The UFC has seen fighters compete with a less-than-ideal appearance.

Kimo Leopoldo showed up on a cross.

Ricco Rodrigues accepted 100k to wear a henna tattoo advertising an online gambling site, sucessfully bet the money on himself at 5-1, and in so doing in his own words "almost brought down the UFC."

Dennis Hallman showed up to work in a cup too large and a banana hammock too small, and almost got himself fired.

No one expected anything unusual from clean cut, athletic Dave Herman, when he showed for UFC on FUEL 1.

However, \Herman avoided a lot of shaving, and showed up at media duties with a dark beard, and a pink scarf he says he knit himself.

 

His Pavarotti: The Early Years look was skin deep - he stopped shaving his body, and instead died everything black. Ring card girl's faces tell the story.

UFC President Dana White was not impressed.

"I like Dave Herman," said White, adding, "the stuff that he pulled this week? I can't stand that stuff.

"Listen, if you want to get noticed ... get noticed for your fighting skills. Not for coming in like a gorilla or wearing pink scarfs. And coming in to "Macho Man?" As I was sitting there, I'm thinking 'did I seriously let him come into this song?'"

White said he has nothing against the Village People or the song, but he was serious about the not serious appearance.

It probably did not help that opponent Struve stopped Herman in the second.

I don't give a magnificent fuck either way, but I think it's more appropriate for Herman to show up to a fight with gorilla hair than waxing his entire body like he has in the past. Jesus, Struve shaves his entire head, chest, legs and armpits. That is creepy.

Yawn. There's nothing wrong with a man choosing not to wax his body. It is a little strange to dye it, but that's neither here nor there.

it was a really weird thing for him to do, but I thought it was awesome

At first I was like 'Dana got a point', then I was like 'We can't have crazy personalities and ring entrances now'? You mean the UFC is going to start controlling the product right down to the song someone wants to come out to?

I have supported UFC for years but if it's going to become a corporate product I'm going to have to stop spending money on it.

frederic - LOL @ Dana demanding manscaping and other gay-friendly demographic appearance enhancers.
While in the same breath regretting allowing herman the village people macho man song for walk in.

It's an oxymoron within the enigma of a homophobic dream...

Dana needs an assistant so he can take a well deserved vacation, he's overworked. Dana, call me bro. I'll keep shit in line while you relax for a few.

Say what you will, but it's more recognizable than the look he was sporting before. I don't think I would have been able to spot him in a crowd. Now he stands out.

Nothing wrong with trying to have a unique identity in a sport where so many fighters are carbon copies of eachother.

Dana white needs to shut his whore mouth sometimes.

Seriously he is playing favorites (the same thing he is accusing the Nevada state athletic commission).

When did Chael Sonnen get noticed by his "fighting ability", and not his wwe persona???

You can't have your cake and eat it too, Dana... fatty.

maybe Herman is sick of this faggotry of shaving the chest? maybe dana white likes to bust his nut thinking about shaved fighters wearing axe body spray. maybe dana white should eat a dick.

Dana is wrong here. MMA is about fighting, not about waxing your chest. Who gives a fuck, apart from Fox executives?

ShogunsChin - Herman should be allowed to wear that shirt.


Dana likes his fighters clean shaven

Apparently his ring girls too.
