Default Correct height

Why don't they measure the height of fighters at the weigh in? I know it's weight not height classes,but people are interested in height too.I for one loved Tyson (partly) because he was a heavy and 5'10" like me and so was Orlin Norris,cooper 5'11",tua 5'9.5" and I think Marciano was 5'9"! And to a lesser extent,Bonavena 5'10",Stander and Lionel Butler 5'11".

If they did that, then you'd realize that most fighters are shorter than their listed heights.
Tyson at 5'11 1/2"? Hahaha....
Tua gets listed either as 5'9" or 5'10"; he's probably 5'9" at best.

But why would fighters care? If you can fight that's all that matters.
