“When were about 12 or 13, there was a game my friends and I used to play on the XBox called Ultimate Fighter and we had to create characters,” Florian revealed. “These characters came with names, and they chose Big Nasty for me and that’s kind of stuck with me. It’s no stripper name or anything like that.”
