    No. A strike placed accurately will affect bearded and non-bearded men alike.

    Probably a disadvantage, if anything. It is a well known fact that the amount of interest women pay to you is directly proportional to the amount of hair on your face. However, the more time you spend with women is INVERSELY proportional to how much you can train. Therefore, because bearded dudes are spending too much time getting tail, they tend to underperform as fighters.

    Thank you. I was talking about how you can't find their chin which is where you hit and everyone is talking about how it doesn't absorb impact. Some baboons on today.

    Reading the thread title and ignoring the post is a common thing here.

    Are you asking if guys miss more often because they can't see the jaw/chin through the beard?

    Man, I really really doubt it.

    How? YOu can't see to hit. Nelson's is so long you literally have no idea where his chin is.

    Roy Nelson has a belly armor if anything.
    The beard doesn't help you take a shot.
    That belly though...

    TS: do you believe that the fighter throwing the punch zooms-in on the sweet spot like a rifle scope? Your response is the answer.
