I'd pick Struve and Browne over Minowaman.



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

And mma math has never been wrong.




He is the reining super hulk champion of dream.




IMO there's Semmy and then there's the rest. If it 6 6 and above.

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.




Shane Carwin cuts height for fights? lol

I agree with the post above. Semmy Schilt is the only fighter who keeps 'normal' dimensions in his physique, i.e he is wide and tall, and without a familiar object in a photograph of him, he would look average. I have this problem being 6'5, as soon as I stop working out I start looking like a bean pole.

Good list. I was going to post some of those names, but you beat me to it, and had plenty I had forgotten as well. The only name I can think o ftht isn't on there is Jon Hess and Ricardo Morais--neither of whom is going to make any top 5 lists.

I think the best of the bunch was Tim Sylvia--a UFC champ who arguably has the most impressive UFC HW resume of anyone. After that I'll take Alex, Schilt, Struve and Browne.
