Johnny Hendricks Clean Shaven (Again)


Growing his beard has been a ritual of his since 2008.  When ever he get’s a fight he puts the razor in the drawer for a couple of months during training camp.  The thicker it gets the more time he’s devoted to pre-fight work.

When a fight ends, win or lose, he shaves it off.  In an interview with MMA Fighting in 2012 he claimed it was a stress reliever to wake up, look in the mirror and see his clean shaven face.  It allowed him to focus on being more of a dad and husband versus being a fighting machine.

We can likely expect to see his beard grow back for his upcoming title shot agains Georges St. Pierre.   How do you feel about his beard?  Is he better off with or without it?

Luca Rajabi
Luca has been passionate about martial arts and eastern philosophies since childhood. As an athlete, inventor and entrepreneur Luca founded SciFighting on the principal lessons learned from his life experience "fighting" to preserve his health and fitness. Although born with inherently poor and inconsistent health he pushed forward to learn as much as he could about the sciences of technology, medicine and mental health. Years of study, working with physicians and combined analysis finally began to bare fruit by his early twenties. Starting with Fencing, cross training and body building then moving to Boxing, Western Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiujitsu, Eskrima and an eclectic assortment of self defense techniques. Luca's core philosophy is that to win a battle every fighter must balance their mental and physical health. Luca has said that "With well developed technique, conditioning and mental focus a sound strategy will most often win over brute strength alone." It is in this spirit that he passionately advocates for the "Science of Fighting".
