    Remember before his last fight he got his hair cut because he said it made the competitions head shots look better than they actually were with long hair. I believe he is spot on with this observation. Along those lines, I think Caceres should get his cut short as a head shot on him looks way worse than most of them are. I noticed this a while back and when Faber mentioned it, it reinforced my theory/belief.

    I ain't saying that it makes a fighter worse or better with or without hair, just that a strike looks more effective when the hair moves 10" compared to the head moving 3".

    Charlie Brenneman's KOs and Knockdowns are usually pretty brutal but they look 10x worse with that fro.

    Still wasn't short enough. His hair moved when he got hit in the third fight too, that goof.

    Pro wrestlers talk about that as a reason why they let their hair grow. It makes sense.

    So now he's saying he lost a decision because his hair was flying back from being punched, which made it look worse?

    I never realized it either, but it does make sense. If you learn something new everyday, this is my learning experience.

    Simply pointing out the obvious.
    But still, has there been any fight where on guy got robbed and he had long hair ans lost because ofthis reason?
    I sure cant think od any it was close at ufc 132 but not that close that it was because of the hair, sorry faber.
