Jose Aldo as...Scarface?

Recently saw an article on Aldo vs. Florian and saw for the first time "Scarface" as the nickname for the Featherweight champion. I think there are too many overused (Pitbull, Spider/Da Spyda) or unearned (For some reason "the Insane One" Justin McCully comes to mind i think he looks like Kenny Powers) he just looks kinda like nicknames out there.

But I digress. Scarface, huh? You think you can live up to to a name like that Mr. Aldo? Do you think you could cement a name like that in the place of MMA history? I'm talking about the OG nicknames out there, you know the ones. Chuck the Iceman Liddell, Quentin Rampage Jackson, Shogun Rua, the Axe Murderer, Randy the Natural Couture, the list goes on.

I think he does. Now there's no saying this name will stick by any means but I think it is a perfectly fitting name for the potential legacy that Aldo could build. He has the perfect scar on his face (Scarface, get it?), and has given out a a few scars as well. Ask Cub Swanson. 

Random post but what do you all think about this new tag Jose Aldo may be repping and your takes on the state of nicknames in MMA.
