OK, I'll go through with this but I figured a new thread was in order. If one or more people are interested in some sort of prop bet on the fight, I will bet my hair against cash.

Terms something like:

If I win, I get a reasonable sum of cash.

I lose, I shave my spectacular head of hair and donate it to one of them groups that makes wigs for people with cancer.

As for scoring, I can see two options.

1) Conor wins at least 3 rounds on official judge's cards. (There are 3 judges. So anything between 2 scoring it a draw and one for Conor, or all three for Conor).

2) Three journalists who will score the fight are chosen and their cards are used.

]How much cash I gotta put up vs you shaving your head?[/spoiler]



Hmmm. Maybe we can get a pool goin'.

Just so the stakes are clear, here is the hair in question.



It's probably like 2 feet long or so. Halfway down my back, in any case.



So McG doesn't have to win the fight, he only has to win 3 rounds of it, correct?

If so, I'll take a piece of McGregor. But need full explanation of the bet first, and the amount.

If Conor wins three rounds, I'll grow my hair back.

LOL

Can I parlay a full head shave, Charlie Chaplin mustache, and a tattoo of the Hindu symbol for peace, life, luck, and good fortune (on the forehead)? Then a secondary bet as to whether you can survive a full year after that.

Ok, Rig. I'll start the pool at $50.

Conor wins.
Conor loses, but wins 3 rounds.
Official scoring, including any result from 2 draw, 1 Conor , counts as a won round.

Keep in mind, you'll not want to just shave it and collect the leavings. There has to be at least 9 inches usable hair, collected like in a ponytail and bound together before cutting it off. My nieces used to do it, so I'm somewhat familiar, but there's a particular way they do it so it can be accepted, and I don't know the details. I think there are hair places that cut it for free/the donation.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I propose Greg be given time to insure his locks go to a good cause, rather than an immediate head shave.
Do I have a second?
The next Vegas events aren't until March 2018. One at McMullins, one at Nine Drunk Irishmen

Not a bad idea, and I'd agree if I won (assuming Rig agrees to fundraise), but just to emphasize, the main point is to donate the hair itself, not to raise money through shaving his head. That would be a bonus.

Aw, why not something challenging. This haircut for a week.

There's no secret. Just know what you're talking about before you open your mouth.

I assume shaving his head includes all facial hair.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

I'll do whatever with my facial hair. Shave it. Stupid mustache, etc. The only catch is that it is not very thick, so I don't really have the ability to grow a Chaplin.

I'll also get a dumb haircut, provided it doesn't interfere with the donation. However, I think shaving is the way to go. Has kind of a WWE feel. And nobody will agree on which dumb haircut I should get.

This is going to take more than $50. I guess everyone other than Babs wants to deprive children with cancer of having a wonderful head of hair.

If I throw down on a nice crispy Hamilton, will that make it worth it?

I dont want to bet against Mayweather. If you shave your head and super glue your ponytail to your tailbone, I'll give you $10/month if you live with a tail. Six months max, then the tail is your choice. I'm not paying for someone to shampoo it, that's your business.
