Somehow, Justin McCully’s Nickname Has Gotten Worse

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?

I will not piss off, fuck you very much. You're the newcomer here, and the only thing you'd make tap is your kid sister with your "practice UFC moves".
Oh, and hi to you too.

We're all glad you're back Mr. Sample. Now all we have to do is get Hal and Tuf Guy to post a few things, and we'll all be happy!

P.S. Is that the "long I" sound in the word "Sniches", and if so can we please get the definition.

I could never cheer for a person that would call themselves an american version of an actual person, wtf? go latch onto his balls if you want to be him so bad. If someone called me the american someone i'd physically or verbally slap the piss out of them.

Bovice- August 25, 2009 at 11:44 pm
Dude looks like he's gonna lose.
PurplePickle- August 25, 2009 at 10:51 pm
Fowlkes already came out on a podcast saying McCully don't belong, but if you have heard Justin on Junkie Radio, he sounds like the fighter's fighter. This should give all of you wannabe armbarrers and KO artists a heads up.

The UFC is just like the NFL. The sorriest muthafucka that shows his ass in the octagon will still beat the living fuck out of you nine times out of ten, regardless of his ignorant ass ebonics nickname.

Ben, CP nation:

This was McCullys previous nick name, he changed it to 'The American Fedor' recently.

The UFC being the UFC does not want Fedors name uttered at all on their broadcast, so in turn they went ahead and changed the poor bastards nickname back for him.

"The Nsane1" Jus10 Mc™Cully... A whole new breed of badass. Now if he could just learn how to fight.
Phil Baloni- August 25, 2009 at 9:03 pm
you know what's more 'N Sayne? dude is still in the ufc. maybe i'm being too harsh. wait, see the hardonk fight. yep, we have confirmation, mccully's fights are about as exciting as a bag of wet pubes.

in other nickname news, there's a kid in canada who fights at featherweight and his nickname is josh "BEEFSTORM" spong.

uh huh.
