I don't think this will be quite the same as baseball cards, there is no MMA season and a lot happens in a year. It would be very difficult to keep them updated. Also, isn't Hendo's real nickname "Hollywood"??? What's next they gonna call the HW champ BIG NOG!!! LOL

Well, he actually prefers 'Dangerous', but it's all the same.

If I still collected trading cards I'd have been all over these. Slip some Gina Carano cards in there and I'll buy a few packs.

Yeah I have heard that one too, a couple of guys have more than 1 nickname...it's just a question of which one is "Official"...I can't ever tell anymore...or care really. I just think that it's going to be a difficult endeaver considering the way that the rankings and shit change so fast....Wandy going from champ to three losses...Chuck, Crocop, Hendo...I'd hate to try and keep track of all that on a trading card!

Thats awesome, I can just picture the look on some kids face when he gets a Tim Silvia instead of the Liddell.

Put small squares of the mat or shorts in the cards, Donruss!

Not sure about the US but in England, trading cards and sticker albums tend to appeal mainly to children.
