    I always like it when someone is known by one single name and everyone knows who they're talking about, like:

    "Prince"
    "Beyonce"
    "Bowie"
    "Morrissey"


    Anthony Johnson is a very generic and forgettable name, but "Rumble" just sticks and describes his fighting style perfectly. "Rampage" is also a great nickname for the same reasons. I mean, what even is Rampage's first name anyway? dude has only went by Rampage Jackson since forever <Grimes01>

    “Ruthless” is pretty good as well.

    I prefer multiple word nicknames that aren't even true, like "Hands of Stone".

    Nope, it's Korean Zombie. The announcers and on-screen graphics all use it instead of his real name.

    Shogun is the correct answer. Rua’s own wife probably calls him Shogun.

    The measuring stick for a great nickname, is if it becomes another word with a dual definition, like a noun or a verb.
    You got hit by a Hendo.
    You got Hendo'd.
    Yep. That qualifies.
