In an odd bit of MMA news, one of the UFC’s most famous haircuts will be more tame than usual inside the octagon.
After a formal complaint was filed with the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board from Gray Maynard’s camp, the former title challenger’s opponent, Clay Guida, has opted to braid his hair for their upcoming headlining bout on FX.
As first reported by MMAJunkie.com. Maynard’s camp filed a complaint about Guida’s hair and its potential to interfere in the fight, about a month ago. Rather than taking the issue to a hearing, Guida decided to comply with the opposing camp’s request, despite being unhappy with being required to do so.
For his part, Maynard claims he was unaware of his camp’s request.
