    For some inexplicable reason, I cringe whenever Bruce Buffer reads Benson Henderson's name as "Benson 'Smooth' Henderson". I prefer Bendo, even if that nickname was ripped straight from Dan's.

    So what say you?

    I'm sick of the nickname Pitbull, though one of my favourite fighters have that name in Thiago Alves.

    I think Black Fedor is a stupid name but I don't know if that counts.

    Beat me to it. Anything really that is just super corny and has a lot of fighters using it.

    On the other hand, there are some unique ones that i love. Nick "The Ninja of Love" is probably my favorite.

    Lol, I definitely agree. I thought his former moniker, "The Waterboy", was pretty sweet actually, points for originality and it's ironic in a cool way since it's such a misnomer. "Ares" is super lame and dumb, but it actually suits Rory's awkward, serial killer-esque personality though.... and that's not a good thing haha, the nickname just reminds me of why I'm not a fan of him.

    I always thought Dean of Mean was pretty lame too

    i hate cheesy movie ripoff nicknames;

    Natural Born Killer
    American Psycho
    etc.

    are we suppose to not get the reference? are we suppose to think they came up with that all by themselves? and think theyre really badass for having seen movies in the 90s?

    whats next? Cain "Lethal Weapon 4" Velasquez? "oh yea, all my buddies at the gym call me lethal weapon 4 cause i'm such a lethal weapon 4ish type of fighter i guess"

    probably the one that bothered me the most was Kenflo but I don't know.

    I thought Kieth "The Dean of Mean" Jardine was an awesome nickname.

    Ares is mentioned a lot hear and yeah I agree.. I think he needs one that suits him better.

    The Warmaster is the best nickname in MMA today. Mainly because it was taken from a Bolt thrower song
