    Or spinal compression from too much heavy weight lifting...

    My dad was a roofer for almost 50 years. He was the same height as me when I was a teen (6'1).

    By the time he stopped roofing (which btw is plenty of heavy lifting) he was somewhere around 5'9"

    Yeah he thought that extra height was giving him trouble with cardio so he’s just cutting it now

    He is likely 6'3 or 6'3.5 because he was just a tad shorter than both Stipe and Arlovski who are 6'4

    Age and spinal compression combined, makes you shorter. it's a fact.

    Although it seems like UFC took a page from the WWE and inflated everyone's height over the years so who knows...

    There's no need to be portraying him as taller than he actually is anymore.

    Do you powerlift? Overeem does.

    Hang on, I'll find you a study to read.

    There is a reason top body builders shrink in height quickly

    he doesn't even do powerlifting as much anymore really. he was powerlifting more as ubereem who was allegedly 6,5.

    also Brian shaw is a professional powerlifter who has been 6,8" throughout his entire career

    let the bioscience flow through you though

    There are pictures where he looks taller than Jones though, I would give him 6'4 unless he's shrunk as mentioned.

    Also to add to this confusion Arlovski has been listed as 6'3 and looked shorter than Jones in a pic together lol.
