His nickname

Nick was named after an unfortunate animal breed, the “fainting goat,” after displaying the habit of getting knocked out almost on command during his early days in the gym. He shed half of his moniker when he showed a growing propensity to maintain consciousness, but the reminder is still there. While fans may raise their eyebrows at his resulting nickname, he's the Goat today only because he refused to get too comfortable on the floor.

Video Games

On 17th of November 2009, he was confirmed on the roster of EA MMA.
