i think he deserves it.
17 ufc fights- 11 ufc wins- ufc mw champ
i don't think there are any retired ufc vets with these credentials
put him in the hall of fame not because he just passed but because he is one of the great ufc fighters

Anyone else thought that the tribute to Tanner was downright shameful?

I didn't mean he doesn't deserve consideration. I just was saying there are a bunch of guys who deserve it more or before him.

F. Shamrock, Miletich, Mo Smith, Don Frye, Tito and Big John McCarthy all come to mind.

Its horrible that he died, dont get me wrong. but just becuase you feel bad about something that happened doesnt mean you put him in the hall of fame. There are alot of ways to honor Evan Tanner, but he doesnt deserve the HOF.
How about the UFC Medal of Honor
