I agree with both of you and it could backfire on Gray.

Long hair makes it easier for your opponent to control your head. makes it harder to escape chokes. interferes with your vision and your breathing.

Ever notice how many times Clay wipes it out of his face in a fight? We might see a new and improved carpenter.

I think it has hurt him in the past because even when he moves his head to dodge punches it looks like he gets hit because of his hair moving. Maybe it will help him?

Bunch of god damn metro sexuals. Who cares? Its hair. If he wants to fight with long hair let him. If guys are fighting with banned substances I doubt a little hair is gonna really give him that edge over the competition or give someone else an edge. I like gray but damn I kinda see him being a bit of a ***** about this.

I think its a bad idea one thing I always thought was the hair amplified the look when Clay got hit, because of the hair it always looked like he got hit harder since the hair is swinging around. I think it creates an illusion of damage.

Yes, the hair is way more disadvantageous for the guy who has it on his head than for his opponent. There is a reason why 99% of the fighters have short or no hair.

With Guida's amount of fluffy hair, the referee probably wouldn't even notice if the opponent had a little grab of it in the Thai clinch to control Guida's head. On the ground it's really a pain in the ass. Even if the opponent knees unintentionally (and how to decide if he didn't aim a little for it) on the hair, it restricts the Guida's head movement to avoid any of his opponent's manoeuvers. And as you said, it generally makes it harder to escape choke, because of the additional friction and interferes with Guida's vision.

In addition, as others have mentioned, even though it may make the targeting a little harder for the opponent (even though he usually just has to aim for the middle) many strikes look like they hit their target in the juddges eyes, just because the fist/foot dives into the mass of hair and it swings around.


...maybe Maynard is just a sportsman and doesn't want any unfair advantages on his side

Casey Jones has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Pretty sick Guida refused to cut it, even for $10,000. Sets him apart from others because of it, doesn't wanna sell out. Good for him, Maynard just seems like he's looking for something to bitch about.

Gray is gonna regret this if Guida whoops his ass and we find out he was actually fighting at 50% this whole time from the hair distraction and sight blockage lol.

Gray should have asked before signing to fight, but really I don't care.

Braided or short hair as a standard is fine by me - I think big hair that moves around a lot can be a distraction and can make it harder to judge where the guys chin is, so I'd be okay with the commission making some kinda rule on it.

I personally don't know why anyone would wanna fight with long hair it would annoy the hell outta me
