    Aerodynamics, or as is the case with Ebersole, to forward hair to his receding hairline?

    Because it makes them aerodynamic when they fight

    Probably the same amount that shave their legs, and for the same reason.

    probably irritating to pull on when you're grappling. I have a lot of leg hair and I HATE when grappling or wrestling tug on my leg hairs.

    I think a lot of people do it as a courtesy to their training partners. I've grappled with some hair dudes before and the first time you take a hair, sweaty man chest to the face you understand why they'd shave.

    How do you define a shaved chest TS? Is this shaved or not? [​IMG]

    Makes sense but for the fight wouldn't you want to grow it out to make it as unpleasant for your opponent as possible? Or at least have some stuble and it could have a sand paper effect.
