    Just a fun thread list of fighters that either do/don't already have nicknames, however also have other 'unofficial' nicknames that I've heard Sherdog fans refer them to...

    Cain Velasquez - Cardio Cain, The Terminator, El Toro (original nickname that didn't work out)
    Vitor Belfort - The Lion (self proclaimed)
    Randy Couture - Captain America
    Gegard Mousasi - The Moose
    Dan Henderson - Dangerous Dan, H-Bomb Henderson
    Mark Hunt - Hunto (thanks to his Japanese fans)
    Chris Leben - The Cat Smasher (original nickname that didn't work out)
    Matt Mitrione - Meathead
    Keith Jardine - The Chimpanzee
    Paul Daley - The Sucker Puncher (because he is)
    Alexander Gustafsson - The Viking
    Thiago Silva - The Wife Beater (because he is)
    Josh Koscheck - Kos
    Jeremy Horn - Gumby
    Sam Stout - Hands of Foam
    Josh Barnett - The Babyfaced Warmaster
    Jon Fitch / Jake Shields - The Human Wet Blanket (both can take this nickname for all I care)

    I see you put over five minutes into making this thread. Unfortunate really since it's going to end up in the wasteland.

    That was his original nickname, but the UFC made him change it because they thought people would think it was promoting animal abuse. Leben meant it like "I smashed that cat" like you would say "I smashed that dude" or whatever, but it is hard to tell that from just the nickname or without knowing that is how Leben talks.

    Also, I've seen Cris "Cyroid" and Cris "Cryborg" Santos/Justino quite a bit.
