    Rogan needs to sit him down for an honest talk.

    What is going on with this beard? Who are the people he has around him; surely something has to be done?

    *EDIT*:

    Just to clarify for those veering off topic; it's very much the beard which I'm concerned with. It seems to be getting worse and worse.

    He hazn't looked good for a long time against top competition, but to be fair... he's been fighting the very best. I'm sure he could make a good gate keeper if they started feeding him from the middle of the division instead of the top.

    They should have given Jake an easy no name fight. Kind of demented matchmaking by the UFC

    I keep thinking the old Juggernaut will return. If he doesn't perform (I don't mean win, but just put on a good performance), I've got to believe it's Bellator time for him.

    Man I used to love watching him fight. I always have some hope when he fights to see him unleash that rage he used to have. Matt brown is a fucking animal tho, I'm not ruling out the upset for ellenberger but it could be a bad night for jake unfortunately. Its a fight where I don't wanna see either guy lose so hopefully they just put on a wild exciting fight cuz that potential is definitely there.

    I've always found Jake a very limited and predictable fighter. There was a time 4 or 5 years ago where this wrestler with a big overhand looked like the template for mma fighters and that the sport would diminish because of it.

    Luckily that hasn't happened, but rather more dynamic fighters have thankfully emerged and those guys have been figured out and left in the past.

    Nonetheless, I don't care about any of that. It's the beard which is a concern to me. What the hell is going on here? Why is't anyone doing anything to stop this? Surely Reebok or somebody should step in here?
