Johny Hendricks’ Beard Serves a Purpose, You Guys

Maybe you thought, dear fight fan, that UFC welterweight contender Johny Hendricks sports a lumberjack/late 19th century bureaucrat type beard just to get your girlfriend all in a tizzy. Well, you’d be wrong.

Hendricks told reporters this week that the burly-man beard he grows during training camps actually serves a deeper purpose. “It reminds me that I have a goal I’m trying to reach, and that’s a fight,” he said.

“That’s a fight this Saturday [against Josh Koscheck at UFC on Fox 3]. After the fight, win or lose, I do my job and I go home and shave it. The next morning, I’m still in that fight mode, I go to the bathroom and check the mirror and, ‘oh, I’m clean-shaven.’ At that moment, it hits me. Everything goes away.”

The full video interview is after the jump.

Hendricks said that after he shaves he goes back to being family man and normal human being. In the MMA Fighting video below, he also talks about getting his aggressiveness and confidence back and being honest about wanting the 170 pound belt, so watch it already! And don’t forget to check out our live blog and commentary for UFC on Fox 3 Saturday night. You won’t get that much information and sass in one place, anywhere else.
