    I don't think they can use "Child Rapist"

    Like if someone wanted to be referred to as Joe "The Rapist" Son? Yeh I doubt they'd be down with that.

    No racism or profanity I'd imagine.

    Well they allow "Brown Pride" and "Black Magic", so ZUFFA does at least allow race-related nicknames.

    Ryan Bader was told he could not call himself "The Master".

    That phrase is loaded with a particular kind of social meaning that the other two are not - so most likely no.

    Zuffa did allow "White Steel" though, in Strikeforce.

    Also, considering they censor n***** in songs, I doubt they would allow that either.

    If Mitrione doesnt get cut, he should change his nickname from "Meathead" to "Twitchy Toe."

    He's from my town and is fighting Kitaoka in a short time. I've rolled with him (years ago) more than a couple times, and despite the things he says occasionally, and his nick-name, he is actually a really decent person.. Helps out kids with disabilities and volunteers for stuff. Big fight next week, I hope he wins.

    But then my joke about Schaub choking the Meat wouldn't work.

    Boo, boo indeed.

    Didn't Antonio McKee get away with being announced as "Mandingo" by Buffer? Or was that outside the UFC?
