two great choices. Liddell is arguably the greatest UFC fighter of all time. and Mask has done more for the sport and the fighters than almost anyone. it would be hard to beat out one of these two. especially at UFC 100. great picks UFC i don't know why they just don't do three and add Tanner.

imo only fighters should be inducted into the hall of fame. this is mma not the clothing business. only people i ever see wearing tap out are punk wannabee's who think it makes em look tough. tap out is the biggest punch line among my gym mates. especially after they came out with the new commercial that says "its not just about wearing a Tshirt". it was as if they knew they were being made fun of and had to make theyre own version of a press release before it got outa hand

Not a surprise, I'd still like to see Jens and Tanner in there though.

Good choices imo. Although i get the feeling Chuck's inclusion is maybe to help him decide to retire.

I still think it should be Helio Gracie along with Mask.

As with other hall of fames,not just fighters are inducted.Promoters,managers,refs,and people who have contributed to the sport deserve to be inducted.

Coleman was inducted and announced he was fighting brock lesnar immediately after. Royce was inducted and said he wanted another fight. lidell definitely deserves it and they really need an inductee that can accept on their own behalf. maybe he will announce an equally ludicrous match up.

tanner could have been added as a third i guess but i'm sure he will be down the road.

Tapout has done a bunch for the sport and helped a lot of fighters get there start when they had nothing. So even though Tapout might be a joke to you and your gym, ther are other people that got there start from tapout so I think in the sense of support for the sport of MMA Mask defintely deserves a spot.
