The Ultimate Fight-Name Championship – Modern Classic Bracket

    With little MMA to go around during the holidays and in the first few weeks of 2022, we decided to get to the bottom of some real hard-hitting problems in the world of MMA. The most vital and important question of this, and every, year is who has the best fight-name in the history of MMA. So, we’re unleashing a 64-man (and women) bracket to determine who’s nickname reigns supreme.

    Over the last couple days, we released the first two regions. You can find the brackets (and results when they come out for it) right here and right here. For today’s reveal, we’re giving you the modern classics. These are fight-names that are synonymous with the fighters themselves and are ones that will stand the test of time.

    With each and every round, you can follow along and vote on our Twitter account or on our Instagram. And, of course, if we left out a fighter you think should have made it into the bracket, let us know on those socials or in the comments. Also, stay tuned for the other brackets coming out soon.
