There’s Something About Hendricks Dana White Just Doesn’t Like

March 14, 2014 6:13 pm by Connor Woodard

At a recent UFC Media Day Scrum, UFC President Dana White was singing the praises of Welterweight contender Johny Hendricks. However, there was one thing about him that White isn’t a fan of. The beard. “I like everything about Johny Hendricks,” White said. “He’s a great guy, a hard worker, and he’s one of those guys that tries to go out there and finish fights…he’s exciting to watch…he’s a great guy. I’ve got one thing I don’t love, his beard. I’m not a big beard fan.

However, when asked if he would ever force Hendricks or any fighter to shave his beard, White said: “The commission is supposed to do that,” White said. “If a beard is out of control, the commission is supposed to make them shave it. That’s the way it works in boxing. For some reason not around here. No offense to some bearded men in the back.”
