I’d love to see a listing for Whitaker. I don’t think he’s much more than 5’11. He might even be slightly shy of it. (He was listed at 179 cm for one fight in the UFC.) I think Donald Cerrone would be perceptibly taller than him - I peg Cerrone at 181-182cm - especially considering Cowboy often wears big boots.

Adesanya also looks at least 6’3” with 6’6” Paul Pierce.

A shade under 6'3" flat is probably what he stands at.

I agree with you, after seeing more of Whittaker I guess he is around 5 ft 11...

Whittaker and Tavares were both listed 5'10.5" but were both bumped to 6'0" for whatever reason. Think tavares might even be listed 6'1".
Tavares is the shorter man so the 5'10.5" might be his range and Whittaker something like 5'11" flat. They both do not look 6'0" next to Adesanya.
UFC listings of the past were kind of a joke

can you please tell me how tall the champ Rob Whittaker is? Billed at 6 ft, in the video he has footwear disadvantage. I believe he is around 5 ft 11.5
I'd have said 5ft 11.5 at most there.

I am curious about Whittaker height .
Robert is definitely taller than yoel Romero who is also listed at 6 ft but I believe he is more like 178. the least I would go for Whittaker might be 5 ft 11 1/2
Big T said on 5/Jul/19
If Israel is 6’3” or less then Robert Whitaker is definitely under 6’. The height difference in the face off was more than I expected.

Rob, have you seen photos of him and Silva from the weigh-in ? He was barefoot and Silva was wearing pretty chunky flip flops, gaining a solid inch from them, and Israel edged him out by about a fraction at least. In my opinion Israel is 6’2.5” minimum but not quite 6’3” flat, maybe 6’2 3/4 will be the best shout ?
6ft 2.75 might be the lowest I'd go.

I STRONGLY disagree with you on Jon Jones/Israel Adesanya comparison. Please look at Jones pic with Silva and similar footwear...Jon is 2.25 in taller...Israel is not even 1 in taller than Silva as the stage proves it ( Adesanya barefoot was very similar to Silva with shoes).
Silva 6 ft 1.25
Adesanya 6 ft 2.25
Jones 6 ft 3.5
Aldo Woodley is a little shorter than Conor, probably TWOOD is a weak 5 ft 8.
Max Halloway is not far off the 5 ft 11 mark, but probably around 5 ft 10.5 as he wears sport shoes with higher heel than usual shoes.
Frost said on 8/Mar/19
Tbh the way the photo is framed I don't think he really edges him out by much. Conor seems to be standing better as well. I'm of the mindset that Conor is likely below the 5'8.5" mark all things considered so yeah a 5'8 listing works for tyron. They're probably not more than a cm apart.
Guest66 said on 7/Mar/19
@Frost, Tyron himself claimed to be 5'8", McGregor is edging him out.
said on 6/Mar/19
I believe Dana is 5'10" and not much more.
@maa, if Khabib is indeed 5'9-5'9.5" in height then it's safe to assume Max Holloway isn't far off his 5'11" listed height.
I also think Tyron Woodley and Conor Mcgregor would get similar listings if he was added here.
He's more than likely shorter than his 5'9" listing. Also this works for Israel. He's a noticeably tall guy and I doubt there would be more than inch between him and Jones. Maybe a quarter off the mark but that's about it really.

I don't think Dana White is any more than a flat 5'10"!
maa said on 26/Feb/19
Clearly not 190 cm...Anderson Silva has the same heigth with 0.75 in footwear...No more than 6ft 2.5 in
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 25/Feb/19
Well his fight with Anderson clearly debunked the 6'4 possibility.
He looked 190cm at best there..
As for Dana, looks 5 inches shorter so 5'10 at best ( Israel has a wider stance )
Not quite 6'2 said on 22/Feb/19
*sigh* starting to get tired of this. Almost every page people are determined to downgrade someone. Be real, 190cm is bang on the mark for Israel at absolute worse 189 but I highly doubt it.
ConorFan. said on 22/Feb/19
I agree with this listing, he didnt appear massively taller than Anderson Silva, 2inch at most. Although he's very lanky in general which makes people think he's bigger than what he actually is. Good job Rob 👍🏼

Hey Rob , can you do Robert Whittaker, Yoel Romero, Tony Ferguson, Tyron Woodley
These are the MMA fighters which I can't really guess there heights, there legit stars in fact more famous than Israel
saltyfish177cm said on 21/Feb/19
Dana is around 179cm he ever so slightly edges Mike Tyson
maa said on 21/Feb/19
HE needs a downgrade...
6 ft 2.5 in
said on 21/Feb/19
So dana white must be around 5ft 11 then?
5ft 10 or 10 and change I think is more likely.
Jordan87 said on 20/Feb/19
The Guys Says he is 6'3", Looks 6'2-6'2.5", of course the UFC Lists him at 6'4"!!!.....My favorite was When Frank Mir was Listed at 6'3 and Carwin was listed at 6'5", yet Mir is actually a Half Inch Taller.
UFC is just as bad as Wrestling in some cases.
maa said on 20/Feb/19
please can you add Dana White? I would also appreciate Velasquez, Whittaker, Woodley, Holloway and TJ Dillashaw
Guest66 said on 20/Feb/19
@maa, Agree, either Silva is a legit 6'2" or this guys is in 6'2" range himself.
SnerhagAip777 said on 19/Feb/19
How long is his head? It doesn't look large for a 6ft3 man.
said on 19/Feb/19
Awesome that you added him rob!! Wooo!! Do you think he’s more 192 cm or 191 cm?
Well he claimed 6ft 3, I know he was also listed 191cm so you could argue he has a chance of 6ft 3 and a fraction.
said on 18/Feb/19
Barefoot HE is exactly the same height as Silva with 1 inc shoes....I would go for 6 ft 2.5 in for him, not sure a full 6 ft3....his scrawny frame helps him
Stepehen Newell said on 18/Feb/19
Barely taller than Anderson , looks in the 188-189 range to me
Randomdude0000 said on 18/Feb/19
easily looks 6'3 there with 5'10 Dana White
Rocky Balboa said on 17/Feb/19
Barefoot 6'3 is a fair call I believe. The UFC lists him as 6'4 which he likely pulls off in shoes
