Amanda Nunes Height ~ How Tall is She Really?

One of the greatest female mixed martial artists of all time, Amanda Nunes is an average-sized woman in real life and not exceptionally muscled as well (though admittedly with wide shoulders). UFC lists her at 5'8" which we think is honestly a bit too much for her - UFC has a history of increasing their fighters' height so this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. 

In her face-off with Ronda Rousey, she looked but about an inch taller. Now Ronda is listed at 5'7" so it would all seem to fit in, except Ronda is far from the 5'7" mark in real life. She is somewhere between 5'5" to 5'6", which makes Amanda Nunes somewhere between 5'6" to 5'7" as well.

What is more, Amanda Nunes looked around an inch and a half shorter than a genuine 5'8" tall woman - Holly Holm. After comparing Amanda Nunes to a lot of people, like Cris Cyborg (5'8"), Valentina Shevchenko (5'4"), Holly Holm (5'8"), and many more, we think she is around 5'6.5" or 169 cm barefoot.

The real height of Amanda Nunes is 5'6.5" or 169 cm

Data painstakingly extracted more or less from Wikipedia and some other sources. Expect up to half an inch of discrepancy from real life. All heights are supposed to belong to relatively young people of the urban areas, so they may come out slightly over the real average height.
