My point is, your assuming that because someone is tall, they can fight. Its untrue. My point that strength and fighting abilities are far more important than height when it comes to fighting.
A one foot difference in height is what I would call an advantage. In St. Pierre's case, he is an UFC champion. His sole purpose is to be a street fighter and he's basically a kick boxer. If you would make an exception to a guy 5'10" beating a gu a foot taller than him, then he would be your guy. Or another good example would have been a prime Mike Tyson.

Also Lennox Lewis was 6'5". No doubt in my mind after watching him box the distinct advantage he had was his height and reach.
