You can tell mma is the first combat sport for most of you guys. Only mma has allowed beards/hair like this to go on so long and a lot of you guys weren't even aware its a rule lol.
Must be your first combat sport too if you don't understand the difference between how boxing PPV's are promoted and how the UFC is. Always a dead giveaway when you take the condescending route versus making any real argument.
Appearance is obviously less important fighting for a large organization that sells themselves, versus a boxer who's only chance to make money via PPV is to have a look/personality.
