    Default Kimbo Slice's Beard, legal?

    Why is Kimbo allowed to fight with such a thick beard? This is an unfair advantage since it helps to cushion the blows, that is why boxers can only have really thin beards. This makes me question the legitimacy of this sport. Given that his beard is about 6 inches thick, that would really help to cushion punches to the chin.

    Indeed, not only does it cushion the blow, it adds unfair intimidation to the fight, and potentially grants him superhuman strength.

    I agree, they definitely should apply the same rules regarding facial hair as they use in boxing to MMA.

    It inflicts retributive damage on his opponents fists.

    If Tanner kept his grizzly beard, he'd be unstoppable.

    It would suck having him laying on you if he were in your guard. His beard would tickle you to death. Can you imagine how many nasty things have been caught in there? Ehhh.

    I have to admit I thought the same thing when I first saw his beard. Aside from that it's ugly as hell.

    I couldn't agree more.

    Kimbo doesn't have a great chin; it's his balanc....er......beard.



    Bad beard = bad chin.

    Good, thick beard = great chin.
