8 and a 5'9 guy? Anyway, 5'8 is the reasonable claim, cause fighters heights are commonly exaggerated.
Nobody said on 26/Dec/15
Oh c'mon, no way is McGregor lower than 69 inches.Barefoot he stands at the same height as Joe Rogan with shoes, and had a 2 inch height advantage over 5'7" Aldo,
Gaz said on 25/Dec/15
@Cole yeah think you're right probably right looking at some pics with him and Max Click Here Click Here
cole said on 24/Dec/15
@Gaz: Cub looked somewhere between 3 and 4 inches shorter than Max Holloway, who's roughly 2 inches taller than Conor, so you could argue anywhere in 5'6-7 range.
Gaz said on 23/Dec/15
Anyone got an guesses on Cub Swanson? he was always listed 5'7 now when ever he fights he is listed 5'8 when ever he fights.
Eddy said on 22/Dec/15
This will soon be edited to 5'8.5+ guaranteed
Lucho said on 20/Dec/15
It's weird that he looked shorter than this with faber
Gaz said on 20/Dec/15
Urijah and Chad are both similar height Click Here Click Here Click Here Chad claims 5'5 and i think Uirjah had done so before but like a lot of fighters are listed an inch above there actual height and here is Urijah with 5'8 Cruz Click Here looks a 3 inch difference if i had to guess.
Idk said on 16/Dec/15
Whoever sad Faber is 5'4 is off. Also not shorter than mendes. Mendes in boots same height as Faber in flip flops
Idk said on 16/Dec/15
174 lowest. I've met urijah Faber multiple times, once with my 166 gf both were wearing flip flops and he edged her out. More than 2 inches between Faber and mcgregor
BT said on 15/Dec/15
@Editor Rob: Top should now say "Irish Mixed Martial Artist, currently the undisputed UFC featherweight champion" or something along those lines.
PFG said on 5/Dec/15
Clearly taller than this, he ia a legíctim 175 176 cm
hijopotamus said on 6/Nov/15
5'8" is too low. He looks 5'9 ish all right and he is 145lbs is his lowest at his weigh in. The rest of the year he must be around 165. He likes heel boots but has no height complex as he walks barefoot no problem. Great guy, very smart and very professional.
Gaz said on 5/Nov/15
What do people make of this picture of Conor with Arnold Schwarzenegger? Click Here Arnolds poster is not the best here but he is listed 5ft 11.5in on here.
Lmeister said on 5/Nov/15
I think Conor is 174-175cm. He doesn't look as low as flat 5ft8=173cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Nov/15
Looks a very strong 5ft8 guy
MD said on 5/Nov/15
I think so long as you guys are comparing him to other fighters, you're definitely going to think he's taller than this listing because all of them are listed incorrectly. The height could be changed if we get more pictures of him with celebrities of known height outside the sport to compare to. But comparing him to other fighters won't get us to far. It's completely possible that Conor was simply listed closer to his actual height than most others in the sport.
Powerhouse said on 4/Nov/15
@BT... Yeah I agree 5'8.5 is really the shortest he could be. The more I look at pictures and videos of him he does look too tall for a flat 5'8.
Gaz said on 4/Nov/15
@Rob2 i think 5'10 for Gsp tho i have seen him listed 5.9.5 once but i have seen him 5'11 as well.
Rob2 said on 2/Nov/15
Rob I'm surprised you don't have gsp on here. How tall do you think gsp and Rory macdonald are ???
Editor Rob
I've not really looked at them.
BT said on 2/Nov/15
@Powerhouse: Yeah I also think 5'8 flat could be a little too low, 5'8.5 is perhaps my best guess.
Powerhouse said on 2/Nov/15
Actually having just looked at some pictures and videos, Conor at 5'8 had in between 3.5- 4 inches on Dennis Siver at their staredown at the press leading up to their fight a while back. He consistently looks a solid 4 inches taller than Faber on the Ultimate Fighter, and looked close to 3 inches taller than Aldo in their press staredowns. Look up the photos of his pre fight preference conference staredowns. Unless he is slipping a small insert in his dress shoes 5'8 flat is unlikely, but 5'9 is too high.
Tom said on 31/Oct/15
Rob watch conor sparring with the mountain on youtube, u will have a good grasp on his height, because you have already met the mountain.

Gaz said on 31/Oct/15
I heard UFC are going to be measuring fighters leg reach now. I wish they would measure fighters heights!
Powerhouse said on 30/Oct/15
McGregor at a flat 5'8 means a 5'4 Faber, 5'6 Aldo, 5'5.5 Siver, and 5'5 Mendes. He really towers over the 5'6 and 5'7 billed opponents he has faced. The UFC as we all know often (not always) bill fighters 1 or 2 inches taller then they really are. This listing is right, Conor looks taller then he is, look at him in videos with 5'11 Dana White and 6'0 Chael Sonnen they are much taller. He is a short man fighting even shorter people.
Gaz said on 19/Oct/15
@WAF Now that you mention the possibility of him wearing lifts that might be true because i remember watching TUF not long ago with Conor and Urijah joking about and Urijah said to him something like so you're not wearing your high heels today lol. And yeah i would say 5'8.25"-5'8.5" at his lowest as well.
WAF said on 17/Oct/15
@Gaz

I did not, but I just checked him out - he is incredibly thin!

George Roop walks around at 150 lb and says he is healthy and energetic, so it might be the right weight class for him for now. I think he must be incredibly disciplined about his diet, even if he is naturally skinny and has a fast metabolism, etc.

As for McGregor's height, he certainly looks taller than 5'8", but he is also very lean (small waist - this is also partly genetic), appears to have relatively broad shoulders, wears tight-fitting clothing, and almost always wears dress shoes. From his behavior at weigh-ins, I think he thinks about height more than the average person (cf. weigh-in with Dennis Siver), so I wouldn't be surprised if he wears a small lift.

If I had to bet, though, I would say McGregor is around 5'8.25"-5'8.5" at his lowest. See him next to Joe Rogan after his latest fight: Click Here
Kourosh said on 2/Oct/15
People still criticizing Conor McGregor and doubt in his skills. He has TKO all of his opponents in first 2 rounds. The opponents aldo could not finish and got the victory
in his hands from split decisions. Aldo had 7 fights in UFC and 5 of them ended in decision. In contrast. Conor Mcroger had 6 fights in UFC and ended 5 of them by TKO in very first round. The only fight he took it to decision was against Max Holloway which he dominated him in all rounds.

I am not an aldo hater but i dont see anything in him that is superior to beat Conor McGroger.
but again anything can happen. Anyways, im so pumped up for this fight and i believe this fight has possibility to break the record in number of seats.

Conor 5'8 to 5'8.5 (173-174)

Jose 5'6.5 to 5'7 maximum. (169-170)
Gaz said on 1/Oct/15
@BT Click Here he claims 5'5 in this vid at 14:54 and claimed 5'5 again on the team alpha male podcast so it is possible he might not even be that.
Gaz said on 1/Oct/15
@WAF did you see George Roop the other night? 6'1 135lb didn't look good. The cut must be brutal for him. Yeah McGregor cuts a lot he looks like death at the weigh in it can't be good at all. think he wants to move up as soon as possible. Especially with the new iv ban.
BT said on 30/Sep/15
@Gaz: I didn't realize Mendes claimed 5'5! So he's more like 5'4 then, because he does look pretty much 4 inches shorter than Conor...

As for Aldo vs McGregor, it's going to be a great fight. I wouldn't say for sure McGregor will win, but I have a feeling he's going to be too "in your face" (the pressure he puts opponents under is insane) for Aldo to handle, and he probably will get the TKO/KO within 3-4 rounds. It's just my gut feeling at the moment. But Aldo is extremely tough and will be more prepared for Conor than what Mendes was (although one can never be fully prepared for Conor).
WAF said on 30/Sep/15
@Gaz

Well, almost no fighter fights in a weight class that is close to his actual weight (i.e. his weight when not cutting). Therefore, it's not unreasonable, although rare, for a 6'-1" man to be in the 145 lb division. By the way, if he is listed 6'-1", he is probably closer to 6'-0", and a lot of fit men at that height weigh around 170 lb.

McGregor himself weighs 170-172 lb when he is not cutting weight. He will probably move up to the 155 lb division within a year or so.
Gaz said on 25/Sep/15
@BT Mendes has claimed to be 5'5 twice now so i think we can say for sure he is not actually 5'6. Him and Urijah are both the same height as well.
Gaz said on 25/Sep/15
Aldo is mainly a stand up fighter these days but i wouldn't write of his ground game he is a legit Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt under André Pederneiras and had beaten some top guys in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He might think about using it after watching Conor v mendes. But that's if Conor gives him trouble of the feet first.
Gaz said on 25/Sep/15
He is one of the tallest in the division but the taller guys are Max holloway, charles oliveira and Cole Miller who is 6'1 that's really tall for a 145lb fighter lol
Kourosh said on 24/Sep/15
Conor's ground skills are non-existent? Did you watch his fight against Mendez? who is supposedly the best wrestle in the division. Chad was laying on Conor for entire 2 rounds and yet Conor deflected all of his wrestling moves and 2 of his 4 take-downs.

Since Aldo is a stand up fighter, Conor does not need to worry about the ground game which this would give him upper hand to finish the fight quickly as hes got the better reach than hose Aldo.
:D said on 20/Sep/15
He will get smashed by Aldo , Connor's ground skills are non-existent.
Kourosh said on 11/Sep/15
71'' is like 5'11 right?how is that possible a 5'8 like conor measured 5'11? i dont get it.

3 inches is so big
Editor Rob
I've no idea, but I heard the guy's already fielded about a thousand calls from a man in the Bronx, NY who wants to be measured like Conor!
BT said on 8/Sep/15
@Editor Rob: At around 01:30 in this video: Click Here the guy calls out "71" when measuring his height and "72" when measuring his reach. That 71 inch height bit is total bogus, but a 72 inch reach is certainly more believable than 74 for a 5'8-9 guy. He looks 5'9 or a little less compared to other fighters even if we knock an inch off their listings/claims, but then maybe some fighters are listed nearer 2 inches over their real height.

Conor looks about 2.5-3 inches taller than Aldo and about 3.5-4 inches taller than Mendes, so Mendes is definitely no more than 5'5, and I doubt Jose Aldo is much over 5'6. I would say 5'8.5 is a fair shout for Conor.
Editor Rob
that's the guy BIG G wants to be measured by...wouldn't surprise me if he put his foot on a couple of inches of that tape measure to hold it steady :)
Dingus said on 29/Aug/15
I think he is 5'08.50", give or take one quarter inches in either direction.
Kourosh said on 20/Aug/15
i thought so. Even though their top of heads are seem to be even but when it comes to eyelines , there is difference between them as the black fighter is looking at middle of nose.

This tells us it is not a trustworthy way of comparing ourselves with those who close in our heights, since it gives illusion of being shorter or taller when top of heads look even.

Thank you rob.
Kourosh said on 18/Aug/15
hi rob, whats height difference between this two fighters :Click Here

Both of them listed 5'10 on UFC official website
Editor Rob
doesn't really look much between them.
HB said on 4/Aug/15
5'9 seems legit. Wouldn't go lower than 5'8.5
Gaz said on 24/Jul/15
Click Here posted the wrong link to Chad Mendes claiming 5'5
Gaz said on 24/Jul/15
yeah only look an inch in that pic
Kourosh said on 23/Jul/15
@Gaz conor looks an inch taller than him so he is 5'8 there max.
Gaz said on 22/Jul/15
Click Here not the best pic but here is Conor with 5'7 John Howard but you can't see there feet
Gaz said on 20/Jul/15
Yeah Cormier is not 5'11 because he has said before that he is 5'10
Gaz said on 20/Jul/15
Chad Mendes also claims 5'6 in one video and then 5'5 in another video Click Here at 14:52 so wouldn't take claims to seriously
Josh1 said on 18/Jul/15
It´s hard to tell but he does look more 5'8 than 5'9
IronFist said on 17/Jul/15
He claims 5'9 at 1:55 in this video: Click Here
Kourosh said on 16/Jul/15
@Gaz true. Fighters' height listed on UFC are totally bogus. For example, Daniel Cormier listed 5'11 but he was easily 2.5 inches shorter than Arnold Schwarzenegger and barely taller than Conor at UFC 178 press conference.
don said on 16/Jul/15
5'8 is exactly right...He has big hair and walks like a robot all the time so He doesnt lose height...he is very insecure about his height
Gaz said on 15/Jul/15
@Kourosh Yeah no way can i see him under 5'8 maybe 5'8.5 but rounds up to 5'9. I don't know he is a tough one because he is so lean it makes him look taller. I still think he is closer to 5'9 though but you can never be sure with fighters heights.
Kourosh said on 15/Jul/15
@ Gaz i agree with you. There is no way this guy is under 5'8. 5'8 is the worst he can be but i go with about 5'9 174 - 175 cm.

He looked max 2 inches shorter than dana white who i think is close to 5'11 :

Click Here
Gaz said on 13/Jul/15
People who think he is under 5'9 how do you determine his height and who are you comparing him to? or do you just think he doesn't look 5'9?
Verba said on 12/Jul/15
"[Editor Rob: I believe he can look nearer 5ft 8 than 9]"

Care to share your reference points @Rob?
The Truth said on 12/Jul/15
Lol don't use other ufc fighters to determine mcgregor's real height. We all know that most ufc fighters' heights are exaggerated.
Height183 said on 12/Jul/15
I still don't think he is quite 5'8'', I'm sure Rob will measure taller than this guy! Upper 5'7'' range for me. Very close to 5'8'' though.
Junior31 said on 11/Jul/15
I haven't seen one Fighter the UFC list correctly. Seriously. There all over the place. So much so they will bill and re bill fighters heights based upon there opponents.
areyouserious said on 11/Jul/15
What is with this site and people claiming way under the height they actually are. 5'7.75? Are you serious?
EzioAuditore711 said on 10/Jul/15
He really looks 5'9''. I don't buy 5'8''. Are you absolutely sure he's not 5'9'' Rob?
NateTheGreat said on 10/Jul/15
5'9 is right on the chin
Gaz said on 10/Jul/15
The ring announcer in cage warriors says 5'8 Click Here that doesn't mean much the UFC had him at 5'11 on the Dublin card now he is back to 5'9. We Should not take to seriously what fighters get listed by combat sports organizations.
Height183 said on 10/Jul/15
Rob, 5'7.75'' isn't impossible is it? I reckon you'd be a little taller than him.
Editor Rob
I doubt he's sub 5ft 8, he looks a decent enough 5ft 8
Kourosh said on 10/Jul/15
He is about 2 inches shorter than 5'11 dana white. solid 5'8 or weak 5'9 for conor. Conor is a proof that how a propotion of a body is important how to make your height more appealing. Hes got long legs, long torso and long arms witg fantastic shape that makes him taller than he is. I used to believe the 5'11 listing because of his long body frame. I know people that are 5'11 to 6'0, but because of their horrible body propotion they appear much shorter than they are.
cole said on 10/Jul/15
@Editor Rob: Nice to see a page for him, although I'd say 5'8 flat is a bit harsh. Looks nearer 5'9 I think, 5'8.5 could be on the money.
MD said on 10/Jul/15
I don't mean to be rude, but who cares what he was listed at somewhere else? People are listed as all kinds of heights over the internet. That's not good proof of anything.
NateTheGreat said on 10/Jul/15
No way he is 5'8 believe me in Cage Warriors he was listed 5'11. This dude is clear 5'9 or even 5'9.5
Josh said on 9/Jul/15
Hey rob, how tall do you think is chad mendes?
Height183 said on 9/Jul/15
Look about 5'8''. Fair listing. I honestly thought he was shorter.
MD said on 9/Jul/15
I said he walks around at 165lbs, but I guess he's claimed (second hand) to be walking around at 172lbs as of his most recent fight preperations:

Click Here

Now, this claim might be a bit of a mind-game to intimidate, but, yeah, he's bigger than almost anyone else in his weight class, and carries it well and looks very proportional which probably what helps him to get away with his height claim.
Kourosh said on 7/Jul/15
174-175 cm for Conor. He will be the champion. The most entertaining UFC fighter ever. Cant wait for July 11th.
Aldo is 168 cm
Mendez is 165 cm
IronFist said on 7/Jul/15
I heard Joe Rogan arguing with Bryan Callen the other day about Conor's height. Joe tried to say Conor is 5'11 but they looked it up and Bryan's claim of 5'9 was "verified" by Google.

I think we should be very skeptical to take Joe's word for anything height related, as I argued in my last post on his page here.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jul/15
This guy reminds me of one of those hard as nails Irish bare knuckle boxers from the 19th century.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jul/15
Actually looks like he could be Ewan McGregor's brother though doesn't he.

Glad to see him added. I knew his height wasn't hugely off his listing. It kind of surprised me people thought he was his listing or even a bit taller, though. Maybe, it has to do with the fact that he's one of the bigger guys in his weight classes. Apparently, he walks around at around 165lbs, which is twenty pounds above his current weight classes limit. Most of the other guys in his class are apparently usually much shorter and naturally lighter.

@Rob, what you really mean to say is Conor is 6 ft not 5 ft 8, ahem!! ;-) he'd be devastated with 5'11.98, let alone 5 ft 8!

Rob why do you think he's only five foot eight and not nine

This is what he was listed at early in his career, and this is what he looks like next to Chael Sonnen. Conor at 5'8 makes Jose Aldo about 5'5 seeing as Conor had 3 inches on him.

He has said numerous times that he is 5'9". Why is he listed at 5'8", Rob?
Editor Rob
I believe he can look nearer 5ft 8 than 9

I think that this is a fair listing

Great body proportions, very slim and lean gives him a tall look. As we suspect most athletes heights are inflated by an inch or two, so give as he is listed as 5'9, 5'8 is probably fair, but can definitely give the appearance of looking taller when fighting.
