At UFC 217 on Saturday night, there were incredible fights that ended in spectacular fashion.
Submissions, upsets, and knockouts galore, it’s hard to imagine anyone in the arena going home unhappy with the show that the UFC put on for them. With that said, the real show wasn’t even in the octagon.
It was ringside, where Kristaps Porzingis and Demetrious Johnson posed for a photo that shows the remarkable height difference between the two athletes.

Both athletes are supreme, top of the crop talents. Porzingis is the face of one of the most recognizable brands in the NBA. Johnson is the UFC’s first flyweight champion. Both garner massive amounts of respect from their peers. But there’s no getting around it, this photo is kind of gross to look at.
Porzingis, who again, is a talented basketball players and seems like a swell guy, is reminiscent of a tape worm. Long and pale, most people will find themselves having to do some scrolling in their browser to see this entire photo. While some height difference photos are fun and campy, this one might leave you with an uneasy feeling in your stomach.
It’s funny, but also kind of scary.
