Is the funny thing the fact that 'Paul Harris' is under 'other names' ?

If so... huh? :S Its been there for ages as far as I remember? Am I missing something? And it's not only this forum that call him Paul Harris.

I remember a while back I was reading about this Paul Harris chap and was like WhoTF is that? After putting two and two together I got a hearty laugh and still smile to this day when I hear it, dunno why.

Personally if I were him I would feel honored, because he has risen above mediocrity to have a nick name that when uttered sends chills to the very bones...leg bones that is. Plus it's pretty funny IMO.

Quite a while back, when I was pretty new into MMA and just a lurker around here, I actually typed "Paul Harris" in google, to find out who the hell is that guy. :thumb02:

Far as I'm concerned, I get closer to his actual name saying Paul Harris, then I do when trying to pronounce Palhares. Before this nickname, nobody really knew how to say it.

Apart from being a very sensible and functional nickname... Its also fecking hilarious.
