I think so. It might be like 10-15%

I had to post the staredown pic of ortiz/evans b/c of the size difference there seems to be.

It reminds me of Forrest and Franklin. I didn't notice that it was that big of a difference until the were in the cage. Same with chuck and wanderlei

Ortiz has always been that huge n rashad could prb fight at 185. I meet tito once and he is a giant n im 6'1" 200 lbs n i felt like a lil kid.. plus his head is the size of a planet no joke. rashad did say when tito 1st took him down it felt like 4 gorillas on top of him

Not much difference from the first fight.. Evans looks like he packed on a little more muscle to be honest.

Ya, Rashad could be at 185 for sure. He even looks like he get a little bit more cut up too.

Rashad is sooooper stocky. With his current physique, he's a strong 205. He could do 185, but he would also have to change his build and lose a bit of mass.

He's wearing shoes.

It was intentional I would think.

I do not think the height advantage will play much of a factor in this fight. Tito is not exactly a great puncher. IMO, Rashad will have his way with Tito just like Jenna.

Oh no he did not say that???

Oh yes I did.

I remembered the ufc pulled a WWE stunt by promoting Carwin as a 6' 5" HW against Brock. Carwin came to the weigh-ins wearing shoes as well and I believed he was still shorter than Brock.

Who are they trying to fool?>>>>the casual fans of course.

Most Height listings are incorrect for just that reason. Georges St. Pierre 6'0"? Not even close. Same with Reach. Mike Brown 76", Yeah Right. Its just to build some extra intrigue. Some extra variables to consider. Some extra excitement for the fight.
