List Rules Vote up the best fighters standing over 6-foot-4 tall.

Size matters in sports, and the tallest UFC fighters competing right now are evidence of that fact. Every fighter over 6-foot-4 competing in the octagon right now has an advantage over his opponents, with height and reach being major factors in any matchup.

Heavyweight Russian fighter Alexander Volkov has found success with his karate and kickboxing styles while competing at 6-foot-7, as one of the three tallest current UFC fighters. Other fighters like Maurice Greene and Daniel Spitz also clock in at 6-foot-7. But fighters like Alistair Overeem and Cyril Gane are not far behind at 6-foot-5 and are making the most of their size in the octagon.

But who is the best fighter coming in with a major height advantage over his opponents? Who is using his size to the best effect in the octagon? Which tall fighters competing in the UFC in 2019 are having the greatest success?
