Hendricks: Beard Doesn’t Soften Power of Strikes

Johny Hendricks, on “The Savage Dog Show,” discussing whether his beard helps him take a punch:

“I don’t think it does anything. I really don’t. I’ve been hit without a beard and I’ve been hit with a beard. My first four or five fights, I really didn’t have that good of a beard. I didn’t have one at all for my first three fights and I got hit. It doesn’t matter. Four-ounce gloves, it hurts no matter which way you look at it. Now if these were 18-ounce gloves and you’ve got a beard and you fluff it out and somehow it makes it thicker where [a strike] doesn’t even touch your jaw, then that’s a different story. But as of yet, anybody who’s hit me, it still hurt. It hurts like hell. I’m not going to lie.”
