For some time now, Justin "The Insane 1" McCully has had one of the worst nicknames in the UFC. By implying that the owner of such a nickname is not only crazy, but possibly the only crazy person alive, it’s a nickname that manages to be both cliche and nonsensical all at the same time. But that apparently wasn’t enough for McCully. He had to go and get tricky with the spelling.
Now McCully is "The Nsane 1" instead of "The Insane 1" or even "The Insane One." Of course, it’s still the same lazy nickname, but like the girl who insists on telling you that her name is Staci with an ‘i’, he just gets to correct people and look like a jerk more often. Will it help him at UFC 102 this weekend when he takes on Mike Russow — a UFC newcomer who is a -250 favorite over McCully? Probably not.
But the real question is, did McCully actually contact the UFC about changing the spelling of his nickname on the website and, if so, was that request followed by a long pause as they waited for him to admit that he was just screwing with them?
