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.”Tags: Clay Guida, featured, Gray Maynard, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc news
