Believe it or not, despite being almost 7 feet tall, Stefan Struve did not have the longest reach of any athlete in the UFC. That honor belong to UFC lightheavyweight champion Jon Jones, despite the champion being only 6'4". When he arrived in Vegas for UFC 146, Struve was re-measured and now holds the distinction of the longest reach in UFC history alongside Jones:

So get this: the UFC remeasured@stefanstruve today, & he's now 6"11.5 with an 84.5" reach, tying Jones for the longest reach in UFC history
