Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Even Gegard Mousasi Hates That Stupid Nickname

(After being assured several times that it will not steal his soul or condemn him to hell, Mousasi relaxes his usual prohibitions against graven images.)

For a bad, bad man, Gegard Mousasi sure has a lame, lame nickname.  According to Strikeforce, it’s “The Dreamcatcher,” which, as far as we know, is a woven trinket associated with Native American tribes that is often found hanging off the rear-view mirror of a hippie’s car.  In what way is Mousasi like a dreamcatcher?  We have no freaking clue.  Judging by what he told Cage Writer’s Maggie Hendricks, neither does he:

"My friend came up with it, so blame it on him. I don’t like nicknames, to be honest. I have a lot of nicknames. They called me Kingo in Japan, they called me the Young Vagabond, but that sounds bad, then Soldier of Fortune, now they call me the Dream Catcher. He said that’s a good name. It’s original. I read on the internet that people don’t like the name. [Ed. note: Whoops] I’d rather have no nickname, but with my style, you can’t really put a name on it. A good nickname for me hasn’t come up. I told Strikeforce that I didn’t want to use a nickname, but they put it up anyway."

Your friend came up with the nickname and then convinced you that it was a good one?  Pardon us for saying so, Gegard, but if he was really your friend he wouldn’t have done that to you.

“Young Vagabond” is not a bad nickname, though it becomes obsolete once you get old or establish a permanent residence.  “Soldier of Fortune” sounds like something a fourteen-year-old came up with, and “Kingo” isn’t even a word.  Stupid Japanese.  Clearly, this man is in need of some help, so we call upon you, the Potato Nation.  You did it for Shane Carwin (even though he chose to go a different direction).  Why don’t you see what you can do for Mousasi.

Mousasi is among the best knockout-artists in MMA, as 18 of his 31 career wins came via KO. But, for "The Dreamcatcher," he feels as though he's constantly behind the eight-ball when it comes to training and conditioning. "So far as technology and just how they..

"Moose Sauce", "Butt-floss", "Midget Toss", should he fight Kos? I'm at a loss, etc., etc...and on like that, you get it. The nickname "Moose Sauce" does have a nice ring to it though, I think.
