I don't see how this is relevant. It's pound for pound, not inch for inch. The shape of some one builds should not be taken into account. I will bite though. He would rank pretty high. He is very explosive. He has great wrestling. He great submissions. He is extremely hard working. He fights smart. He is very teachable and open minded about learning and utilizing new techniques. He has great submission defense, especially for a man with comically thin arms and legs. For someone with his reach he has good coordination. He has heart. He has conditioning. His success goes far beyond being big and tall like a lot users on this forum can't see, or aren't willing to admit, because of their hate for him (not necessarily talking about you).
