Yes you are right about the height of Matsui Kancho.
He was 86kg (at 4th world tournament).

Andy Hug is about 180 cm tall according to his Fighter profile, Mas Oyama is probably 177-179 or so, nevertheless, you can see from this picture that he is 'almost' as tall as Andy Hug either way:

Let's not forget old people tend to shrink over the years so he actually may have been an inch taller. I also read somewhere that he was a solid 240lbs.

oyama sosai was 175cm=5'9 inchs tall,75kg when he came down from mt.kiyozumi,80kg when he was fighting against other martial artists,over 90
kg when he was retired from fighting,and 60kg just before he passed away by
lung cancer.Ashihara sensei is about 65kg-70kg when he was at prime.

Does anyone know the weight and height of Sosai Mas Oyama around the time he performed the 300 man kumite?
