Josh “The Warmaster” Barnett.
Jon “Bones” Jones.
Anthony “Rumble” Johnson.
These are some of my favorite nicknames that almost describe how these fighters fight somehow. Bones Jones is not just fun wordplay, it’s how he fights. He hits you with bones from every angle.
What about nicknames that don’t work so well? If you could rename a fighter, who and what would it be?
I never liked “The Dominator” for Dominic Cruz. I get the wordplay but it’s not so much his style. Maybe “The Professor.”
What ya got?
