I like the name Rampage. It seems to suite him.

The worst has to be The Legend. Altough Frank Shamrock is a Legend calling himself that just shows how much he is in love with himself!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I'm not a fan of Tim Sylvia, but I like his nickname, that's some nice wordplay right there.

Best - Has to be "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock. I mean when Bruce Buffer announced that it sent chills through everone. He isn't now obviuosly, but he really was one of the world's most dangerous humans in the '90s, though I don't think he had the nickname yet.

Also, for some reason I like "The New York Badass" Phil Baroni

Another good nickname that was derived by some classic victories goes to Sakuraba with "The Gracie Hunter"

On paper it may not mean much, but the classic fights and history that crowned him with that title is a cornerstone in MMA and its a constant reminder why Sak is the legend he is.

Yeah, I agree with this, and would like to mention how much more I respect the nicknames given by the Japanese than those fighters give themselves. As SP mentioned, Sakky didn't give himself that nickname - He earned it. That's pretty powerful, and how I think a nickname should be. I think the Japanese in general are more into MMA currently, and so they'll get behind a fighter and dub him with a nickname, but I really love the nicknames that are placed upon a fighter. For those who don't know, BJ's nickname was given to him before he ever entered MMA in Hawaiin papers covering his BJJ tournaments. That's the kind of stuff I'm talking about. Even Sherk's name kind of strikes me as awesome because it's a reflection of how much he impressed the Japanese crowds.

And, in light of that, it can be seen why dicks like Rashad Evans nicknaming themselves something as legendary as "Sugar" pisses me off.
