Are you being serious? Was he over, then shaved it?

He might have just been feeling the Middle East heat.

I dont thi l he did it for the weight cut. That is cutnwitj clippers and then shaved with a razor. He's not taking time to lather up and shave his head in the middle of weighing in if he's having problems making weight. Also he is saying it wasnt for weight and that he never had a problem making wright which is true.

But then again this would be a strange time to cut his hair if it was just for a different look. Now I'm not sure what to think.

If he weighed in at 146 after cutting that off, absolutely.

The weight cut might have ruined his hair anyway. You have to figure the heat from the sauna and the lack of hydration due to not drinking water for a week dries it out like a motherfucker.

Hair is dead right? So once its damaged there is no fixing it. Also like others have said, he could have needed to cut it to save some grams of weight.

Being shaved bald was his punishment for being so handsy with the Schmo. That'll learn 'em a lesson!

I remember seeing you in the bathroom with Jerry Bolander shaving your head before a fight in the IFC at Table Mountain Casino somewhere around the year 2000.

Lol! Good memory. Yeah, that was one of those rush chop chop jobs that I was talking about. I didnt have rockstar long hair like Ortega though. Seeing the second pic of his head changed my mind.
