Hopefully they will also bring him back in for a few fights also. Along with Randleman and Baroni. (wishful thinking)

I'd like to see him in one of the larger organizations, but not the UFC. I just don't think he has a place there anymore. He needs to fight in Strikeforce or go take another shot at Fedor in M-1. I definitely think he deserves to be in the HOF, but not on their current roster of fighters. Sorry

He deserves it. Along with Pedro Rizzo and Pat Militech

i think he said it because theyre all hammerhouse guys.

coleman is deserving of a spot in the HOF, and who knows, maybe they bring him in for one or two more fights. its not like the HW division is full of people waiting on a title shot at this point so he may well get a chance or two in the octagon.

Hell Yeah! My favorite HW gets inducted! This is long overdue since he was the first UFC heavyweight champion ever. Forget was anybody says, he should only have 1 loss. He was robbed against Rizzo! Nevertheless he deserves, congrats Mark!

That's pretty good news

It would be cool if he did come back for a few fights too, that would be pretty awesome
