This is a question that was posed when Mike Tyson fought for the championship belt in the heavyweight division of boxing. Tyson is 5 feet 10 inches only while his opponent Trevor Berbick is 6 feet 2 inches which is the average height of heavyweights. As we all know, Tyson knocked out Berbick in the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] round. In UFC, mixed martial arts fighters are also subjected to that question. In the recent fight of Tyrone Woodley is 5 feet 9 inches versus Stephen Thompson who stands 6 feet flat. But the fight ended in a majority draw for Woodley to retain the championship belt. Back to the question, it seems that which is dominant - height versus heft remains an unanswered question until now.
