    I was thinking about how “Triple C” will never catch on (or at least I hope it won’t), but many fighters actually end up becoming better known by their nicknames than their real names. (I’m not talking about abbreviated names like JLau/KenFlo or initials like GSP/DC,

    Here is who I came up with along with a few that are arguable.
    Who did I miss?

    CroCop
    Tank
    Cyborg (w)
    Cyborg (m)
    Rampage
    Shogun
    Jacare
    Cowboy
    Big Nog
    Little Nog
    Mighty Mouse
    Karate Hottie
    The Korean Zombie
    Mayhem
    Kimbo Slice

    Borderline:

    Big Country
    Showtime
    Wonder Boy
    Rumble
    California Kid
    Uncle Creepy

    I think Borrachinha was headed that way, and decided to change that, I can't remember why.

    I don't know even the real names of Kimbo slice and Dada 5000. Tank Abbott I really had to think about - David.
    Nogeira bros are special because they have two. Big nog/little nog and also minotauro/minotouro. No one calls them Antonio Rodrigo/Antonio rogerio.
    Korean superboy's another. Big daddy goodridge. Shoe face. I'm sure there's a few Brazilians I can't think of right now

    That and Beastin 25/8 are the undisputed top 2 of all time.

    Number 3 for me is the TazMexican Devil.
