The Ultimate Fight-Name Championship – Elite 8 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.

The brackets are winding down as we head on to the Elite 8! That’s right, just 8 names remain of our original 64. Already seven-eighths of the names have been eliminated, but there are still plenty of classics and wild ones. Some icons and some that come from specific regions. You can check out the individual results of each match up by checking out the past posts. Each of the pages have been updated with the percentages that each fighter got.

We’re in the finals of each of the individual brackets that we originally released. Which fight-name is the greatest in MMA history? You can have your say. But first, check out who survived the sweet 16 below and get ready to vote.

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 Elite 8:
