I'm 5'11 190lbs. When I was sparring in me first Karate class, a kid that couldn't be taller than 5'4'' who was a brown belt beat me 2-1. My first point was from using my kicking reach. He then knew that's my only chance and used his skill and speed to get to the inside and took that away then easily won.

I'm sure if Gill fought an unexperienced fighter he'd win by using his reach advantage. In fact, I'm sure there are examples of that. However when a skilled fighter takes that away, he isn't good enough to overcome it. That's why guys like Clarkson and Rypien win a lot of fights. They know how to take themselves out of disadvantageous situation.
