Michigan defensive lineman Chase Winovich recently had an opportunity to win $1,000. But that same opportunity could’ve potentially cost him his long, golden locks.

That opportunity was a potential bet with an online Fortnite player regarding last weekend’s fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov in Las Vegas. Winovich, a huge fan of McGregor, would’ve netted $1,000 if he won. However, if┬áNurmagomedov won the fight, the Michigan defensive lineman would’ve had to cut his hair.

Winovich wasn’t willing bite.

“I was playing online with this guy named Nick Mercs. He’s a Famous Twitch streamer from Fortnite,” Winovich said on the Jamie and Stoney Show on 97.1 The Ticket. “He offered me — if Conor McGregor wins, I’ll give you $1,000. But if he loses, you’ve got to cut your hair.

It’s a good thing Winovich didn’t take the bet. McGregor lost the fight and the defensive lineman’s famous locks would’ve been gone.

“I was very confident in Conor winning, but I said there’s now way I would cut my hair for $1,000,” Winovich said. “It’s just too a part of me. I couldn’t do it.”

Smart move by Winovich. He would’ve been almost unrecognizable without that long hair.
