UFC president Dana White thinks Roy Nelson's beard is bad for business.

“Who would want that thing laying on their face? Seriously?" said White previously. "That long, nasty, ratty looking thing in your mouth, rubbing on your face? It’s ridiculous. They shouldn’t be allowed to have beards that big. If you want a beard, trim that thing down and make it look normal. It’s disgusting.”

Roy Nelson and his beard are fighting Daniel Cormier this Saturday live on PPV at UFC 166, and Daniel Cormier doesn't like the beard, either.

"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," said Cormier recently "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."

Nelson presumably likes the beard just fine.

"If a beard is an unfair advantage, surely Cormier should have had a beard when he failed in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics," quipped Nelson in response.

Cormier took it the authorities, petitioning the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, which will be regulating UFC 166, to do something about the beard. However, as reported on “UFC Tonight” the Texas commission responded that they don't regulate facial hygiene.

So Saturday night, Roy Nelson is free to sport the beard proudly, and Daniel Cormier is free to punch it.

For his part, when asked how the planned to win, Nelson's stated concern was Cormier hugging.

"There's a couple different ways," said Nelson. "I think the biggest thing is don't let him hug me. Don't let him push me up against the cage and just do a boring, ugly fight and piss the fans off. I think that's the biggest thing you don't want to do is piss the fans off because they are the ones that pay the bills."

What do you think of the beard? And who do you think wins Saturday night?

I like his beard. It pisses Dana off , but adds color to Roy's already colorfully personality. I also like his fights Phone Post 3.0

As a member of the Greater Hartford Beard and Mustache Club I say keep the beard. No one should shave. Dont be a clean shaven goof!


That being said I always put a band in my beard while rolling out of respect for my partners Phone Post

Bald Dana painted quite the disgusting homoerotic verbal picture there. Yikes.

He should just "wrap it up" for fights. He mentioned how his training partners left, maybe it was the beard. Phone Post 3.0

You can't look at Roy's beard and think anything other than "I'll bet it dangles in his soup." Gross.

There are a few guys that should pull their hair back and clean up their facial hair.

Clay Guida's do is annoying. Not only does it get in his own face but its probably very annoying for his opponent plus, and I think this is the most I,portent piece, it's hard to see if strikes are landing when all that hair is flying around.

Out of decency Roy should trim or clean up the beard. It's just not cool to your opponent IMO.

Plus it has to act as a pad against strikes.

Did you just say a beard acts as a fluff for strikes?

Hold on...

No, you definitely said that. I'll see myself out. Phone Post

Bendo needs to cut or braid his muff... He drove me NUTS in that Gil fight, flipping that shit every 5 seconds.

But, hey... He was a world champion and I'm just a dude posting on the interwebs on the shitter. So... Phone Post 3.0

Would there be any rules against Roy pulling the beard straight up over his head and braiding it in to his hair?

If you have to petition an athletic body to regulate your opponent's beard then you've already lost the fight, you've already told the world "I have nothing for this guy, nothing. Maybe if they trim his beard I can win?".

TEXAS! 'MERICA! BEARDS!

btw Conor is sporting a flashy beard in his latest "I love Jesus" video. Wonder if Dana will give his lucky leprechaun shit for it come fight day.

That was uh....interesting. Really hope Connor can handle the new found fame better than Jones did.

I personally would like to compete against Nelson with that beard. Well actually beard or no beard I probably wouldn't enjoy it as I'd get mauled in seconds BUT i am happy Texas AC didn't do anything and here is why....

Cormier said that his reasons for petitioning the commission were to "one up" Roy and "why not Roy must want to keep it if he has it so I'm messing with him" Paraphrasing just a tad but I didn't think that was fair play by Cormier.
