Anyways, another reason fighters get a nickname is because a certain word goes with their last name. Like Sean "The Shark" Sherk or Matt "The Terror" Serra.
But in the end, the a good reason company's have no problem with this is because it helps with the marketing.
Some people just don't have nicknames. Matt Hughes comes to mind.
You're undercutting Sean there, he's not just The Shark he is the Muscle Shark
Favorite fighters: GSP, F. Griffin, Jon Jones, Nick Diaz, Carwin, Ken Flo, Leben
