    Like is this common place? Everyone else gets their last name in the title as a headline.

    Seems strange even from a promotional standpoint and kinda disrespectful.

    If you market yourself around the nickname for your own sponsors I don't see it as that much of an issues.

    They don't want any fighter to be bigger than UFC

    I don't think KZ has a problem with it, so why should you?

    I believe Chan Sung Jung has asked/chosen to be marketed as The Korean Zombie.

    It doesnt happen often but sometimes it does when their nickname is more popular than their actual name, Rampage is another good example.

    That’s his brand. It’s what he’s known by. What’s the issue?

    He has his own brand called Korean Zombie. UFC is actually fair is this marketing and that's not common.
