The Land of Giants: The Largest Athletes in Sports History
4. Stefan Struve
One of the tallest men in MMA today is Stefan Struve, a Dutch heavyweight who clocks in at 7 feet tall even, and weighs 265 pounds. He first realized he wanted to be an MMA fighter when he was 16, and his brother took him to a martial arts gym for the first time.
His professional debut was only a year later, and he soon had a remarkable record of 16-2, with only one loss. In 2008, he signed a deal with UFC for four fights, and has since signed a number of other deals that have kept him in the public eye.
