Cormier's special requests for Nelson's beard/hair


Daniel Cormier has a tough test in front of him at UFC 166 in the form of Roy Nelson, but some things outside of his fighting skin and iron chin have Cormier concerned:

"The thing about the beard is it doesn't seem to be well-kept, so I'm going to request that there's a rubber band in it and that it comes straight down," Cormier said at Friday's UFC Fight Club Q&A session in Milwaukee. "Also, I'm going to ask that they put his hair in two plaits off to the side. Part it down the middle, plait it on the sides. I don't want it all in my face."

I hope this pisses Roy off so bad that he comes in a possessed killer a la CroCop V Wand 2 and takes his opponents head off. I fear a happy Roy stands little chance against DC.

I thought it was a funny joke, though I wouldn't be surprised if somebody requested Roy clean up a bit. He looks like shit.

It's a fair request, I would not want Roy's beard or Guida's hair in my eyes and mouth. That and Roy's beard looks like it would smell like Charlie Sheen's carpet.
