Big Rob I don’t think this is right. He is taller then khabib, who looked 176cm next to Mike Tyson. Cormier is no less then 5’10 he just looks short because of his build


khabib seems to be rather 174cm

go to his page and read what we are discussing

Rob do you think it is possible that Daniel Cormier is my height ? 176cm afternoon-evening . you think it is possible that he might fall to 176cm ? what do you think ?
Editor Rob
I think often he looks 5ft 9.5 to 10 range, more than 9-9.5
c-mo said on 28/Mar/19
rob look at this he is standing together with 182cm Joseph Fiennes : Click Here

if Joseph Fiennes is 182cm as listed how tall does DC look next to him ?
Editor Rob
There's maybe an inch or so between them there, but are they similar posture or not? Chance of Joe having little worse.

@christian 6’5”+

5’9” flat for Cormier, I agree with you. The square off with weak 6’1.75”-6’2” Lesnar in chunky heel boots confirmed it.
c-mo said on 12/Mar/19
I am so happy that he is close to my height :D
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 9/Mar/19
Brock wore cowboy style boots, or some other boots with a chunky heel, so he had probably close to a 2 inch footwear advantage, because DC was barefoot. He still looked nothing over 5'9" though.
maa said on 8/Mar/19

Yeah, I was aware. But have you ever see a 5 ft 10 man without shoes that does not reach the chin of a 6 ft 2 man in 1 in shoes?? Or DC is a weak 5 ft 9 and Brock over 6 ft 2 or it could be impossible....
Deniz said on 7/Mar/19
@maa Lesnar was wearing dress shoes (adds 1 inch to Lesnar) and DC was barefoot
maa said on 22/Jan/19
He looks a little midget for the HW division. Always thought that he was around 177 cm, but if Jon Jones is not a solid 6 ft 4, he must be shorter than 176 cm...
Also, he didn't even reach Lesnar chin in the octagon interwiew.... Could he be 5 ft 9???
Edups said on 17/Dec/18
I honestly think he is a strong 5'10.
michael loughrie said on 21/Nov/18
I'm not a height person, but he doesn't look any shorter or taller than most fighters, but it doesn't matter. He is still a great athlete even if he was 6' 5" or 5' 8".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Nov/18

What are you talking about? He's clearly short for a heavyweight, and most guys in the division tower over him. He's short even for a light heavyweight.
michael loughrie said on 11/Nov/18
He is 5' 11", seems tall next to most fighters.
SilentFire said on 23/Oct/18
rob how tall does he look here next to bisping Click Here ?
Editor Rob
The difference varied through the clip from as little as 2 range to 3...I think he overall looked above 6ft flat with Daniel.
maaa said on 18/Oct/18
How tall is Dana White ? A strong 5 ft 10?

Btw DC looks 176-177 cm no more. With big Guys like Lewis, Miocic, Lesnar and Jones, he looks a midget.
Editor Rob
5ft 10.25 might be a reasonable guess
ConorFan. said on 17/Oct/18
Rob you've messed up here imo (no offence). There is clearly more than a Centimetre difference between DC and Khabib. (I've linked pics numorous times) more around 3cm range i believe. So either you downgrade Khabib to 174.5cm (meaning Conor would also get an 1-2cm downgrade) or upgrade DC to 178.5cm which would even out the ratio because this doesnt make sense any other way.
Editor Rob
You could argue Cormier looks near 5ft 1 though he was honest enough I think saying barely 5ft 11 in footwear....but look at khan in with a robust 5ft 10 range Tyson...he looks a decent 5ft 9 range
saltyfish(177cm) said on 10/Oct/18
This guy is minimum 178cm, a solid 5'10
Ray man said on 8/Oct/18
I am mean i don't really think he's 5'9.75 i think dana is more close to that and dc is just a little under it, may have lost a couple cms.
Guest66 said on 25/Sep/18
I feel like he somewhat downgrades himself honestly, cause he fights in a heavyweight division where everyone is 6’3” on average and that’s where 5’10” guy will feel himself small. Just like in Tyson’s case, when called himself a midget stacking against these tall dudes. Anyway, to me DC looks close enough to 5’10”.

The baddest man on the planet and one of the greatest fighters to have ever lived.
berta said on 2/Sep/18
ok they guy claims that he is at best 180 cm when he have shoes on with big heel. big heel is 3cm or maybe more. that means that he is about 176,5 cm If we go with his claim.He is either the listed height o 1/4 under it
sb said on 2/Aug/18
I always root for this guy due to his quite extreme size disadvantages in the weight classes he fights at. It is extremely surprising when you see him next to feather weights and light weights and such, who can often look significantly larger than him. Though of course those are deep classes filled with people who cut extreme amounts of weight.

I think 5'9.5 is dead on, may have been over 5'10 in the past but he's had a long career so no doubt lost a little height anyway.
Animus said on 1/Aug/18

He also could be barefoot or in slippers in that picture

Don't you think he looks shorter than 5'10 with Arnold Click Here
Editor Rob
He can look 5ft 9 at times...but as has been mentioned, he's not exactly a man with the most impeccable of postures.
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 12/Jul/18
And I'll add this : he has very bad posture most of the time, so his claim could be " regular " posture height..
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 12/Jul/18
@Guest66 No way Hendo is below 5'10".
I'd guess him to be between 5'10 and 5'11.. probably was his billed 5'11 in PRIDE days..

Source : I rolled with him 10 years ago (so barefeet). No way he was below 5'10 and I'd guess him closer to 5'11.. I had a pic but I can't find it at the moment, sadly..

As far as DC is concerned I'd guess him at 5'10, that's what he was billed in the Olympics
Joe Joe said on 9/Jul/18
As I've said before I've heard DC claim 5'10 from his own mouth so I'm not sure why the UFC bill him at 5'11 I think this listing you have here Rob is spot on as I saw him posing with 5'8 Terence Crawford and there was hardly any difference to them.

Watch this vid at 6:41 where DC say I'm "5'11 at best and in my tall shoes" He has never paid any lip service to the nonsense height the UFC put out and is pretty honest about his height.

Kourosh said on 4/May/18
so my estimation was not far off i gave him 176.5 based how he looked to me.
Sonny Black said on 4/May/18
This is about right for DC, no where near the 5’11 UFC bills him at. My guess would be 5’9 flat based off of how tall he looks next to a 5’7 flat Dominic Cruz.
Shaq said on 14/Apr/18

khabib is not the same height as either gsp or dc

Click Here

Click Here

he's not very far though. 176 cm is a decent guess. with DC they are both barefoot and standing straight and he's about 1 cm shorter and with GSP footwear is unclear, he's a bit closer to the camera and GSP leaning a bit more.
mike said on 9/Apr/18
Do Khabib, hes a legit 176.5 imo. There's a pic of him with Conor and he's taller. He's also the same height as DC and GSP(videos and photos).
Guest66 said on 9/Apr/18
How tall is Henderson then Rob ?

They look very close to me, but Cormier has somewhat low eye level I guess.
Editor Rob
Daniel can potentially look taller.
joe joe said on 9/Apr/18
Cormier has never claimed 5'11. The UFC has him down as that but he has always said he's 5'10 in public. I think he's closer to 5'9. I saw a pic of him with 5'8 Terrance Crawford and they looked about the same height in similar footwear

Noize MC said on 8/Apr/18
I think DC is 176 cm. In pictures with Dominick Cruz who is in 171-172cm range there is not big height difference


I am 176cm and when I stand next to guys who are 171-172cm there is quite a difference . dont play it down . it is as much of a difference as I am to 180-181cm . I hate this double standard
Guest66 said on 8/Apr/18
If Khabib is 174cm then GSP is 175cm, and Conor is 171-2cm. But as you can see Rob didn’t list them that low, and I agree with him. However, I still think DC can be 5’10 flat.

He can look between 5'9 and 5'9.5
Ali183 said on 7/Apr/18
My brother and my friends met Habib and have pics together, trust me he is 174 maximum, I myself was surprised too, always thought he was 5'10. Cormier for me is 176, max holloway looks more than an inch tallet than hin
Levi said on 6/Apr/18
Khabib is ~ 175cm or so. 1cm taller than Conor McGregor. I'd peg Cormier between 177-178cm. Around a inch taller than Khabib
JB - 5'9 said on 6/Apr/18
No way I always just assumed he was 5’11. He kind of looked it too...
doc.anthony said on 6/Apr/18
173~175cm . jeff monson , dustin poirier is similar to cormier . he is short but has very good kickboxing skill and wrestling skill.
Johan said on 6/Apr/18
5'9.5 in my opinion rob.
Al said on 6/Apr/18
Khabib looks more than 174cm with Mike Tyson
MD said on 6/Apr/18
Closer to 5'9" than 5'10" for sure.
Powerhouse said on 5/Apr/18
I think 5’9.5 is a better fit.
Bigshaq said on 5/Apr/18
Fantastic listing
Tiger Li said on 5/Apr/18
177 is reasonable. I guess he is 178 when he gets up. Rob, can you put on Cain's height?
Guest66 said on 5/Apr/18
Rob, I think 5'10 flat will do him justice. I honestly thought he was more of a 178-9cm guy, and seeing him listed sub 5'10 is a little harsh I think. And no way Khabib is only 174cm that's for sure, he is pretty much exactly same height with GSP, maybe 1cm shorter. I say at least 5'9.5 for Khabib.
Nein said on 5/Apr/18
Thanks for adding him!
another ufc champion you should do is the welterweight champion Tyron Woodley who is listed 5'9
but can look as short as 5'7 3/4 ~ 5'8 range.

Rob, if Khabib is 174cm, then how tall does Demetrious Johnson look with him here?
Editor Rob
Johnson claimed "height 5'3" weight 140.5lb", but might be a bit shy of that mark.
MDV said on 5/Apr/18
Well, 5 ft 9.5 I think that fits him better....A lot shorter than Jon Jones in staredowns

He looks short most times. Maybe 5'9


thanks for calling me short bra

Cormier is a tricky guy posture wise, he can look as short as 5ft 9, but sometimes can pull off 5ft 10.
ConorFan. said on 5/Apr/18
I get why you put Daniel as 5'9 3/4 Rob, but now that leaves the question of how tall is Khabib Nurmagomedov who is much shorter than Daniel but is listed as 5'10 (pictures of DC and Khabib. Link: Click Here | Click Here | Click Here ). Keep in mind Daniel hunches over in some of these pics. Im thinking Khabib's either 174cm or 175cm, how close do you think i am Rob?
Editor Rob
174cm is possible for Khabib
