I think it's time we officially changed it to Don "To Catch a Predator" Frye.

Can Hong Man Choi's head be any unproportionally bigger, please?

Good lord, it's like a freaking Sputnik.

@ Popetastic,

What about Renato "Babalu" Sobral? Almost everyone I know just calls him Babalu and I'd be surprised if some of them actually knew his real name!

How can you miss the man with two nicks - Minotauro, Big Nog?

Response to "The Bloc":

Don't know her name, but she must have an enormous vagina.

the google image linked to the Boogeyman Dean Lister is the best ever

what the fuck is a "muscle shark" ?
Jeff- March 14, 2008 at 3:07 am
I think Kimbo Slice should be on the list, seeing as how it's a nickname.

I agree with Wanderlei's nickname being #1, he definitly got the pick of the litter.

And lastly thank you for not putting "the ice man" on the list.

Nicknames are lame as hell. You have to have a really good one for it to stick. I can count on one hand how many guys I actually refer to by their nicknames. And fortunately for Cage Potato's judgment, all three of them are on this list:

That Frye comment was rad.

I always thought the 'snowman' nickname was a reference to cocaine, but I guess Monson does kinda look like a snowman... big old bald white head and a broken carrot for a nose.
The Bloc- March 13, 2008 at 9:51 pm
who's that chick with the Techno Freak....err.. Goliath ?
the.glza- March 13, 2008 at 9:23 pm
american psycho is one of the worst nicknames ever. just psycho is fine -- wtf! am i alone on this?

i'm not real crazy about axe murderer either -- just murderer is fine... we don't use axes in ufc so that deserves another wtf.

the others are fine...

cyborg ftw...
Rich S.- March 13, 2008 at 9:08 pm
ok, cw, that was freakin' hilarious!!

the sexual predator.. hahahaha..


i used to make jokes about Monson.. saying that "The Iceman" was taken.. so he had to use "The Snowman"

Boner- March 13, 2008 at 8:59 pm
Wow, nearly every time just before i clicked that link, i thought to myself, "please don't let it be this" and BOOM it was.
cw- March 13, 2008 at 8:56 pm
With that 'stache Don Frye should be called the 'Sexual Predator'.
cpanger- March 13, 2008 at 7:55 pm
Hong-man Choi should be "big pimpin" with that picture.
