I think he should, he has an outstanding career record of 2-2, he knocked the huge Emmanuel Yarborough down using his incredible "tiger claw" punch. He almost beat Royce Gracie, and everyone loved watching him punch Joe Son in the balls.

Keith was a "REAL" legend of the sport.Back when it was about fighting whoever in the hell they threw at you,and not bitching about how much you were getting paid.It makes me physicaly sick people do not know who Keith Hackney is.guess that's how it goes though.Hackney for his day was one very tough dude though.I can't say he's a legend by todays standards,but for his time I say he was one of the toughest guy.Especialy considering he had no ground skill.If a guy like Hackney would have been fighting in Pancrase prior to UFC,he could have very well came in a little more well rounded and have one the whole damn thing when you factor in how much raw striking power the dude had.

It's funny people never hear the backstories of how some of these guys got in the original UFC.Makes you realize how tough they really were for their time.Take Johnny Rhodes for example.The guy gets no mention today,but the guy he beat the shit out of to get in the UFC still gets worship status.Know who it was?

Frank Dux. The man who inspired the movie "Blood Sport" starring Jean Claude Van Damme.Orginaly Art Davie and Rorion Gracie were going to approach Dux about being a participant in the first UFC,but after witnessing a backstage scuffle at a Karate tournement were Rhodes deystroyed Dux,they instead invited the unknown Rhodes into the tournment.

I'm not saying Hackney is the baddest dude around. By todays standards he would get deystroyed.But hey,the guys he's training have decent records,so at least he's evolved with the times and is using his experince to teach a new generation of fighters.That is very commendable if you ask me.Even Bas has done a little instructing at Hackneys school.So it's not like the guy is running around being a White Tiger dude,like he was back in the day.Claiming Kung Fu is all you need to be a great fighter.

a, a, a, a, Where's all the love for the big dowg hackney my brothers .. ??

...Should i be in the hall of fame, ... "America .. **** yeh" I should be. Fighters like joe son and that hairy little skinny toe rag gracie made their careers from fighting the kempo nut cracker Hackney !! Royce went onto fight a few more less skilled fighters, then retired when his brother RORIAN .. (UFC co-owner and random draw fight chooser) :) thought royce was about to become beatable as the likes of ken shamrock exposed the gracie style as a sneaky submission style. As for joe son, c'mon yal, He got himself a part in Austin powers playing odd job, and he got to hang out with kimo. When everyone in the cinema saw him, i bet they shouted ... " look there's that guy from the UFC who got his nuts punched up into his stomach by the legendary KEITH hackney who should be in the hall of fame" !!!!

See boys, hackney is the legend of the UFC, I went out to put it down. I used to put my tight pants on, slip over my tight vest (like the one yarborough ripped off) brush back my beautiful silky hair then go out in that cage to kempo some ****** !!!

Luke Cummo didn't fight guys that weighed 200lbs more than him, and win. Or Royce Gracie.

Keith Hackney was my favorite fighter back in the day.

If you're going to troll on somebody, at least pick someone worthy of it. Hackney was a great fighter for his time, and doesn't deserve some of the ridicule he garners.

What are you talking about: "what have you done thats so impressive?"

I never claimed to do anything that's impressive, so what's your point?
