I’ve consulted the field guide and I see nothing regarding haircut changes causing a major win/loss difference in a fighter. It seems like head-hair doesn’t hold the same weight as facial hair for whatever reason. Your guess is as good as mine, but who really knows what kind of impact this new head of hair Rich Franklin will boast in the octagon come June 23rd…Who really knows?
The haircut in question.
Yes, the internet is ablaze comparing Rich Franklin to Lloyd Christmas, and it’s really, really hard to write an article discussing anything UFC 147 related beyond Rich Franklin’s hair. Movie Star Math tells me that if Rich Franklin can pull of Jim Carrey as Lloyd Christmas, then Rich Franklin could also pull off Freddie Mercury, and none of that matters to Wanderlei Silva no matter how much he likes to sing along to Somebody to Love.
