If a non-champion deserves to be in the HOF, its definitely Florian.
Yeah, he never won the belt but he fought top top competition every single fight. Hes been in 4 Weight classes, hes exciting, he finishes. He also works as an analyst and covers when Joe Rogan is sick. TUF finalist. He definitely deserves HOF honors.

HOF = Exceptional performance, contribution to the sport

I don't know about you guys or the UFC but the name Kenny Florian is screaming for HOF.

And come on, give it to him, hes lost 3 title fights. Hes sad.

Consistently, yes.

Jose Aldo, Diego Nunes, Gray Maynard, Takanori Gomi (maybe not him)
Clay Guida, BJ Penn, Joe Stevenson, Roger Huerta, Joe Lauzon
