The Boogeyman is only lame because Lister looks like he could have been on 90210. and the Nogs could have been a little more origional. At least the second one could have.

It is Matt "The LAW" Lindland not "The Lawn" hahah but i think I like "The Lawn" better.

Some of my favorites are, Forrest "The Meat Cleaver" Petz, Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett, David "The Crow" Louiseau and the best because it has become his name Cro Cop.

I second David "The Crow" Loiseau. I also like Andrei "The Pitbull" Arlovski and Paul "The Headhunter" Buentello. Renato "Babalu" Sobral is another good one.

For worst, Wesley "Cabbage" Correira is definitely up there. Vernon "Tiger" White is also pretty bad. Also, Elvis "The King of Rock n Rumble" Sinosic isn't very good.

The Worst has got to be the Pitbull. Like frickin a shitload of fighters have that name. Its actually lame now.
Paul 'the headhunter" Bunetllo is pretty cool
so are
Georges "Rush" St. Pierre
Vitor and BJ got good names but they are from the early days and havent resembled htem so much any more. The Prodigy and The Phenoem are pretty sweet names.

Isn't babalu a Brazillian chewing gum?

If so maybe "Sugar" Rashad (which has to be the worst nickname ever) should try something along those lines.

Rashad "Double Bubble" Evans

I'm of the opinion that if two guys in the same weight class want the same name, they have to fight for it. I'm mainly of this opinion because I want to see Scott "The Pitbull" Ferrozo fight Andrei "The Pitbull" Arlovski.

Edit: Oh yeah, and I think Ramon "The Turbine From Hell" Dekkers is the best nickname.

Never liked:

Mark "the smaching machine" Kerr was stupid, just too much to it...

Sorry Barney, I love ya, but the "Baby-Faced Assassin" has to go...

So does the "Soul Assassin" I can't remember who that is though

Come on Jeremy, "Gumby"??? WTF

"The Muscle Shark"??? Ya we get it, your big dude, coulda just gone with the Shark or something

I always liked:

"Ice-Cold" Igor Vovchanchyn

Pedro "the Rock" Rizzo

Don't know why but "Cabbage" Correra always sounded good to me

The original "Croatian Sensation" Pat Militech

I've always liked the fact that Hughes and Fedor have no official nickname. That being said

worst-" Da Spyder" -Kendall Grove - "The Huntington beach bad boy "-Tito
"The axe murderer" Wandy- " the nightmare" Diego- "the heat" Karo- the worst ever IMO " the world's most dangerous man" K. Shamrock

Best-" Iceman " Liddell " Shaolin" Vitor Ribiero- " Shogun" Rua- " The prodigy" BJ Penn - " the Phenom" Vitor Belfor- " The fireball Kid" Gomi- , but " The Gracie hunter" is the coolest to me.
