Brian Ebersole is on an 11-fight win streak, and took his bout with James Head just a month after beating T.J. Waldburger. Helping out the UFC by taking a fight on short notice will usually land a fighter on UFC president Dana White's good side. However, White is not a fan of Ebersole's manscaping, which usually has his chest hair shaved into a "hairrow" pointing up.
MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani tweeted the bad news during the UFC 149 press conference.
Ouch. For some reason, White is not a fan of fighters expressing themselves in the cage. Jason Miller and Tom Lawlor's entrances also drew his ire. It's a shame, because with more than 400 fighters on the roster, little touches of personality make a fighter stand out. Ebersole hasn't lost with the hairrow, so why would he stop now? Rock that hairrow, Brian.
