@bradthom martin told the story in his post fight interview.
His mom was gonna name him rocco but decided not to because she thought he would get into too many fights. Ironic. So he changed it to rocco.

@FreeMoney.... Yea I missed that. Took a piss. But that's pretty frickin ironic if that's the truth. That his mom thought he'd get into tooo many fights with a name like Rocco.. That was a goood quality win for him tho, still undefeated at Welterweight (3--0). But I hafta say it, Tony ROCCO Martin.... For the love of gaaawwd.. Please shave off those ****-king muttonchops! I'm surprised his wifey (Kayla Harrison) even let's him walk around the house with that ****

Yeah. Funny too how he tells dan hardy and hardy says "we've been calling u rocco martin all night" interview ends then to the crowd he goes "lets hear it for anthony martin everyone" 
I didn't know kayla harrisson was his wife. But I kinda think the chops suit him.
And i felt he was down two rounds when he pulled it off but he did pull it off.
He also said they should make a 165 weightclass.
