    Watching Brown vs. Silva, I couldn't help but to think that the full beard has something to do with superior fighting skills (see Brown, see Silva), or at least stamina and endurance. Went back to the list of UFC Champions, and all of them appear to be full bearded, with Barao and Aldo always going 5 O'clock beard, and the rest of them going closed, full beard, and Ronda not having one. So in a boring Monday in Sherdog, does full beard supersedes the big chin myth about male fighting resiliance?

    Please elaborate.

    Source: I'm full bearded.

    P.S. Refrain from answering if you are uncapable of growing a beard.

    P.S. 2 Fighters that grow full beard, but shave, qualify as well.

    I'm pretty sure all UFC champions were/are not "full bearded"

    GSP and Anderson Silva are the 2 greatest champs in UFC history and neither has ever had a full beard, occasionally Silva would have a goatee but that's about it.

    Anderson has a closed of a beard as it gets. He shaves. Not sure about GSP.
