UFC fighters aren’t required to take on nicknames, but the majority of competitors in the promotion take on an alias. And why not? At the very least, it boosts your pre-fight introduction, and for some warriors, it gives way to an entirely new persona.
Some of the greats nailed it with their nicknames to the point where you won’t ever hear their actual name without it. Ever heard of Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell? Case in point.
Among the current pool of UFC fighters, there are all kinds of epic nicknames. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva represent for the season vets, while “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung and Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve hold it down for the next generation.
But for every nickname that sends chills down your spine, there’s one that makes you cringe. For different reasons, several fighters have taken on highly questionable titles, and I’m here to call them out.
