Going after the long hair—cheap move Gray
Gray Maynard’s camp filed a complaint with the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board over Guida’s long hair. The result, Guida now has to braid back his ‘crazy hair’ for the fight.
Really? he has to braid his F23King hair because Maynard’s camp filed a complaint? Why didn’t they just call his mom and tell on him? What bullsh1t, Maynard and his camp are pulling some Floyd Mayweather/Pacquiao sh1t now. What’s next? Complaints about fighters painted toenails, cause the color is distracting and they might hide some James Bond 007 poison in the nail polish? Grow the F23K up and stop this nonsense, I’m looking at you Gray Maynard.
Lembo said the nature of the complaint was that Guida’s hair “could pose a distraction to their fighter … and that they thought it gave an unfair advantage to their opponent.”
“Clay chose to avoid any distractions and simply complied,” Fosco told MMAjunkie.com. “Clay will be braiding his hair back. Clay is not focused on this and has one objective: winning. Nothing will distract him from his goal.”
In the case of Maynard and Guida, Nick Lembo, counsel for the NJSACB, said a hearing was avoided when Guida agreed to Maynard’s request.
“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,” Lembo told MMAjunkie.com. “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.”
Gray Maynard is denying that he filed a complaint, and is unaware that his camp did. I call BullSh1t! It’s a cheap move and if he doesn’t know what his camp is doing on his behalf, he’s got some big problems.
Maynard, who contacted MMAjunkie.com following the publication of this report, said he was not aware of his camp’s request.
“I never filed a complaint,” Maynard said. “This was the first I’ve ever heard about it.”
Stay Classy Gray Maynard, stay classy.
