Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters are known both for their toughness and the crowd-pleasing variety of fighting disciplines they bring to the cage. Inside this intimidating battleground pride, money and reputation are at all stake, but the last thing that anyone is usually fighting for is… hair.
, however, is at the centre of a tussle between red-haired American UFC fighter Sam Alvey and Canadian Elias Theodorou, known as The Spartan. When Alvey spoke to the press after a recent win in Australia, he seized the chance to “call out” Theodorou, the man he wants to fight next, who also just happens to boast that he has the best hair in MMA.
“I tell you what,” said Alvey at the press conference, “If I lose, I’ll shave my head. When you lose, I want you shaving your head because I’m coming for your hair.”
MMA website Sherdog reported that Theodorou seems to have taken the comments in fighting spirit, jumping on Twitter to say that “whatever day we trade fists shall forever be known as ‘kick a ginger’ day.”
It is not yet known if a match between the two fighters will actually be staged.
