He looked a good 6’4 or over with Fury in early pressers but looked weak 6’4 later. He could be a guy that dips to say 6’3.75 but no less
sean Cdd said on 25/Nov/23
rob how tall is the new HW champ tom aspinall? Listed 6'5 but struggles to look 6'4, I'd say 6'3.5
Duhon said on 12/Sep/23
Not sure how some people are commenting him as being under 6'4"? He's about as strong a 6'4" as someone can be, seeing him next to other celebrities. He probably could have gotten away being listed 6'5" by the UFC.

Hey Rob, how tall would you say Curtis Blaydes is? 6’2.75?
Editor Rob
Yeah he looks like he's closer to that mark, than his billed height of 6ft 4

Watch the post fight interview where Tyson fury calls out Ngannou. Tyson fury was no more than inches taller than him. The camera angle made them look the same height at times. Tyson needs to down to 6’6.5 maybe 6’6.75
And Ngannou to 6’4.5

He is slightly shorter than 6’4 Gane who is the same height as jones. He is only a half inch taller than stipe miocic who was listed as 6’3 flat in his earlier career which is his actual height. Ngannou is 6’3.5 it’s pretty obvious he’s not a full 6’4 next to legit 6’4 Gane.

dont really know but he can make alot of guys looks shorter than their listed height. Maybe 194 isnt imposbbile.

Kobe is 6'4.5 to 6'5, Then Francis is sub 6'4".

Kobe is easily an Inch on Francis. Even Dipping his head and not standing straight he is taller.

if Kobe is 6'4.75" Like he is listed here, Francis is 6'3.5 to 6'3.75".
Antonio Mattos said on 12/Apr/23
Rob, how tall would you say upcoming heavyweight fighter Jailton Almeida is?
Here is a picture of him with Alex Pereira, but take into consideration camera angle and shoe advantage.

Editor Rob
Those flip flops look thicker than your normal type so footwear may not be that much different. I'd have thought about an inch between them.
Discord said on 5/Apr/23
@Editor Rob

Is 6'3 fair for him? Most of site visitors speculate Lewis to be 6'2-6'2.5 range.
Editor Rob
If Lewis is within that range, then 6ft 3 for Sergei seems reasonable.

6'4 minimum imo. @Canson Doesn't have the proportions of a legit 6'4? How does someone have proportions of a 6'3.5-6'3.75 guy but not 6'4? Doesn't get dwarfed by 6'7.5 Fury and noticeably taller than Stipe.

I wonder 🤔, why they didn't inflate his height to 6'5 on Google.
Canson said on 21/Jul/22
@Duhon: he can look the full 6’4”. Only issue is that baseball players’ listings are wacky in some cases. Brad Brach was listed 6’6 and he admitted to being under 6’3”.

Rob, do you think Francis, could possibly be 6’4.25 rather than a flat 6’4. He always looked strong 6’4 range.
Editor Rob
Sometimes it seems plausible he falls within 6ft 4-4.25 zone.
ChaosControl2 said on 1/Apr/22
Francis and Johnny might be the same height then
Duhon said on 31/Mar/22
Johnny Walker for sure is not 6'6" but I don't think he looks shorter than Francis in that pic. The tops of their head taking into account hair looks near identical. Jonny seems to be in training shoes, don't know if Francis might be in boots based on his outfit.
ChaosControl2 said on 31/Mar/22

If Francis is 6’4-6’4.24, would you say Johnny Walker is 6’3.75-6’4? It seems like a pretty good pic for height comparison. Johnny’s listed at 6’6 which is hilarious (the one light heavyweight who actually is 6’4 gets pumped to 6’6)
ChaosControl1 said on 20/Feb/22
Duhon said on 18/Feb/22
@Jordan87 I agree. I think he has about .5" on Francis. Both very honestly listed guys by UFC standards, I think they actually round down for Gane by listing him as 6'4" flat.

Weird thing is Francis does sometimes look over 6’4 which leads me to believe he’s billed honestly which I’d estimate makes Gane look 6’4.5. I have seen some sites claim 6’5 for Gane by the way

Russell Ash said on 23/Jan/22
Hey Rob, any chance you could add Ciryl Gane?
ChaosControl1 said on 23/Jan/22
Gane’s billed 6’4 but can look 6’5. If he was a legit 6’5 he’d probably be billed at least 6’5-6 if not even 6’7 so I think 6’4.5
ChaosControl1 said on 21/Jan/22
Gane doesn’t look much taller than Francis. I’d say if Francis is 6’4 then Gane is 6’4.5 max

ChaosControl1 said on 30/Dec/21
A good rule of thumb with MMA fighters is if they look shorter than billed take 3-4 inches off, if they look their billed height take 1-2 inches off and if they look taller than billed then it’s about right, give or take a 0.25-0.5 inch at the most. This is just a generalised guess but it tends to work
Alexandre Picot said on 25/Dec/21

Francis is one inch shorter than Kobe Bryant who is 6’4 1/2 he said himself and only 3 inches taller than Michael Jai White who is 6’ 1/2. I’d say he is short of 6’4 and like 6’3 3/4ths

184guy2 said on 5/Apr/21
In UFC if you are 6'2 or taller you are automatically pumped to 6'4. I can't understand how Francis and Gané are billed close to.their real listing and not 6'6 or so....
Also Volkov is billed "only" 6'7 when he is pretty much about that , and not the WWE style where 6'7 guys are sent to the 6'10+ departament
Gaspergoo said on 4/Apr/21
Looks 6'4" to 6'5".....looks taller than Stipe Miocic and Israel Adesanya and both are listed at 6'4"....obvious he was a little taller than Stipe.

Are heights listed on here a morning max or afternoon height?
Editor Rob
not morning height
Duhon said on 30/Mar/21
By UFC standards he could have gotten away with claiming his height as 6'5" easy or even 6'6" perhaps but he's an honest guy, respect.
184guy2 said on 28/Mar/21
That's because he is a real one . Everyone in HW is billed 6'4 , even tho some of them are barely 6'2
Jairzinho is 6'0-6'1 and is billed 6'4

There are VERY VERY few 6'4+ers on UFC

I’m not so sure Francis is a solid 6’4” afternoon height with Kobe. Maybe 6’3.75” instead but no less. Then again he may surprise us
Duhon said on 26/Mar/21
I think Ngannou is the textbook definition of a 6'4" guy. Looks taller than every other "6'4" listed UFC fighter.
Jordan87 said on 25/Mar/21
Kobe had him by an Inch. Kobe claims he himself was 6'5 in sneakers so I'm not sure what that means considering many believe Kobe was 6'5" barefoot.

Kobe was the taller man of these two for sure though.

6'4 seems very likely
184guy2 said on 27/Jan/21
I don't think he is as short as 6'3.5
To me half inch over Stipe
Anyway he could be considered a legit 6'4er since most guys billed 6'4 in UFC are 6'2 at most
Even Jairzinho who is like 6'0-6'1 is billed 6'4 , which is totally ridiculous
Canson said on 15/Jan/21
I’d give him 6’3.5-.75. Agree with 184guy. He doesn’t have proportions of a legit 6’4.
184guy2 said on 9/Jan/21
After a closer look I believe Ngannou is slightly under 6'4 . Here he looks shorter than Gustafsson and I don't think Gus is taller than 6'4 , he looks pretty matched up with Jones

LT123 said on 11/May/20
He looked massive beside Rosenstruik who claims 6'4, and was billed as such for the fight (but obviously isn't, and is listed as 6'2 on other sites including his Wiki page). What's your guess for Rosenstruik's height based on the comparison to Francis? Francis gets 6'4.5" for me.

Max holloway is no more than 5’10 178cm, he just constantly wears thick sneakers/shoes around people who are in very thin shoes or are barefoot. He’s barely taller than 5’8.5 McGregor

Click Here
eeeer said on 3/Nov/19
Ngannou's real height is most likely 6'3 1/2. I'm serious. The Shaq and Gane comparisons makes it obvious.

From my recent study on height, Max Holloway is 5'11, Cyril Gane is 6'4 (strong). From Max we can gather that DC is 5'9 (strong), Volkan is 6'1 (strong). From Gane, Ngannou is 6'3 (strong), Brad Tavares is 5'11 (strong) and Adesanya is 6'2.

Strong example: 6'0 but most likely closer to 6'0 1/2 or 6'0 2/3 at their best, but not 6'1.
maa said on 9/Jul/19
In a recent pic on Kamaru Usman instagram Ngannou edged out Adesanya by at least 1 in !!
maa said on 1/Jul/19
Hi Rob,

in a recent interview Ngannou said : " Jon Jones would be my ideal opponent because I met him once and he was really tall, same as me... Well, almost as me...I just may have few pounds on him"

I think that this statement proves that Jones is 100% at least 6 ft 3.5 or taller... I agree with your listing of 6 ft 4 Ngannou and 6 ft 3.75 Jones

@Christian: he could look how Usain bolt did with him or a pinch taller. Best case 6’4 maybe even 6’3.75 and Kobe 6’4.75
maa said on 26/Feb/19

Give me your predictions of HW fighters.
I have guessed Hunt at 176 cm because he looked at least 12 cm shorter than Lesnar; and JDS a little taller than Lesnar, so maybe 189 cm.
Cormier 176 cm
Stipe 192 cm
Lewis 189 cm
Ngannou 193 cm
Blaydes 192 cm
Volkov 200 cm
Overeem 191 cm
Cain Vel 183 cm
JDS 189 cm
Lesnar 188 cm
Werdum 189 cm
Hunt 176 cm
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Feb/19
He's still shorter than 195cm either way, whether you wanna call that an "exaggeration" or not doesn't change that fact.
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 25/Feb/19
@maa Hunt @176 makes no sense, especially if you have JDS @190cm.
Please look at their staredown. Werdum @ 189cm makes no sense either, especially since you have Overeem at 191 and Fabricio appeared 1 to 2cm taller both time they fought.

@Christian 6'5 3/8" just reporting what the man himself said, as far as "exaggeration" is concerned, well saying that he looks way shorter than 195cm certainly is what should be called exaggerating.

6'4" or 6'4.25"

195cm is a exaggeration. He looks way shorter than that with a real 195cm like Kobe Bryant.
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 12/Jul/18
in all fairness Hunt often looked like someone who would give his height as 5'10 but that's probably without even standing straight and at his lowest of the day..
He looked closer to 5'11 on tons of occasions..

As far as Francis is concerned, he himself said " 1.95m " in a french interview so..
ConorFan. said on 1/Jun/18
Francis here with Mark Hunt, Tyson Pedro and Tai TuiVasa. (Pic link: Click Here ) Rob keep in mind Tyson is listed as 6'3 do you still think Francis is 6'4 or possibly 6'5?
Editor Rob
You could argue a bit over 6ft 4 there
ee said on 12/May/18
@Iknowheight meet halfway? This isn't a philosophy class where ideas are malleable. All his pictures make him look gigantic, even as big as 6'5 with some angles and you say he's 6'3? This man is clearly above 6'4. Why believe him to be shorter than he is? You don't benefit from him being even 6'0 so might as well just accept this guy at his real height which IMO would be 6'4 1/2 or quite possibly more judging from the lebron and Stipe pictures.
Iknowheight said on 19/Mar/18
Okay let's meet halfway and call him a solid 6'3 1/2. Not a centimeter over though!
ConorFan said on 15/Mar/18
@Iknowheight i found your username funny because you clearly don't know how angle's work in pictures, that pic you posted is clearly at an angle that makes them both look fairly even but you can still tell Francis is taller than Alister.
Iknowheight said on 7/Mar/18
Frnacis Ngannou is definitely not 6'5. Not even 6'4 like people think he is.
I think you should really update this Rob,
I have a picture here of Alistair overeem and Ngannou side by side. They are the same height. Click Here
Ngannou is 6'3 even. Maybe 6'3 1/4 on his best day.

Stipe is not fully 6'4. Francis is 6'4 therefore Stipe cannot be. If you believe Francis is 6'5 like the UFC lists him then not sure what to say to you.

i guess he is 2cm taller than ovream
ConorFan said on 3/Feb/18
I snapped a shot of Stipe & Francis standing barefoot in the octagon face off ( Pic Link: Click Here ) imo Francis is a clear inch taller than Stipe which would make him 6'5.
Levi said on 28/Jan/18
Rob, how about a page for the current heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic? Listed as 6'4" but has looked taller than most 6'4" listed fighters.
Animus said on 23/Jan/18
He definitely did not look shorter than Stipe during the fight. He makes Stipe look shorter than 6ft4, if this listing is accurate.
Josh Jeffords said on 23/Jan/18
Looked taller than stipe at stare down but shorter barefoot during fight.
Could be a posture thing but think folks are still holding the tape above the hair..
ConorFan said on 20/Jan/18
Also Rob can we have some more MMA guys, like Tyron Woodley for example, he has claimed to be 5'9 in an interview prior to the Damian Maia fight, but he looks significantly shorter than his "5'9" claim at around 5'6 or 5'7 in my opinion.
ConorFan said on 20/Jan/18
Rob i think he's closer to 6'5, because he looks an inch or so taller than legit 6'4 Stipe. But we'll see in the final staredown in the octagon who is taller i guess.
DruceLee said on 18/Jan/18
Closer to 6'5 definitely.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 17/Jan/18
Whether a fraction under 6'4" for Ngannou is arguable, I'm pretty certain that Miocic is below it.

I think him and Miocic are the only legit 6'4 listed in the division.
