FHM Nation, meet Ogie Menor. Why we're talking about him today is kind of self-explanatory.
During the Blackwater Elite's PBA game against the Purefoods Star Hotshots last Tuesday night (November 18), the burly 6"2' wingman arrived at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in an outlandish hairstyle he describes as "the lizard cut."

No offense, kind sir, but what the hell were you thinking? "Para maiba naman, para hindi palaging mohawk," says Menor, who usually goes to a barber shop along Timog Avenue in Quezon City, to SPIN.ph "Pero pahahabain ko naman, eh. Mabilis humaba yung buhok ko, so 'pag humaba ulit, balik na sa mohawk."

Prior to this hairstyle, the 28-year-old PBA veteran was known for two things: his scrappy defense and the many on-court brawls he has been involved in. In fact, Menor was just a crazy move away from being associated with former NBA star Metta World Peace, and we guess his latest haircut pretty much does the trick.

Much like the "Artest formerly known as Ron," Menor's flagrant-prone fouls have prompted much bigger opponents to collapse on the floor, get back up, and chase him all the way to the dugout. This guy once took Paul Lee out in the first two minutes of the game, for crying out loud.

Menor also once took an elbow from Ryan Araña, got hit in the face by JR Quiñahan, and was shoved by fellow cagers more times than we can remember, but he keeps coming back for more.

Menor has figured in a number of ugly skirmishes in his PBA career. Once, he got into an altercation with Sol Mercado mere seconds after entering the game. This MRT train has no intention of slowing down.

When Freddie Roach pleaded the league not to hurt Manny Pacquiao, Blackwater coach Leo Isaac responded by assigning Menor to the Pambansang Kamao for their season opener. Fortunately, Menor opted to stay put. "Wala akong balak saktan siya o tirahin...baka magalit sa atin ang sambayanang Pilipino," he told reporters before the game. Phew!
