Maynard Camp File Complaint About Clay Guida's Hair | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
Gray Maynard’s camp has filed a complaint about Clay Guida’s hair going into the UFC on FX 4 main event. Maynard’s camp feel like Guida’s hair gives him an unfair advantage and reported the issue to the New Jersey Athletic Control Board (NJACB). Guida will now be forced to braid his hair going into the fight.

Nick Lembo of NJACB counsel commented on the complaint and says Guida’s camp were not happy about the request but will comply to avoid a hearing on the issue.

“He doesn’t want to do it, and I don’t believe he’s 100 percent happy about it, but he’s being very understanding and very cooperative about it and he agreed to it. Otherwise, if he said, ‘No, I’m not going to do that,’ we’d have to have a hearing on it and let both sides present their case and have a commissioner’s ruling on the issue.”

However when asked about the issue Maynard told Duane Finley that he could not care less about Guida’s hair and was not involved in the decision.

“Maynard also cleared up the Guida hair issue. Maynard Said he personally had nothing to do with it & doesn’t care about Guida’s hair. … Inquiry came from someone close to his camp who was looking into how commissions handle the issue.”

    how fuckin stupid!!

  2. The F_cK? says:

    Right… he will probably fight better now because he can see the punches coming.

  3. Zack says:

    So let me get this straight… Clay guidas long hair is an unfair advantage but trt is not?

  4. Xaninho says:

    Hahaha the athletic commissions are a joke! Allowing fighters to juice up to 6:1 t/e and at the same time stating long hair is an advantage? Hahahaha and here I thought they couldn’t get more crooked.

    • Majestyk says:

      Do you understand English?The commission never stated that “long hair is an advantage”. The NJACB simply notified Guida’s camp of the “request”. Had Guida refused to comply, the commission would have held a hearing and subsequently made a ruling. It’s all there in black & white, dumbass.

      • UFC : Ultimate Fighter Corporation says:

        someone needs a chill pill.

        • Majestyk says:

          I think that the person who needs the “chill pill” is the person who overreacts to an article, based on poor reading comprehension, then continues his never-ending whining about t/e ratios.

        • nice says:

          +1 … All Xaninho does is complain about test ratios because he is Silvas boyfriend and 99% of his post are either about Test levels / trt, silva, and chael…. GET SLIVAS NUTS OUT OF YOUR MOUTH Xaninho!!!

        • Xaninho says:

          And all you do is following me around and bitch about my comments. If you got a thing for me please move on I don’t swing that way waterboy.

        • Semtex says:

          Majestyk is pretty right

      • Xaninho says:


        The mere fact they would even consider to have a hearing about it is ludicrous already you dumb fuck! Athletic commissions should worry about PED’s and their crazy judges decisions instead of some dude’s hairdo.

        You two are qualified to marry eachother, you’re both suckass bitches!

    • Majestyk says:

      Do you speak English? Where in the article did it say that the commission stated that “long hair is an advantage”? The NJACB simply notified Guida’s camp of the “request”. Had Guida refused to comply, the commission would have held a hearing, and made a subsequent ruling. It’s all there in black & white, dumbass!

    Anyone ever tested the nevada athleltc commissionioners for banned substance.

  6. stephen riddle says:

    Wtf what next?

  7. Kirk says:

    Let the mind fuck begin

  8. Michael B. says:

    This has to be the most moronic thing I’ve ever heard… wtf is going on in the heads of the athletic commission? Next we’ll hear that Roy’s bushy beard and magic mullet are unfair advantages, come the fuck on!

  9. Nick says:

    Why’s it such a big deal if Gray doesn’t care about it? Like it should be his decision.

  10. Tito says:

    This must be why chuck Liddell was so good. It’s all in the Mohawk

  11. Clay says:

    It’s like the story of Sampson in the bible. At least he don’t have to cut it

  12. WrestlingRules says:

    Fuckin’ Maynard cop-out bitch-ass move.. What do you mean somebody from my camp? Don’t u fuckin’ pay that bitch lawyer??? Tell him to shut the fuck up and fight….

  13. CanILive says:

    watch clay knock out gray lol

  14. Gary Oak says:

    Clay will obey the ruling and braid his hair but he said he will not paint his finger and toe nails and wear lipstick if Maynard makes him his bitch in the fight.

    But on a side note at my gym we did make one guy braid his hair because when we would roll and he was in top position his hair would be soaked with sweat and it would drip into our faces and eyes. Which is some sick crap

  15. maurice says:

    going with the urijah faber braids so far seems to always bring success. guida sucks, but with braids, ill bet my house on him!

  16. stemm says:

    Maynard is a bitch the last thing he should be consened about is guidas hair he should be consened about keeping a pace like clay without getting tired Maynard is a bitch.

  17. i'm about to get trampled says:

    I actually agree with this. I think he should have to braid his hair. He is known for his constant gnp and wrestling. In his past few fights all I have noticed is when he is on top he always is going forehead to forehead rubbing his hair all in the guy on bottoms face then postures up real fast to gnp.. this can be a huge distraction and when he has someone against the cage with all that hair in their face while rubbing foreheads, it is almost impossible to see where anything is coming from. Also, it has to get realllllyyyy distracting and maybe even making the opponents skin irritated due to all the wrestling and head rubbing he does… I’m just saying that having to braid your hair isn;t a big deal. ITS A FIGHT NOT A FASHION SHOW!!

  18. Dick Diaz says:

    the NSAC sucks; this is the same commission that made a big fuss over Diaz’s weed situation and gave Bradley a win last saturday…

  19. Balls McGee says:

    Youre all are retards! First of all it said NEW JERSEY not NEVADA ,second it also said he requested it there was no ruling. Guida just agrees to do it. Can you retards not read?

  20. Someofyallneedalife says:

    All i gotta say is half yall clowns on this site an many others are simply internet trolls .. Claiming to know everything bout mma downgrading fighters and arguing over bullshit .. To the ones that keep it real know their place and stay on topic . Yall are dope.. To the rest of you get fucked Trolls

  21. Baldness says:

    Maybe they should complain about Ebersole’s chest arrow hair too. And maybe Gaudinot’s green hair, and McKenzy’s Captain Margan hair… Shit lets start complaining that guys with bald heads and shaved heads have an unfair advantage because they can slip out of grappling techniques better than guys with hair…

  22. pthance says:

    This is stupid…they must really be afraid of Guida if his hair is an issue. Fight or gtfo, unfair advantage….what a bunch of pussies. If you are afraid of someones hair you are in the wrong damn sport.

  23. Kjtrlt says:

    Hilarious. Next they will outlaw the Cris Leben style finger adn toenailslll

  24. mike says:

    Fighting with long hair sucks, kills peripheral vision. On the other hand, a bouncing head of hair might obscure the head as a target. I wonder if Big Country’s beard makes it harder to chin him….

  25. Nick diaz all daaay says:

    Have the hearing , make him look like a bitch lol

This will help enhance the probability of being found every time a user performs a location-specific search. You might be much more likely to be the very best of the business in your city or state than globally, and so you achieve greater rankings in local searches.
