The Ultimate Fight-Name Championship – Round of 32 (Pt 2)


    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.

    After a hotly contested first round, we’re on to the second – the round of 32. In both the Modern Classic Bracket and the Wildly Unique Bracket, we need your help in determining who belongs in the sweet 16. In the Modern Classic Bracket, we’re looking at fight names that may be considered iconic one day. In the Wildly Unique Bracket, we’re focused on some of the wackiest monikers out there that are not often replicated.

    With each and every round, you can follow along and vote on our Twitter account. 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. Without further ado, the round of 32 (part 2):
