I used to see Cormier almost everyday when I lived in socal he and wheeler were about the same 5'10, maybe u might not be as tall as u think
Take a look at stage pics of levrone, Cormier, Ronnie, wheeler ALL relatively the same ht. Ray is clearer shorter than kev by 2 to 3 inches...
Again height and bbers in thongs is serious business
i'm 6' now... was 6'1" maybe 6'1.5" back when I'd see these guys in person semi-regularly. I don't recall ever seeing ronnie in person when he wasn't sitting down. I was surprised at how short kev and cormier were... ruhl too, and how small/narrow/compact johnnie jackson was, and was always surprised at how tall wheeler and lee priest were, or how wide tom prince was.
the other guys were about what i expected (dillett, cutler, mike morris, kamali, titus, milos, nasser, melvin, derik, ect..... ), height wise.
