Gilbert Burns Height

"If I want to be a champion, I need to fight everyone. I'm following the example of Glover Teixeira and Charles Oliveira. I need to fight everyone. He's tough and a big risk, but I still want to fight him."

~ Gilbert Burns

Popular and heavy-handed mixed martial artist from Brazil, Gilbert Burns is one of the highest-ranked welterweights (as of this writing) in the UFC. He is an all-around package, with an excellent ground game and with two heavy hammers at the end of two of his upper limbs -- thus he is recognized as a formidable force in the octagon.

Though where height is concerned, Gilbert is not tall, he can be said to be on the shorter side in the welterweight division -- especially when compared with top dogs of the welterweight division like Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman.

Though if compared with someone like Khamzat Chimaev, Gilbert can appear to be a lot shorter but Khamzat is the tallest guy in the division so there is that.

UFC lists Gilbert at a formidable 5-feet-10 inches but if his height is examined with deep scrutiny, and compared with the likes of Kamaru Usman and Dana White -- both around 5'10½", it looks like Mr. Burns is a bit shorter than that.

The real height of Gilbert Burns is

5'9¼" or 176 cm

"I don't want to be labeled on my ju-jitsu and don't want to be the guy who needs jiu-jitsu. I want to be a complete fighter because I can wrestle and I can grapple. Don't you dare go to the ground with me."
