UFC fighter Shanna Young cuts her hair ahead of her flyweight bout against Miranda Maverick at UFC Vegas 64 prelims.

Young failed to make the weight of 126 lbs and was exactly one pound above on her first attempt. In her second attempt, she still came overweight by 0.25lbs.

This motivated Young to make a bold move as she chopped off her hair. Fortunately, it worked and she was able to make the weight in time.

Shanna Young made her UFC debut in February 2020. In her short UFC career, she has so far won one out of her three fights.

Her maiden UFC win came earlier in April this year when she knocked out fellow American Gina Mazaney.

Other than Young, four more fighters missed weights at the UFC Vegas 64 weigh-ins. On the main card Grant Dawson missed the weight and is fined 30% of his fight purse.

UFC Vegas 64 is on Saturday, November 5th. Women's strawweight fight between Mariana Rodríguez and Amanda Lemos is the highlight of the event

The winner from Rodriguez and Lemos will be the strong contender to get the strawweight title shot against current champion Carla Esparza.
