A beard can signify a number of things to a number of different people. Some hate beards and some love them. The one thing we should all agree on is that a good beard is the sign of a badass. These 5 men fit that description to a key.

haha...yeah Tanner gets the sympathy vote everytime here. If we had to pick a #6, maybe Fitch's scraggly mess or Brock Lesnar's beastly viking beard.

A few guys that I was considering that didn't make the list were Dustin Hazelett, Tank Abbott, Fitch, Lesnar, Court McGee, Dave Herman and Harold Howard.

Also, Tanner ftw

There's a surprising amount of beards in the UFC lately. I'm really not into facial hair, but I guess it does work to make some guys more memorable/recognizable. The worst for me is the pseudo-beard that guys like Griggs have (sorry, not sure if there is a specific name for this style). It's just weird.

I guess if a guy has to have the beard going, I prefer the trimmed/neat/short variety over the full on moses/amish thing. The shorter beards look more badass to me.

I wonder if Dave Herman kept his hairy mystique going after the last fight. It was hilarious and definitely a fun look, but I'm hoping he's shaved and smooth by the time his next fight rolls around.

Roy Nelson's beard trimming style always confused me. Fighters (like Jones last Saturday) like to rock beards at the weigh-in, then trim them before the fight (then trim them.. good tongue twister) to make sure their face is nice and slippery.

I've never seen a fighter rock a mountain-man beard, keep the mountain-man for the fight, then cut it for the presser. As confounding as Nelson can be sometimes, hard not to like such a gregarious personality in the sport. I'm disappointed he didn't make good with his Facebook promise though :(. (Roy promised he would drop to 205 if he got to 100k Facebook likes. He got the likes and reneged on the deal.)

See I thought this was on chins. Am I the only guy that likes to refer to a guys ability to take a punch as having a nice beard?

I'd have to say Brock's beard is the most bad ass looking when he sported it, with a close second from Arlovski.

No, I've heard it a few times recently but if I was writing about the ability to take a punch I'd call it Top 5 chins. There's more of a chance of it coming up in a Google search that way. Since the article is actually about beards I used the word beard in the title so that a search picks it up easier.

I dunno. I've never been a fan of the blondish beards.

Dave Hermans gorilla suit he wore to fight Struve was pretty gnarly.


I was actually a huge fan of Hazeletts beard.

As for Arlovski, this was my first post ever on this site...
