The Height of MMA Fighters Compared to Other Martial Artists
While there is a lot of variation in the height and reach of UFC fighters, the average MMA fighter tends to be shorter and have a shorter reach than boxers or other traditional martial artists. This is likely due to the fact that MMA fighters need to be able to grapple with their opponents, and a shorter stature gives them an advantage in this area. MMA fighters also tend to be lighter than their boxing or martial arts counterparts, as they need to be able to move quickly and explosively during a fight.
