The UFC releases TUF Brazil candidate list

The first round of TUF Brazil tryouts took place recently and the UFC has taken the unusual step of releasing the names (and nicknames) of the 328 fighters advancing forward. No records, though. As you might expect from a bunch of South American fighters, there were eight guys with Pitbull based nicks and tons with other various scary names like Massacre, Destroyer, Psicopato and Porco Loco. Other interesting nicknames: Van Damme, Osama, and Terrorista. Why do I get the feeling this list is less for fans to pore over in excitement and more so the names can be vetted by the public for serial killers and violent criminals?
