Roy Nelson and the 10 Ugliest Fighters in MMA
Glitz and glamour aren't words typically associated with MMA fighters.
Fighters are typically more concerned with punching and kicking than getting haircuts or shaving.
Whether it's a less than impressive physique or some weird facial features, these are the men that have to be classified as the ugliest in MMA.
10. Joe Lauzon
Joe Lauzon is one the more talented lightweights in the UFC. He recently picked up a quick submission victory over rising star Melvin Guillard.
Unfortunately for J-Lau, he also has one of the creepiest faces in MMA. His voice doesn't do him any favors, either.
9. Wanderlei Silva
"The Axe Murderer" is one of the most fearsome individuals in MMA history.
Nobody will deny that Silva has one of the best "mean mugs" in the business, but you won't find yourself getting lost in his eyes—especially since he looks like an entirely different person following his facial surgery.
8. Brian Ebersole
Brian Ebersole's UFC debut saw him use some exciting moves, such as a cartwheel kick.
Unfortunately, it saw the worst (or best?) use of bodily hair in an UFC event. Instead of fans talking about his impressive win over Chris Lytle, they were talking about the arrow shaved onto his stomach and chest.
7. Josh Koscheck
Josh Koscheck certainly has a way with fans.
His mouth makes fans despise him, but his hair makes them hate him. His trash talking with Paul Daley produced one of the funniest images in UFC history.
Even if "fraggle" was a nice guy, people still wouldn't like him because of his hair.
6. Antonio Silva
He's the subject of much speculation. People have gone into the wilderness in search of him.
Film reels, that allegedly have video evidence of his existence, have been discredited for years.
Well folks we can put the myth to rest—Bigfoot really does exist, and he fights for Strikeforce.
5. CB Dollaway
I'm not sure what people dislike more about CB Dollaway, his attitude or his face.
If you ever wanted to end an internet photo debate on top, posting a pic of Dollaway's face tends to be one that can't be topped.
His nickname is "The Doberman", and you know what people say about ugly people and dogs. Expect to see Dollaway walking backwards in the near future.
4. Tiequan Zhang
Tiequan Zhang has one main issue that contributes to the downfall of his looks.
His hair line is so receded that it makes his forehead look huge. Zhang looks like the kid in the wheelchair from The Hills Have Eyes film.
If anyone has seen All About the Benjamins, I'll let Mike Epps express how I feel about Zhang.
"You ain't got a forehead, you got a 'five head.' I bet when you dream, you don't have dreams; you have movies."
At least he's making a lot of royalty money with all those alien images that are everywhere.
3. Jonathan Brookins
Jonathan Brookins won the Ultimate Fighter in less than impressive fashion.
Also less than impressive is Brookins' appearance. His face is weird and his hair looks like it's about one day away from being dreads.
2. Roy Nelson
Roy Nelson is known as "the fat man who can."
His physical appearance has been the subject of many jokes, but now fans have a new area to turn their comedic attentions too.
Given that it's so close to Christmas time and Nelson could be looking for a new job if he loses to Cro Cop this Saturday, he's clearly been preparing for job hunting for mall Santa Claus openings.
The beard is not only poorly maintained, but also has grey hair mixed with the brown.
Oh, and did I mention he has a mullet as well? Yes Roy Nelson you are oozing with machismo.
1. Tim Sylvia
The name is synonymous with terrible these days. He's like the perfect storm of ugliness, with his lack of training and other physical features.
I honestly don't know where to begin to breakdown Sylvia's lack of appearance. Maybe it's his facial hair styling? The flabby midsection? The terrible hair cut? I don't know where to start, so we will just leave it as option d. All of the above.
Just like his career, there's no hope for "The Maine-iac's" looks.
