I would like to know what your top 5 tall guy mma fighters of all time. ( 6"6 and above )

I'm thinking Struve would probably make it in there, Tim Sylvia... Can't think of anymore besides travis Browne but surely there must be other guys ??

Shane Carwin cuts from 6'6''
Jon Jones has the arms of an 8 foot tall person.
George Roop is 6 foot 7 and fights at 135.

I think Roop is only 6'1. 6'7 would be crazy. Lol

Michael Kirkham (may he rest in peace) was 6'9 and fought at 155 demonstrating how tall fighters should not fight in weight classes that is super unhealthy according to the BMI.

Good call! Remember when he fought Lashley? He kept telling him to touch his glove and then put it well above his head.

Cyrille Diabate (or snake diabetes) is pretty decent. He just barely makes the list. His beat down on Cantwell was epic. I think someone scored it 30-24.

Overeem just misses the mark at 6 foot 5. He's probably the best big man in mma. (Not including Semmy bc he's more of a kickboxer).

Of the list we have is there anyone you think that could beat the giant killer, Minowaman?

Anyone remember Giant Silva (Paulo Cesar DeSilva) he was a giant and fought exactly how you'd imagine a 7 foot 2 person to fight. Insanely slow and his right hand was used like a hammer fist.

I miss the freaks

Minowaman>Sokuju>Lil Nog>Reem>Hunt>Struve
